ACTION PLAN
===========

5am – 1000+ volunteers join at 11 assembly points across the city. Participants from other cities are most welcome to support this epic endeavor. (see below)

5-6am – Volunteers will be grouped in 13 Garbage Busting teams and move to 13 designated beach zones between Marina to Injambakkam lead by CTC organizers.

6am – Upon arrival at the beaches, distribute garbage bags, gloves and strategise about how the teams will work together to overcome this eco-challenge.

6-9am – Each of the teams will target a 1 km zone for cleanup. This challenge will be accomplished successfully even before the sun rises high above our heads.

9am – After restoring the natural beauty of our coastal line, we will take stock of the garbage collected and publish statistics to the media. Teams disperse for breakfast.

10am – Safe disposal of garbage by the authorities, dropping off volunteers back at their respective assembly points across the city
