Awareness Rally Against Plastic Bags by St. Soldier Group of Institutions

Chairman Anil Chopra and Chairperson Sangeeta Chopra of St. Soldier Group of Educational Schools and Colleges to-day flagged off an Awareness Rally against the use of plastic, especially plastic bags. Plastic bags are highly harmful for environment . They do not begin to degenerate before 25 years. If burnt they release harmful gases.

Earlier environmental friendly paper bags or " Doona" made of baked clay or leaves were used which were environmental friendly. Plastic bags , in fact, contaminate the contents kept in them especially food items.
