Bhavan's Gandhi Vidyashram prides itself on being a plastic free zone. Use of plastic has been curtailed and periodically teachers and students participate in cleanliness drives in and around the campus to rid the area of plastic waste.
Kodaikanal has been declared as PIastic-free zone and the school complies with these norms.
The school maintains a beautiful garden. Around 100 Shola trees have been planted this year and are being nurtured by the students. Tree plantation as part of GO GREEN campaign is an ongoing process at Bhavan's Gandhi Vidyashram.
Most of the buildings in school are built of stones with eco-friendly GI roofs. None of the buildings have concrete roofs, instead, there are composite roofs.
