‘SAY NO TO PLASTICS’ was the alarming phrase that we have come across since this new year 2019. Though the fact of plastics ban is genuine, none  of us took courage to stand for the cause. So, What is the alternative for this? is the question that arose in our minds. Hence, the Department of Fashion Technology came up with this alternative solution using the technique of Macrame Knotting. To create an awareness among the public about these reusable cotton rope bags, around 500 people (250 teams across all departments of BIT) gathered in the BIT auditorium on 07.09.2019 to make 200 bags and attempt a record under  the title ‘Maximum Handcrafted Snug Bags Made using Macrame Knots. Mr.Vivek Nair, Adjudicator – India Book of Records assessed and declared the record attempt during the felicitation  ceremony. The department has set a record by doing 200 bags .Our Principal Dr.C.Palanisamy, Dean - PDS Dr.K Sivakumar, Dean- TSD Dr.P.Thangaraj and Dr.K.Saravanan HoD FT witnessed the event and were present during the felicitation.
