To commemorate World Environment Day (WED), MWC Chennai organized an awareness session on "Say No to Plastic". The awareness camp covered a cross section of the Community in and around MWC, comprising students and staff of Government Higher Secondary School, Anjur (adjoining MWC Chennai); students at Mahindra World School, landscape and housekeeping workers at MWC and our associates.
MWC in partnership with NGO World Vision undertook the mission to spread awareness on the consequences of using plastic. The message of "Say No to Plastic" was passed on in a very engaging and entertaining manner using folk songs and dance by folk artiste group "Vidiyal". The group enacted three plays and few songs on themes of Say no to plastic, grow more trees and benefits of trees. These programs were very well received by the school children who, at the end of the program, were given a wonderful surprise - a cloth bag with a fruit bearing sapling.
They were overjoyed as they glanced into their own bags and their friends bags to receive this wonderful gift. Over 800 children and 300 employees and workers were covered as part of the World Environment Day celebrations.
