Chandigarh Schools' Environmental Initiative Shines Despite Pandemic

Students and teachers in Chandigarh and its surrounds are ensuring their ‘zero per cent waste generator’ project at home and school is not left behind despite restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. At least 10 schools, both private and government institutions in the tri-city of Chandigarh, Panchkula and Mohali, are managing organic, plastic and electronic waste scientifically, in collaboration with the Union Territory’s Environment Department and a four-year-old start-up. St. Stephen’s, a leading city-based school has been at the forefront of the ‘zero per cent waste generator’ initiative for over two years now.
