REPORT-TETRA PAK AMBASSADOR PROGRAMME
I am Pratishtha Verhwani, of VIII C, a member of Earth Saviour's eco club was selected for Tetra Pak Ambassador Programme 2014-2015, as a part of Project SEARCH.
On 11th and 12th of November, she visited the recycling plant- Khatema Fibres in Rudrapur, Uttarakhand along with 5 other students from Delhi and 6 from Chandigarh.
The students had a pleasurable journey. Making new friends and getting to know people, all the way. They stayed at the guest house with a beautiful environment, leaving the nature-lovers awestruck!
The first day, being very informative, helped the students to know about Tetra Pak. They learnt about how to "be the Change, you want to see in the world". These ambassadors are now going to lead making others to follow, making Mother Earth a better place to live, if every one unites! They also interacted with the coordinators from Teri and Tetra Pak . They all had some amazing group activities too!
On the second day, they visited the plant made on 27 acres of land where a wide range of eco-friendly papers are manufactured and Tetra Paks are recycled which is done by enormous machines. They were mesmerized to see the white paper turning into pink, yellow and numerous colours! The students had a Q&A session where they further acquired knowledge about recycling. Leaving no stone unturned and gathering all they could, returned all the Tetra Pak Ambassador

He discussed various ways to conserve water, electricity, hence reducing our carbon footprints. He quoted examples of several simple and practical practices which can be adopted such as bringing down the temperature of room by 70 C by placing wet gunny bags on the roof, reducing the capacity of old flush system by putting water filled bottles in the cistern hence displacing water. Leaves and organic waste can be decomposed at home in big pots using mud.
Rightly said ‘Waste is a resource but at a wrong place’. It was an informative and an inspiring workshop.
