VINIT WAHI / NEW DELHI
Environment Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan has urged school children to become environment protectors and help the government and society overcome the menace of plastic pollution.
The Minister was addressing a gathering of over 10,000 school children here today, who had assembled to participate in Envithon – a mini-marathon, organised in the run-up to the World Environment Day to be observed on Tuesday.
Dr Harsh Vardhan said, the children have an immeasurable capacity to infuse vigour and enthusiasm into any activity they indulge in and also inspire other people.
He also administered a pledge to the children to undertake one Green Good Deed every day, minimise the use of plastic and contribute their might to totally stop the single use of plastic in day-to-day life.
