A typical Sunday morning in Connaught Place. Or not! That is what the Enactus Team from Delhi School of Economics- Department of Commerce, achieved on Sunday with their “Donate Your Plastic Drive”. With a whopping collection of over 300 plastic bottles and other plastic waste, the drive also saw a small fundraiser organized by the team.
As a part of their first project as an Enactus Team, Project Misaal, the team seeks to work towards the empowerment of physically handicapped and impoverished segments of society by using waste management as a means of revenue generation. For their curtain raiser event today, the team sold products made by physically handicapped individuals of the Yamuna Basti. The products on sale ranged from garden lamps to flower vases and Minion Holders to Hanging Planters. Not only did the team successfully sell out all the products, they also brought a smile on the faces of many a CP- goers.
So what do you do if you missed it? Well, the team promises to be back, this time with many more products for their fundraiser. Gives you a reason to visit CP, doesn’t it?
Way to go, Team Enactus!
