Date: 29th December, 2018
Time: 2:30 p.m. – 6:30.p.m.
Venue: Majgoan Gram Sabha
Organised by: PHCASC NSS Unit

The NSS Unit of Pillai HOC College of Arts, science and Commerce, Rasayani had an active participation in Anti-Plastic Campaign under Unnat Bharat Abhiyan. The anti-plastic campaign has been formulated to build the capacity of Majgoan communities about the various effects of plastic waste on their ecosystem under the banner of UBA. This project was developed due to the acclimatized usage and habitual inappropriate disposal of polythene bags and other plastic items by community dwellers in Majgoan communities in and around.

Despite the sensitivity of the ecosystem Majgoan and its inhabitants find themselves in, inappropriate waste disposal is a habit of the community. Upon visiting the village, plastic waste, especially used polythene bags, were found in and around houses in the community. The anti-plastic campaign and community capacity building event brought together 30 volunteers – a mix up of students (youth) and adults who have interest in environmental advocacy.

At this point, volunteers were equipped with all the knowledge they had spoken against the excessive use of plastics and proper disposal of its resulting waste.
