A school in Seva Bigha, Bodh Gaya in Bihar’s Gaya district, has asked children to regularly bring plastic waste from home and dispose of it in a dustbin kept near the school gate. Padampani School does not charge fees from children. The main reason for this is to keep the Bodh Gaya clean.

The school’s expenses are covered by the sale of the waste collected by the students. All the plastic garbage that the children brought from home or on the way, they should throw in the garbage can near the school. Later, this waste is sent for recycling. The money collected from the sale of rubbish goes towards children’s education, food, clothes and books.
