~ This time, being the last phase, we distributed the cloth bags to the vendors in Koramangala. About 300 bags were distributed. In total 1200 bags were distributed in 3 phases.
~ We found it was very rare to find shops which use plastic any more. Though it took a lot of time, it gave us immense happiness and satisfaction to find that many shops in and around Koramangala use eco-friendly bags.
~ Also the govt imposing a ban on use of plastics is a very welcoming move as it strengthened our motive, and we see the future a little better.
~ We concluded eco bags with 30+ clubs participating from RI districts 3012 Delhi, 3020 Vijayawada, 3131 Pune, 3140 Mumbai, 3150 Hyderabad, 3160 Davanagere, 3170 Kolhapur and Goa, 3180 Mangalore, 3201 Coimbatore and cochin, 3220 Srilanka & maldives, 3230 & 3231 Chennai.
~ We are enthralled by the true spirit of Rotaraction we felt during this project. Pictures from various clubs are still getting uploaded to our facebook page in a phased manner. A few pictures are below.
