Team ECO ALARMIST carried out a sanitisation drive on Tuesday (9th June, 2020), at Goldighi Mall. They were providing alcohol based hand sanitiser to every visitor in order to ensure that they have sanitised their hands before entering the mall.
The team took the help of a local mechanic to set up a mechanical system which would allow people to trigger the bottle of hand sanitiser without touching it with their hands. The founder of Eco Alarmist, Subhadeep Purkayastha, in a conversation with Cachar Chronicles said, “The manufacturing of the dispenser was done by a local mechanic. Though such things are available in online markets, we believe in #VocalForLocal and thus gave an opportunity to him.”
According to Subhadeep, Goldighi Mall is a socially active place, and considering the fact that, it was opening for the first time post the strict lockdown, crowd is expected. This became the reason behind choosing this place.
The President of Goldighi Municipal Market Management Committee granted them the permission. “The members of the mall committee assisted us very well in instaling the dispenser at the gate of the Mall”, said Subhadeep.
Subhadeep further adds, “By this initiative, we ensured proper sanitisation of the people entering the mall, as we need to be extra cautious in this period of pandemic. In addition to that, we created a job opportunity for the person who constructed the dispenser.”
Eco Alarmist, a group made by a bunch of youth, has been working for the cause of Environmental Protection for a long time. We convey our best wishes to these responsible young citizens.
