The theme for Earth Day 2017 is. The students of The Paras World School volunteered to undertake a save our environment literacy drive in their community on the theme ‘Environment & Climate Literacy’. They drafted a petition letter in school collectively requesting residents in their community to stop using polythene bags as plastic is detrimental to our environment as it takes 500 years to decompose. Each student promised to reach out to at least 10 people in their neighborhood to spread literacy and get their signatures to reduce/stop usage of plastic bags. The children will be collecting plastic bags and then creating woven shopping bags out of this plastic which can used over and over again. Kudos to our children at The Paras World School looking to make a difference one person at a time!!!!!!!
