“Things turn out best for those who make best of how things turn out”
– John Wooden
On 24 September 2018 Christ Junior College held its very own intercollegiate fest Magnachrista and project exhibition Cosmos. ‘Best Out of Waste’ was one of the events conducted by the Science Forum and Eco Club Team. Ingenious and imaginative minds came together to display their talents on how to preserve, recycle, conserve, reduce and reuse waste. These values are imbibed in young hearts and minds by demonstrating this noble act of concern and care towards the environment.
Every year, a ton of waste is produced globally. Everything can be reused if creative and thoughtful minds are put to work. The students of Jain College, Jyoti Nivas College, CMR PU College, Christ Academy Junior College, Mount Carmel PU College, Kumarans PU College and Transcend PU College proved it by their outstanding and creative products.
The best creation was a ‘Multipurpose Bowl’ made by Hassini and Keerthna of Mount Carmel PU College. The participants used waste items such as newspapers, old CDs, straws, paper cups, plastic spoons, rags, waste cloth, plastic bottles, waste wood from construction sites and many more.
Waste is a huge threat to the environment and public health. It is linked to the way society is producing and consuming goods of any kind. Waste creates pollution of all kinds that is detrimental to the environment as a whole.
Plastic, being one of the most harmful, dangerous and toxic waste, that we use in our daily lives, takes more than hundreds of years to degrade. It is hazardous due to styrofoam and polystyrene foam. This is the reason why plastic is banned in many parts of India. Recycling paper has become a rapidly growing trend in today’s world. It has a huge demand of markets for its organic aspect.
Waste creates pollution of all kinds that is detrimental to the environment. If we don’t act today, tomorrow will not be a safe place for the coming generations. Let us do our bit to help the environment and create a healthy place to live by getting the best out of waste.
