Kolkata: Griffins International School launches Project “Earth Ambassador” on Earth Day this year.
Earth Day is not just a day for cultural events at Griffins International School. It is an integrated part of the school curriculum to make the students climate educated.
Under this project “Earth Ambassadors” the dedicated students will spread awareness about Carbon Footprint, suggesting effective means to reduce it through simple yet effective manners.
As “Earth Ambassadors”, a group of enthusiastic students will take the campaign forward. The project is spearheaded by the principal Mrs. Sarbari Brahma and learned mentors Mr. Sourav Bhattacharya and Ms. Arpita Roy.
Under the ‘Paryavaran Sanrakshan Gatividhi’ program, Griffinites created Eco bricks in order to spread awareness towards creating a plastic free and safe planet for the future generations.
An Eco brick is a plastic bottle packed with used plastic. They serve as reusable building blocks. Eco bricks can build furniture, gardens, play parks, structures and more.
Mr. Abishek Yadav, Chairman, Griffins International School, commented, “The earth is all that we have in common. Let us encourage these young ambassadors and act with them to make Earth a better place to live for the future generations.”
”Eco-bricks prevent plastic waste from disrupting the ecosystem and create an ecological consciousness against plastic. It saves the earth from being infertile. It reduces the cost of manpower and the usage of machinery. Our children are making Eco-bricks with plastic bottles. We hope one day this baby step will shape up the future of environment-awareness among children” – Mr. Yadav added.
