St. Xavier’s College in collaboration with Kolkata Police and Kolkata Municipal Corporation initiated Green Neighbourhood in 2011 wherein students not just keep the campus clean but also the neighbourhood. Since then, bi-weekly, the students go about cleaning the campus and its surrounding areas. They create awareness in and outside the campus through street plays about the ill effects of plastics and dissuade them from using them.
The College encourages all the departments to not use any form of plastics during seminars and other events. In the recent past, a plastic free campaign was launched in the campus. In the campus important sign boards like ‘Do not Litter’, ‘Use dustbins’ etc are displayed at strategic locations. Dustbins with segregated facilities are also placed in the campus.
