Reuse and recycle

Recycling is one of the core tenets for a greener nation

A recent initiative by Bidyanondo Foundation, in which volunteers are turning posters into notebooks and banners into schoolbags, is a terrific example of how creativity and passion can contribute to the fight towards a greener Bangladesh. 

Let’s face it: When it comes to green practices, we do not have the best track record, even though we should. We are, after all, a nation which continues to face the detrimental effects of climate change, and are fighting every year to ensure that the developed countries are held accountable for their immense part in global carbon emissions. 

But such initiatives highlight what we are capable of as a nation -- if only the will is there to execute. 

The authorities would do well to not only incorporate greener practices into their workflow -- in which regard our public offices have not performed the best -- but also take initiatives such as these and welcome them into the governmental fold, and encourage and incentivize such practices so that more and more of us find pleasure in improving the country we live in. 

Recycling is one of the core tenets for a greener nation, and we hope that organizations like Bidyanondo are encouraged to contribute to this fight for more sustainable practices which not only improve the conditions of the city, but also help the poor and needy. 

The schoolbags being made will be given to underprivileged children, but the process, sadly, comes at a cost. We should do everything in our power to ensure that all our activities are carried out with as little damage to the environment as possible.
