Teaching children to avoid Single-Use Plastic

Plastic free bag for School kids by Sharonply

On the auspicious day of Vijayadasami (Oct 19, 2018), 1650 students of Madanlal Khemani Vivekananda Vidyalaya, Gummidipundi, were given Plastic Free School Bag Kits. This Plastic Free School Bag Kit contained a steel lunch box, a steel water bottle, a steel spoon and a steel fork. This was a small effort to inculcate the habit of choosing non-plastic items in their everyday lives.

Though plastic is a wonderful material that has made our lives easier, the irresponsible use and disposal has created a monster of a problem that affects the environment and our lives. The world is currently producing nearly 300 million tons of plastic every year. Half of this plastic is used only once.

SHARON PLYWOODS also distributed colourful non-plastic reusable shopping bags among the teachers of the school. This shopping bag is an environmental friendly alternative to the rather dangerous plastic covers and carry bags which are probably used only once. These bags come with pockets to sort the purchases.

Being a plywood company, there is this common belief that we cut down trees. In fact, the use of SHARON PLYWOODS’ products brings down the use of prime wood in interiors and furniture. SHARON PLYWOODS saves upto 95% Prime Wood.

Sharon Plywoods through many such environmentally responsible initiatives have been setting an example of a socially responsible corporate citizen that many other corporates can emulate.
