This month, the Leo Club of Segi College organised an online “Create Your Own Eco Tote Bag” competition, as part of their awareness campaign to reduce plastic pollution. This competition was held specifically to promote the reduction of plastic, through art. A fun and creative way to encourage people to participate while raising awareness.
Registration to participate in the competition commenced on the 12th of July 2021 and was open till the 25th of July 2021. On the 25th, participants were expected to submit their final designs to the committee, through a designated Whatsapp group. It was decided that awards will be given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
Two fellow BAC Leos, Khoo Yi Teng and Neshaila Ram Nayar, registered and took part in the competition, submitting eye-catching and creative designs for the tote bags.
The voting duration was established by the organising committee – 26th July 2021 till 31st July 2021, after which the winners will be announced on the 1st of August 2021. As the voting duration is still ongoing, you can head on over to Segi College’s Facebook page to vote!
Tote bags are not just a trendy way for you to carry your groceries or beach essentials! Did you know that a single plastic bag can take nearly 1000 years to degrade? The negative impacts of plastic pollution on the environment are devastating, as they endanger wildlife and crowd landfills. It is a no-brainer! Tote bags are reusable, they save our planet and best of all they do not suddenly tear and spill all your groceries on the sidewalk.
