They learned the process of making paper bags and collectively took an oath to avoid using plastic bags and use paper or cloth bags.

Chief Sanitation Officer Mr. Rajendra Sonawane informed the students about the plastic ban and to avoid the use of plastic bags and opt for paper and cloth bags instead. An appeal was made on this occasion to encourage the students to use cloth or paper bags by conveying the ill effects of plastic to every person they come in contact with in their homes.
