Schoolchildren focus on eco-friendly practices

Exhibits highlighting eco-friendly practices such as the use of garlic waste to keep mosquitoes at bay were displayed by schoolchildren as part of the competitive events held on the second day of Balotsav-2013 here on Saturday. The participants of a novel competitive event titled “Vyarthamtho Artham” put up a wide range of exhibits, including several working models, to highlight the vibrant concept “Making wealth out of waste”.

The exciting event was held under the supervision of Balotsav-2013 convener V Ramesh Babu. Donning the role of environmental campaigners, the students displayed thought-provoking exhibits on generation of power from municipal solid waste, domestic waste and garbage. Ramya, a class X student of Nava Bharath School, Palvancha, prepared a garland made of garlic waste during the competitive event held at Kothagudem Club late in the evening.

Garlic peels can act as an excellent natural mosquito repellent. Garlands made of garlic peels can be tied to the main entrance doors of houses to keep mosquitoes at bay, she said.

Algae is a potential source of biofuel and if harnessed effectively could become a viable alternative to meet the growing energy needs and could also preserve the fast depleting conventional energy sources, said Vikranth, another student.
