Green Initiative Drive by making Eco-friendly Paper Pens

A Green Initiative Drive in association with Centre of Social Concern, St Aloysius College (Autonomous) held on 4th November, 2020 at in Xavier Auditorium. Mentors of B.Com department participated in the drive.

Mr Jayaprakash Yekkuru the resource person, an active environmentalist shared his expertise and trained the mentors to make eco-friendly paper pens in which a vegetable seed was implanted. He also created awareness among the mentors regarding eco-friendly fish bags and to collect plastic waste in plastic water bottles.

Around 33 mentors from the department of commerce participated in the program and learnt to make paper pens as a part of Sahaya Activity. The mentors will in turn guide their mentees to make five more pens.

As an extension of the paper pen making activity, each student will make five paper pens and distribute them to five other younger students and thereby create and spread awareness to use eco-friendly pens.

This program enriched the resourcefulness of the mentors in conserving the environment and in sensitizing the mentees under their care.
