Chandigarh, June 4:- Celebrating the World Environment Day, making promises to make the earth healthier and greener for generations to come, the students of St. Joseph’s Senior Secondary School, Sector 44-D, Chandigarh made Eco-bricks  in assistance with the sanitation department of Municipal Corporation, Chandigarh.

Sharing this information, Dr. Amrit Pal Singh Warring, Medical Officer of Health, MCC said that the brain child of this innovative idea were the cabinet members of the school lead by the head girl Shreya Chawla and the head boy Jayant Sharma. It was the head girl who took the initiative as per her last year’s World Earth Day commitment when she was felicitated as ‘Rising Star’ by ‘Earch Day Network’.

Dr. Amrit said that both the students approached the MCC and shared the idea of the school’s contribution in making the Eco-bricks; which was well received by the department. Then this plan was executed by the Ashoka House under the able guidance and motivation of Ms. Paramjit, who enlightened the students and more than 1000 Eco-bricks were finally collected.


He said that in this process of making these bricks, students learnt valuable lessons including they serve as reusable building blocks and could be made use for making furniture, garden walls and other structures.  Students also understood that it becomes their personal responsibility to get rid of the plastic that we use and to dispose it off in a constructive, sensible and wise manner.
