To check the increasing use of materials causing life threatening environmental pollution, the Eco-Club of KCET shifted to the welcome use of plates made of tree leaves during langar in connection with the Ardas Diwas function held in the college. The Langar was partaken by more than 1000 devotees, Staff and students on these leafy platters as they are biodegradable in nature. This clearly sent a message to the people to discard the use of cups & plates of plastic/Styrofoam which are non biodegradable and add to heaps of garbage piling up on road.
Gunbir Singh, Chairman, Eco-Amritsar shared his views, “Cleanliness drives are but a small measure to constantly raise awareness about the importance of this very aspect. We are very concerned about the rankings of our wonderful city as far as the cleanliness index is concerned. The citizens of this city will surely do their bit to reverse the disturbing reality”
“The Diaspora loves and adores the city of Amritsar and is always concerned about the ecological well being of this wonderful city. We are sure that with the efforts of the citizens, a change is just around the corner” said Dr. Rajwant Singh, Chairman EcoSikh, USA
