The ‘Bring Your Own Bag’ (BYOB) campaign had covered Central Park-I on May 18. It was encouraging to see the enthusiasm of the residents for this campaign.
All of them signed a pledge to support the campaign. They also involved their local vegetable and grocery vendors to reinforce this message. The vendors were given shopping bags for renting out to residents. A short movie was shown to the vendors and residents to emphasize the damage done by plastic and polypropylene bags.
It was especially heartening to see the participation of the children who asked a lot of questions and did a great job in creating the Mascot, GAPI using old cartons and gunny bags. They saw the short movie and their reaction was, “is this Gurgaon?
Our hope is that children become our guides in correcting our deep-rooted habits that are no longer helpful to the environment.
