In order to create awareness for pollution free Deepawali, Air Falcon team interacted with the students. Some facts were shared with them to make them aware as to how much a cracker pollutes air. Students took pledge to celebrate a Pollution Free Deepawali and voluntarily came forward to propagate the message in writing to at least five more people. Through this drive about 1600 people joined the movement within two days.
