Summary: "Quoted from the Hindu" The Delhi government has directed all schools in the national capital to restrict students from using plastic covers for their notebooks or books. The order by the AAP dispensation comes following the orders of the Delhi High Court banning use of plastic bags and other such material. "All principals are directed to ensure that students in their respective schools do not use any kind of plastic cover or film for their books or notebooks," said an order by the Directorate of Education (DoE). "This is of immediate importance in view of the upcoming new academic session when students purchase new books and notebooks for their new class," it added. http://www.thehindu.com/todays-paper/tp-in-school/restrict-students-from-using-plastic-covers-for-notebooks-delhi-govt-tells-schools/article23676246.ece This is really a good initiative by the Delhi Government in an effort to reduce the carbon footprint. While we applaud this iniative we look up to other states to come up with a similar initiative.
