Green, Clean and Plastic Free Campus @ St. Aloysius College (Autonomous), Mangalore – Press Release 2

When the Earth dies, where will you live?

Introduction:

“Go Green” is one of the most popular catchphrases uttered in today’s society. Everyone is in a struggle to go green and save the environment. When green movement was initiated, it was small and largely unnoticed on a global scale. As time progressed, however, the world became more interested in saving their planet.

To “go green” is to strive for sustainability and protection of the environment. It consists of doing things to protect and conserve the Earth. In light of the worries of global warming and environmental deterioration, our students will completely stop using plastic, and contribute in a Green, Clean And Plastic Free Campus.

Going green is not something that you do on occasion. By this we are trying to bring a sense of responsibility among the students. We will stop using plastic and use alternatives like recycled paper and also give more importance on cleanliness and hence we will contribute in protecting and sustaining the environment.
