In order to cultivate social responsibility in young mind the department conducts a “Plastic Litter Collection Camp” every year. The day of camp students of our department voluntarily participate in the camp and collect the litter in and around streets of Potheri. The collected litter is given to a disposing unit in Potheri. The students thereby create awareness of avoiding plastics among the public.
