In a bid to tackle the pressing issues of waste management, climate change, plastic pollution, and promote sustainable practices, Rise Foundation recently organized a remarkable marathon day-long event in Ahmedgarh (Ludhiana). Collaborating with the Ek Nayi Pahal Club, the event aimed to raise awareness among students by conducting sessions on waste management, composting, ecobricks, and the detrimental effects of plastic pollution. Let’s delve into the details of this impactful event that aimed to inspire a positive change in the community.
- Waste Management Awareness: A Step Towards Sustainability
Rise Foundation, known for its commitment to environmental causes, took the initiative to educate students from various schools in Ahmedgarh about the importance of waste management. By emphasizing the significance of waste segregation, recycling, and reducing waste generation, the sessions aimed to empower young minds with the knowledge to make informed choices for a sustainable future.
- Combating Plastic Pollution: A Call to Action
Plastic pollution has become a global crisis, and addressing it requires collective efforts. The event highlighted the adverse impacts of plastic on the environment, wildlife, and human health. Rise Foundation, in association with Ek Nayi Pahal Club, conducted interactive sessions to educate students on alternatives to single-use plastics and the importance of recycling. Students were encouraged to take a pledge to minimize their plastic consumption and spread awareness within their communities.
- Composting: Turning Waste into Gold
Understanding the significance of composting as a sustainable waste management practice, the marathon event emphasized the benefits of composting organic waste. Students learned about the process of composting, its role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and enriching the soil. Rise Foundation’s experts demonstrated simple techniques for composting at home and encouraged students to actively participate in composting initiatives.
- Ecobricks: Building a Sustainable Future
Another highlight of the event was the introduction of ecobricks—a creative and practical solution to repurpose plastic waste. Students were educated about the process of making ecobricks by compacting plastic bottles with non-recyclable plastic waste. Rise Foundation emphasized the significance of ecobricks in constructing eco-friendly structures and reducing plastic pollution. The event witnessed enthusiastic participation from students who actively engaged in creating their own ecobricks. We made benches in all the 3 schools as sample of application possible from ecobricks. Every bench arrest 9-10kg plastic waste at source.
- Collaborative Efforts: Rise Foundation and Ek Nayi Pahal Club
The success of the event can be attributed to the collaborative efforts of Rise Foundation and Ek Nayi Pahal Club. Both organizations worked hand in hand to ensure a seamless and impactful event.
