Student volunteers from 25 schools collected used ball pens from their neighbourhood and handed them over to the Swasthy team.
The pens collected on Saturday were handed over to Green Worms, a waste management venture in Kozhikode, to be recycled.
This triggered the Mission Ball Pen initiative.
The collected pens that weighed 106 kilograms were exhibited at the venue.
Used ball pens weighing more than a tonne were collected from all over the district as part of Mission Ball Pen, an initiative of Swasthy Foundation in Kozhikode, in an effort to reduce plastic waste and highlight the need to recycle it.
