WordCamp in Kochi has painted green and put forward an initiative to save our Mother Earth. The event invited attention to those who were attending not to carry any plastic materials which are non-recyclable. On the contrary, the event saw television screens across the venues, eliminating placing plastic banners/standees. At the same time, the organizers even considered an idea to replace non-recyclable vinyl banners with cloth banners that the sponsors can re-use for further events.

Furthermore, The organizers even distributed saplings and seeds to the WordCamp attendees entrusting a greener environment for the future.

In the meantime, the idea behind the green initiative has become a success and the credit goes to the proud sponsors for the event whose contributions paid off.
