Bhoomithrasena Club is formed with support from Directorate of Environment &Climate Change, Government of Kerala. It aims at encouraging students to appreciate the environment and to react positively to environmental issues. The club organizes talks, seminars, essay competitions etc. on current environmental problems. The other activities include planting trees in the college campus, maintaining the trees and cleaning the campus. The club installed a biogas plant for the college canteen. Awareness is made among the students to keep the classroom and campus clean.
On the World Environment Day, College Principal Dr S Ayoob planted a ‘Neem’ sapling in the college campus and exhorted students and teachers to plant and preserve as many trees as possible.

The Bhoomithrasena club took initiative in establishing a biogas plant in the college campus to aid for the disposal of organic wastes generated in the college canteen. The biogas obtained from this plant is used for cooking in the college canteen itself, thereby reducing the usage of any fossil fuels.
Department of Environment and climate Change has selected our BMC as one of the best among other four in Kollam District. As part of this, a letter of understanding has been signed by WWF and our college and thereby engaging BMC with ECHO of WWF India’s National Volunteer Engagement Programme.
Echo is a youth volunteering program that aims to create Environment Conservation Heroes in colleges across the country through bridging the gap between environmental awareness and conservation action. A number of students from each college will work on a conservation action project under a yearly theme and help resolve environmental issues in their college/community/city. At the end of the academic year, a national level summit will be organized, in which each college will showcase their conservation action projects and the impact made. Through innovative ideas and enthusiastic participation, the youth can create a movement to create positive change for the environment.
