Eco Club

Eco Club is a platform where we get knowledge about environment. Eco Club enables the students and society to be sensitive towards environmental concern to tackle environmental problems. This club was initially started by the Department of Botany of our college in the year 2005.


The main objectives of Eco Club are:

•  To educate the students about their environment.
• To create a clean and green consciousness among students through various innovative
•  To mobilize students towards scientific enquiry into environmental problem.
•  To involve them in efforts to preserve environment.
•  To motivate students how to imbibe habits and life style for minimum waste generation.


The activities under Eco Club will include:

  1. Motivate the students to keep their surroundings green and clean by undertaking plantation of trees.
  2. Promote ethos of conservation of water by minimizing the use of water.
  3. Motivate students to imbibe habits and life style for minimum waste generation, source separation of waste and disposing the waste to the nearest storage point.
  4. Educate students to create awareness amongst public and sanitary workers, so as to stop the indiscriminate burning of waste which causes respiratory diseases.
  5. Sensitize the students to minimize the use of plastic bags, not to throw them in public places as they choke drains and sewers, cause water logging and provide breeding ground for mosquitoes.
  6. Organize tree plantation programmes, awareness programmes such as Quiz, essay, painting competitions, rallies etc. regarding various environmental issues and educate students about re-use of waste material & preparation of products out of waste
  7. Organize Nature Trail in Wild Life Sanctuaries/Parks/Forest areas to know about the Bio-diversity.
