Remember the 3 R's
An initiative to create environmental awareness was conducted for the students of KG II. They learnt about the harmful effects of waste and the ways in which it can be reduced in the surrounding. Simple concepts like throwing chocolate wrappers in the dustbin, carrying cloth bags for shopping, turning the tap off while not in use and avoiding wastage of food were made known to the children. They had various exciting games in which they were asked to pick the right bin to segregate and dispose dry and wet waste. The importance of waste segregation and recycling was shown to them by involving them in activities. They made craft items from paper plates and ice-cream sticks to understand that reusing materials is beneficial which would otherwise go for a waste. Awareness of 3R’s i.e. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle from the early years will help children practice environmental consciousness. This will make them better citizens and inspire others to bring about a change to make the world a better place to live.
