Quick Race

Earth Day, which is commemorated annually on 22nd April, witnesses various environmental events worldwide. In honor of the momentous date, EEG rolled out a special Quick Race Challenge where student members were asked to collect a minimum of 5 kg of aluminium cans for recycling over a period of one week. In 2019, more than 100 kg of aluminum cans were collected for recycling and this helped to mitigate 1.7 MT CO₂e, saved 26 million BTU of energy and 2.8m³ of landfill space. Participants were issued certificates upon reaching the target and their contribution was also counted towards the Your Can For a Tree campaign, bringing them a step closer to planting an indigenous sapling in their name at the end of the year.
