Beat the Plastic Pollution

The objective of the project was to educate people about the hazards of single-use plastic and introduce them to alternate methods. The team decided to make the longest rope using single-use plastic carry bags. To execute this project, collection points were set up in the town and a mobile unit was deployed to collect the waste from households. This rope-making activity was conducted for two days and the end result was a 2.261 km long rope. This marquee project was recognised by the Limca Book of Records.
