Yes to Paper Pens!

Best Practices

The Students of the Chemistry Department of Sacred Heart College in Thevara launched the novel project of producing paper pens under its green-protocol initiatives. This was necessitated as a green audit report showed heaps of plastic in different parts of the campus. Principal Rev. Dr. Prasant Palackappilly. CMI, who is a renowned green activist, urged the students to avoid the usage of plastic pens and switch to ink pens or paper pens. Students of the Chemistry department led by Mr. Sijo Jose and Ms. Somitha Mathew took the challenge of producing paper pens for the campus community. Over 3000 pens have been prepared so far and distributed to students and teachers. College Bursar Rev. Dr. Sebastian John CMI supported the students in this entrepreneurship venture and Dr. Ignatius Abraham, Faculty Member of Chemistry guided this green initiative.

Malabar Christian College in Kozhikode also took up a similar green initiative with 1800 students making paper pens at the same time. Four students in each class were initially trained in paper pen making by the entrepreneurship development club. The pens are being sold through the college department store.
