SEPTEMBER: Embracing the newer opportunities

Rotaract Club of B. K. Birla College Monthly Newsletter - September 2023

PLAS-PICK : PR & Marketing Initiative

This was an initiative conducted on the 10th September, 2023 to create awareness about the pollution caused due to the excessive use of Plastic and alternate measures to reduce the waste. The participants gathered to collect waste from the college premises. Separate arrangements were made for paper waste and plastic waste.

This project aimed to minimize the effect of plastic on the environment by collecting the waste and promoting environmental sustainability. It also emphasized on using alternative resources for daily use. Plastic is a major threat to the world. It not only causes soil pollution and water pollution, but also poses a threat to the aquatic life. We find reports of plastic waste found in the digestive systems of aquatic animals which causes their death. Furthermore, animals like dogs, cats and cows who search for food on streets and public dustbins consume large quantities of plastic which proves to be fatal.

 

This project, promoted the collection of plastic from our surroundings and disposing it off at the right places. Rotaract aims to promote Community Service and this was a great step towards the motto. We educated the participants on the harmful effects of plastic and its alternative resources. The 3R mantra of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle was also highlighted by the Chairpersons. The project ended with the successful collection of 5Kgs of Plastic.

 

TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT AND NIRMALYA COLLECTION : Partners In Service Initiative

In the bustling month of September, the Rotaract Club of B. K. Birla College, in collaboration with the Rotary Club of Kalyan, undertook a commendable project focusing on Traffic Management and Nirmalya Collection during the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Visarjan.

The Partner-In-Service Avenue project aimed to assist authorities in efficiently handling the large crowds gathered at Ganesh Ghat, ensuring a smooth and safe experience for everyone involved. The team focused on managing the traffic, dealing with a lot of people and vehicles. RC Birla’s team, along with the Rotary Club of Kalyan, worked closely with local authorities to keep everything organized. By planning well and working together, the team made sure everyone stayed safe and the event went off without a hitch.

One key aspect of the initiative was the emphasis on eco-friendliness through Nirmalya collection. The team recognized the importance of environmental sustainability and took proactive measures to collect Nirmalya, the ceremonial offerings. This not only helped maintain the cleanliness of the surroundings but also promoted a sense of responsibility towards the environment among the participants and onlookers.

Through their efforts, the team not only facilitated a seamless Ganesh Visarjan experience but also promoted eco-friendliness, leaving a lasting impact on both the community and the environment.
