Class XII student on a mission against single-use plastic in Rewari

Tribune News Service

Rewari, October 3

Every time, Nandini (17) receives her pocket money, she buys a variety of fabric of different colours and sewing material — not to make clothes for her, but to sew bags for people of her city.

Her objective is to sensitise people against the use of single-use plastic.

Nandini, Class XII student

Initial steps

Our house was under repair three years ago. Every day, I saw labourers bringing their food in polythene bags. I knew it was harmful for their health. So, I started sewing cloth bags for them.

Inspired by her maternal grandmother, Nandini started making cloth bags three years ago when she saw labourers having their food from polythene bags.

"Our house was under repair three years ago. Every day, I saw labourers bringing their food in polythene bags. I knew it was harmful for their health. So with the help of my mother, I sew cloth bags for them. That gave me a sense of satisfaction. In return, I made them promise me that they won't use polythene bags in future," the Class XII girl says. So far, she has distributed more than 10,000 cloth bags.

Her mother and grandmother cut the cloth, while her 12-year-old cousin Harsh help her in sewing bags. "Harsh and I dedicate at least two hours every day to sew bags," Nandini says.

Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and other ministers have appreciated her endeavour, while Deputy Commissioner Yashendra Singh visited her house when he learnt about her effort.
