5000 joined to wipe out the trash
On this Environment day, Mumbai joined their hands together to wipe out pollution and trashes from beaches, water bodies and mangroves.
Although the Maximum City does have many volunteer groups engaged in cleaning domestic waste across these locations at their convenience, many of them have come together under the Jallosh-Clean Coasts initiative led by Project Mumbai, a non-profit.
This is the first kind of program which has wide participation from many groups, school and college students, state agencies and various corporations.
Project Mumbai brought all of the teams together on this Environment day. They believe in creating social transformation through scale. A bigger sound will compel the government to take notice. Volunteers had their gloves, hand tool and various tools for making the beach clean.
The maximum amount of trash was collected and dispatched from Dana Pani beach and Mithi River. Over 7,000kg trash, mostly plastic was removed from nine beach fronts – Dana Pani beach in Malad, Chimbai in Bandra, Versova, Juhu, Girgaum, Dadar, Mahim, Cuffe Parade, and Carter Road — and 8,000kg trash was removed from Mithi and Poisar rivers on Saturday and Sunday.
