HyperCity - Education Drive

Tomorrow is a big day for Mumbai Rewind. 8 students from St. Anne's High School along with some volunteers are going to talk to HyperCity(Supermarket in Malad- Mumbai) customers and educate them about the damage plastic is causing to our environment and Mumbai is specific.

There will be a signature campaign and posters all around prompting customers to reduce and reuse plastic bags.

The students of course had to be trained to talk to these customers. The training sessions were fun filled with arenas as diverse as the school ground. They were taken through all sorts of real life scenarios they could face at HyperCity while interacting with customers.

We are sure these kids are going to reach out to as many as 100 customers and will bring down plastic consumption by a significant amount in HyperCity. More importantly if they convince even 50 people to reduce and reuse plastic bags by as many as 3 a week. That is a reduction of 2 lakh 34 thousand plastic bags in the life time of these 30 individuals. That is the effect these kids can have in a matter of a few hours.

The drive is going to be organized on 30th May 2009 from 2:30pm to 5pm. Join us in our drive:-)
