Chennai: Diwali's here and celebration spells fireworks for most of us. But, not without the thought of pollution nagging most of us, mind you.
While a lot of us simply talk about environmental pollution during Diwali, a group of youngsters actually conceived a way of
sensitizing the masses about the use of fireworks through D-Day, an event which brought together students from across city schools together to spread the message.
The event, organised by The Environmentalist Foundation of India (EFI), a wildlife conservation and habitat restoration group, was held on 5 November and saw students competing on various themes which included a quiz, junk art, public service videos, photography, JAM to Environment Lawyer and eco drama.
