Purple Is The New Green


Mission

To teach energy saving and clean practices to promote the sustainment of our world.

Vision

To spread awareness for conservational practices county and statewide.

About

A recycling and conservation campaign started in 2014 to promote clean and energy efficient practices. Each competition, the Hackbots set up dedicated recycling stations for paper, plastic, bottles and cans. In addition stations are set up in the pit if allowed by the admin for the recycling of build parts. This imitative has been taken district wise, with the introduction of a recycling awareness day at elementary schools.
