On 22nd April, 2015 i.e. on the eve of “International Earth Day” an initiative was taken by the buds of DPS Jammu, under the able guidance of Headmistress (upto Middle school) Ms. Meenu Gupta, created an awareness against the “Harmful Effects of Using Plastic Bags”. The students made beautiful papers bags, and decorate them with VALUABLE SLOGANS. They were taken to WAVE MALL Where they debated about the Harmful Effects of Poly bags stating - Poly bags are polluting land, water and air because they are non-biodegradable. Plastic is impermeable to water & air. It deteoriates the fertility of soil. Even burning causes air pollution as many poisonous gases are produced in the process. We must ban its use. They supported their views by dealing out handmade paper bags. They presented these to 50 shops & many visitors visiting the MALL and urged them to make maximum use of paper bags.

CONCLUSION:
This drive was applauded by the people as they carried their purchasing in their paper bags dealt out by the children. It was a great step taken by DPS JAMMU Which will prove fruitful in saving our beautiful earth from getting deteoriated.
