Three L&T entities joined hands to lend nature a hand
To mark World Environment   Day, three L&T entities – the  Leadership Development Academy (LDA), Corporate Technology &   Engineering Academy (CTEA) Madh, and Navjeevan Hostel at Mulund in Mumbai – came together to undertake green initiatives.
Aligning with this year’s global theme #BeatPlasticPollution, they undertook a drive to move away from the use-&-throw culture to the practice of reuse-recycle. This to remind everyone that the copious and unwarranted use of plastic is causing irreparable damage to our oceans, soil and forests.
The team went to the Rajodi Beach on the Vasai-Virar coastal belt to the north of Mumbai and initiated a clean-up drive. Rolling up their sleeves, they collected about 100 kg plastic litter from the beach and also sensitised the beachgoers against littering the beach with plastic waste. The waste collected was disposed of in bins provided by the local civic body.
This apart, several other green activities were organised at LDA, CTEA and Navjeevan Hostel to raise awareness. Native trees were planted, seeds distributed, the awareness pledge taken, and recycled writing pads and reusable cork tea glasses were distributed.
From mindless use to meaningful utilisation of plastic and adoption of reusable alternatives are key to beat the menace of plastic pollution.
