KATHMANDU: The Embassy of Israel initiated an Environment Conservation Activity under a slogan, “Stop Pollution: Used Batteries Collection” in cooperation with schools in the federal capital.

The goal of the project is to contribute to environmental pollution mitigation measures. The Embassy of Israel collaborated with schools of the Valley, including Kathmandu Pragya Kunja School, Shanti Sikshya School, KMC School, Kavya School, among others, in reducing pollution with individual steps of their students.

Accordingly, the students collected used batteries (alkaline batteries, coin cell batteries and other non-rechargeable batteries), brought it to the school, which later were taken for recycling at DOKO Recyclers.

Also today, an event was held at Kathmandu Pragya Kunja School to hand over collected used batteries with an important message of responsibility of an individual step towards cleaner environment. The jars of batteries were collected and handed over to DOKO Recyclers.

On the occasion Minster of Forests and Environment Ramsahay Prasad Yadav said human activities are hampering themselves, flora, fauna and the nature, as a whole, and this initiative will definitely contribute to the environmental protection. He further said that the socio-economic development should not happen at the expense of environmental degradation and we should preserve our nature.

Speaking at the program, Ambassador of Israel to Nepal Hanan Goder said natural treasure of Nepal is too important for us to neglect and Israel is proud to be a part of this environmental initiative.
