MRV Goes Green with Diwali Mela
MET Rishikul Vidyalaya Green Diwali Mela is a unique annual event which is organised by the MRV Parent Teacher Association. Keeping the planet green is our responsibility for the next generation. This eco friendly mela was held on 30th October, 2015, it was inaugurated by Mr. Pankaj Bhujbal, Trustee, MET.
Various colorful stalls were set up selling eco friendly merchandise and offering exciting games and activities. Parents also put up counters for serving nutritious snacks. The idea was to highlight how through simple acts we can preserve the Green. The event's proximity to Diwali allowed the festive mood of visitor to readily pick up green decorative and abstract artwork made from recycled materials.
In 2014 MRV started with the School Enterprise Challenge, and began to market the compost that they were making at the school. This business won the Global award and this year MRV has diversified the products. Along with eco friendly Bio Compost recycled from Bio Degradable Waste, MRV now grows Medicinal Plants and made booklets (product catalogue) on the same. MRV has also created its own Cleaning Agent from waste. These products cut down carbon footprint. Compost is packaged as GREENGOLD, Medicinal Plants - GREEN LIFE, Medicinal Booklets - NATURAL SECRETS, Cleaning Agent - GREEN CLEANSER. During the MRV Green Diwali Mela these products were showcased and the Natural Secrets – Product Catalogue was launched.
