New groups are joining our green army every day ready to clean sweep 15km of beaches on June 16th:
Still see any company or NGO missing in the list above then please pass on our event brochure and request them to join
We are planning to invade schools next week onward to maximize the youth joining our campaign
Segregation
This year’s Coastal Cleanup we will be segregating garbages in 4 major categories.
Target is to maximize recycling and minimize garbage moved to the dump yard
Those participating please get yourself familiar with the above 4 categories – volunteers will be split in 4 groups to collect each type of garbage separately
Kuppathotti will be joining hands with us to recycle maximum garbage
Organizers
A 100+ strong organizing team is preparing meticulously behind the scenes for the largest Cleanup operation in Chennai’s history.
Complimented by a 50+ member photography team which will be covering the cleanup in detail and of course reporters from The Hindu
