A concerned group of youngsters who want to see Plastic Free Darjeeling, are requesting all the heads of various schools in our region to kindly read this appeal.
We are the Scavenger Group and we would like to make an appeal to you.
Since the inception of our group, our goal has been to free Darjeeling hills from the gigantic accumulation of plastic wastage. So we have taken this step .
We are fully conscious of the harm that the use of plastic can bring about and to a certain degree, in our town, we have been taking steps to encourage the ban in the use of plastic bottles , bags, packets and have been trying to find ways of disposing of plastic items safely.
However the use of plastic in schools in the form of covers for books may perhaps have escaped our attention.
We would like to point out to you you the staggering amount of plastic which is used in this form, which can neither be recycled nor disposed of safely.
Thus we would like to humbly request you to raise awareness in your institution and help us in this campaign by eschewing the use of plastic covers for books and exercise copies. Since the books are already encased in attractive jackets we feel that to cover them in plastic or paper is unnecessary and wasteful.
We do hope that you will be kind enough to give thought to our request and help us kickstart our campaign against plastic with your cooperation in your school.
