Students from 50 city schools today took a pledge to make their neighbourhood litter-free which will contribute in saving the environment. Around 250 students
took part at the first ever Inter-School Environment Meet where the pledge was taken. 'We are witnessing dumping of waste materials on streets every day and
we can sensitise our family and friends and neighbours on this issue,' a ninth standard student of Loreto House told PTI.She said the 'Nature Club' in her
institution regularly conducts recycling and waste management campaign but at the inter-school environment meet, she could discuss and exchange views with
students from other institutions, teachers and experts on a bigger platform.The students displayed colourful posters and donned attires made by recyclable items
at a fancy dress competition where usable plastic materials like plastic glasses and bottles were stitched to make outfits and accessories.
