Anti Polythene Drive August 2000 (Gallery)
Our 'Anti Polythene drive' is our constant endeavour to protect the environment, to educate the literate and the illiterate about the harmful effects of polythene and benefit the society.
Our rally against polythene in August 2000, was one of the first ones in Jaipur. The then Governor of Rajasthan, Shri Anshuman Singhji, flagged off the rally. A memorandum of demands was presented to the Governor.The Nagar Nigam Authorities, 20 renowned schools of Jaipur, 12 popular ladies Clubs of Jaipur supported it and particiapted in the walk. Pamphlets and cloth bags were distributed and the shopkeepers were educated about the harmful effects of plastic. Covering a distance of 2 kms. it started from Ramniwas Baug and going through Chaura rasta, Badi Choupar and Johri Bazar, it concluded at Ramniwas Baug.
Our drive does not end there. We encourage people to use alternatives to polythene bags. Shubham Sewa provides vocational training to the children of Majdoor basti and others and gets paper bags and cloth bags made from them.
