Udupi, Nov 24: A group of grade 7 students along with teachers of Trinity Central School went on a 'Plastic Free Drive' to the city market here, to convince the vendors on the harmful effect of plastic bags and importance of cotton bags.
The team began their visit from the vegetable market near Diana Circle in the city and then moved on to the vegetable market, behind the KSRTC bus stand and lastly to the flower market behind the service bus stand of Udupi city. The students and the teachers convinced the vendors as well as the buyers about the benefit of cotton bags in place of polythene bags.
They also distributed sample cotton bags to the vendors. The response from the public was really great as many appreciated and supported the cause. The team was lead by Gauthami Kini along with Sujatha and Ranjith.
Overall, 'Let’s save our environment from plastic' was a great experience.
