    As long as man used nature to cater his needs there was no problem, but when his attention and attitude turned towards attaining more economic wealth and comfort. The earth has started to loose its comfort ability and compatibility to the process of self-healing and regeneration. Man‟s activities nowadays have created the doubt of sustainability of the earth. All these problems could be solved only when man starts loving his environment and try to protect it. This becomes possible only if he has proper environmental awareness towards eco-friendly attitude and starts practicing eco-friendly behavior.

This study seeks to focus on the eco-friendly attitude of college youth on their awareness and practice level.

   In this paper, we revisit the multi-item economic order quantity inventory model (MI-EOQ) under uncertainty, arbitrariness and randomness. To solve such a problem, we use the signed distance ranking function methodology. In our approach, we quantify the model parameters in the MI-EOQ inventory model by fuzzy distribution function rather than random variables. Numerical examples are provided towards the end of the paper to illustrate the salient point in the model formulation. The proposed methodology to the MIEOQ inventory model can be easily extended to other more complex inventory models whose models parameters cannot be obtained precisely
