Plastic serves as an important agent for environmental pollution. While plastic has many valuable uses, we have become over reliant on single-use or disposable plastic – with serve environmental consequences. Around the world, 1 million plastic drinking bottles are purchased every minute. Every year we use up to 5 trillion disposable plastic bags. In total, 50 per cent of the plastic we use is single use. So collection and recycling of such plastics are of prime important.  Students of the department of biotechnology collected plastic waste from nearby households as a part of BT Green Campus Mission 2018. For that students were divided into groups of 5. They collected plastic waste from the surroundings houses and also give awareness to the public by distributing notice. The venture got great appreciation from the public and the Panchayath.
