MET Sets New Record
MET’s Annual Theme 2014 - ‘Recycle Today, Save Tomorrow’ was presented with a gigantic paper mural made of recyclable newspapers, which is now a crowd-puller in the city. The core purpose in creating this mural is to give a visual voice to the society, to save and recycle paper.
The benefits of reducing, recycling and reusing paper goes far beyond just saving trees and extends to safeguarding our economy and environment in myriad ways. Optimization and conservation of our natural resources is of prime concern. Saving paper is one such initiative by MET this year to go green.
Over 3000 MET students, staff, faculty and parents have collectively contributed old newspapers in order to make this enormous structure stand tall. 1600 man hours have gone into crafting the 450 sq ft. paper wall, which is made of 4,500 kgs of newspaper. METizens believe that by practicing the 3R’s of waste management - Reduce, Recycle, Reuse; we can make our environment safe and healthy. The paper mural has certainly added life and culture to MET’s social initiative.
Indeed, MET is a responsible institution driven by commitments which are socially sensitive.
