  7. 7. DO <ul><li>So we Did: </li></ul><ul><li>I. At our school front: </li></ul><ul><li>We showed ppt presentation. </li></ul><ul><li>Polythene covers were still being used in our school. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>If polythene is not to be used. What then? </li></ul><ul><li>We converted our craft class as temporary workshop of making cloth bags from used dresses. </li></ul><ul><li>In a day we made bags of various size like pencil pouch, Money purse, Hand bag, Vegetable bag, Grocery bag, Fancy fashionable bag etc. </li></ul><ul><li>We put them all for display for our friends to see and get inspiration. </li></ul><ul><li>Next day many got cloth bags, just to show us. </li></ul>
  9. 9. II. Took out a huge rally from our school to the collectorate office with placards & slogans and our handmade bags.
  10. 10. III. We sang a song in our regional language about the ill effects of polythene usage(at Montessori Radio)
  11. 11. Students were advised to use hand made cloth bags instead of plastic covers. Few bags were prepared by students.

We in our pursuit of pleasure and convenience have played or playing a deadly game with Mother Nature, disturbing the Ecological balance </li></ul><ul><li>Plastic is aberration, which is a non-bio degradable and toxic pollutant that plays havoc with Mother Nature. Among all plastic products plastic disposables like Covers & Water glasses are most dangerous as they are used more and discarded in open. Of course they are very convenient and clean but what about the destruction of the ecological balance that is in place for millions of years. Lets’ ban Plastic from our lives or at least plastic covers and disposable glasses . </li></ul><ul><li>We Montessorians have come together to bring awareness among parents and public, in general about the hazards of plastic and motivate them to use the cloth and paper covers, instead. Students are encouraged to make cloth bags with unusable old clothes and jute bags. Students are encouraged to show their creativity and genius in making cloth bags. Hope you too would too do the same and shun plastics. </li></ul><ul><li>Let us together make Kurnool Plastic Free . </li></ul><ul><li>Show concern today for cleaner and greener environment . </li></ul><ul><li>Plastic Mischief on Environment. </li></ul><ul><li>Plastic covers are non-bio degradable and remain intact for hundreds of years. They choke the earth surface making soil unfertile and pollute the ground water too. </li></ul><ul><li>Plastic covers block and choke sewer pipes, drains causing urban flooding during heavy rains. </li></ul><ul><li>Discarded plastic covers get water filled and become breeding place for mosquitoes, which in turn spread diseases like brain fever and malaria. </li></ul><ul><li>Plastic on burning releases harmful gases like CO & CO2 and toxic emissions into the atmosphere, thus polluting the air. </li></ul><ul><li>Food items packed in plastic covers causes Cancer as they are carcinogens. </li></ul><ul><li>Discarded plastic covers when consumed unknowingly by stray cattle cause their death. </li></ul><ul><li>Carry a cloth bag when you go shopping.

  14. 14. From Principal / Parent The activity has brought a minor change in behavior of students. At the same time, ban imposed by local politicians on plastic covers, also helped people around us to reduce using them in day to day life. Most of the people in our town are now switching on to hand made bags and have reduced usage of plastic bags. Head Mistress.
