We learn that the students had collected these used plastic bottles during the last month at various outdoor events, restaurants, public places, etc. As the tree required the same type of bottles, it was a difficult task for the students to collect them, and they were successful in doing so. The goal of the tree is to educate people about a plastic-free environment. And to make this world sustainable, recycling plastic and recycling thoughts is just as important. Reuse, reduce and recycle!

Christmas is a holiday we all celebrate with all our hearts. We cannot celebrate Christmas without Christmas trees. We all buy trees of different sizes and decorate them with lots of lights and toys to celebrate Christmas. But one bad thing about these Christmas trees is the death of living trees for that day. It’s so horrible! Next Christmas 2022, let’s celebrate Christmas in an environmentally friendly way, so that we can protect our mother earth in this dangerous time for nature. The faculty and students of this hotel school have set an example for us with their unique creativity. Well done to them!
