JML School Organises Sustainability Drive

Clean INDIA Project was conceived by a science teacher of the school and assisted by students of secondary school

Jasudben ML School (JML), an ICSE school in Khar, celebrated this year’s Independence Day. Commemorating the country’s 75th anniversary of independence with themes of sustainability, preservation and nurturing of the environment, the secondary students of JML school marked the important occasion with the intention to make a difference in society at large. They undertook a project christened 'Clean India' for which they created a video highlighting 75 measures honouring India’s 75th year of Independence, one can take at an individual grass-roots level to protect the environment and, in turn, the future.

Clean INDIA Project was conceived by a science teacher of the school and assisted by students of secondary school ranging from Grade 5 to Grade 10. 75 different ideas were selected by the group and enacted by the students to make an impact on society.

It is evident that the challenges of this new India are definitely not the same as before, with causes such as sustainability, equality, inclusivity and much more gradually gaining prominence. JML took up the cause of environmental protection this year. This initiative witnessed the students sensitising and spreading awareness about how everyone individually can do their bit to help preserve and nurture the environment in their own way by showcasing 75 steps in a short video. From highlighting measures to reduce plastic usage to conserving water, some of these comprehensive steps included re-using pens with refills rather than throwing them away, opting for paperless (digital) invoicing instead of paper-billing and digital invitations instead of print, using a bicycle and other modes of public transportation, presenting a plant as a gift rather than bouquets, using cloth bags and pouches instead of plastic, using minimal water to wash cars, having a bucket bath, checking the product’s power rating before making purchases, amongst several others.
