Plastic damage

IN A march towards success and technological excellence we have been causing harm to earth in many ways. Plastic that are made from non-biodegradable sources, which emit toxins when burnt causing havoc to the environment.

It is common to see that plastic lying scattered everywhere. Even the best efforts taken by the Government and NGOs in elimination of plastic have proved futile. It would be startling to note that about 400 kg of plastic waste was removed from the Subramanyaswamy Temple at Marudhamalai by the volunteers of Isha Yoga Centre, University of Art of Living, PSGG Kanya Gurukulam and NSS students of Avinashilingam University. Besides, about 300 saplings were planted in the area.
