Organic products will rule the roost in the craftrooms and labs in nearly 400 schools in Hyderabad. Students will now be allowed only to use organic products for their project work besides learning waste segregation practices inside the campus. They have made the resolution as a part of “Swachh Vidyalaya” event which took place in the city this month.
The programme has been devised to raise awareness among students about segregation of the refuse at source and sustainable management of the waste.
Campaign called Swachh Vidyalaya is a joint initiative of ITC’s WOW Clubs in Schools programme, an extension of ITC’s ‘Wellbeing Out of Waste’ (WOW), the Department of Education, Telangana State and Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC).
The programme has been conceived to preclude the conversion of dry recyclables into organic compost through the promotion of segregation at source.
Students put exhibits on display methods of recycle and reuse of the waste. Morale and motivation required for clean environment drive will flow via “Inter-School Recycling Championship Awards”.
