Wall Paintings
“What we are giving to the nature will come back to us through the ecosystem”. This message was beautifully visualized by students of Anna University School of Architecture and Planning and members of Chennai Trekking Club on the campus public wall at Kotturpuram as part of the 8th year edition of the Chennai Coastal Cleanup. We can only be as healthy as the environment we live in!

Awareness through Cycling
Large turnout for our Chennai Coastal Cleanup/8 awareness cycle ride from Probikers to Kelambakkam towards a greener plastic free future. Join us next Sunday June 18th for South India’s largest beach clean up involving 150 organizations and 6000 volunteers removing 50 tonnes of garbage from 20km of beaches.
Illustrating our affinity to use and throw plastics Dhvinay PV carried 1 month worth of plastic consumption on his cycle during our Chennai Coastal Cleanup/8 awareness ride yesterday. All of which ends up in our eco-system sickening our environment and ourselves. A wake up call for all of us to #reduce #recycle #reuse.
What Goes Around Comes Around
Community Engagement – Neelangarai Kuppam
The kids of Chinna Neelankarai kuppam primary school were enthralled to receive their “Environmental Champion” certificates and saplings after showcasing their drawing skills and knowledge on environment by the Chennai Coastal Cleanup and Namma Beach, Namma Chennai. Planting seeds of a green future in young minds.

Is Our Convenience worth their Extinction?
Restoring the banks of the Adyar River – Theosophical Society
Another 250kg of garbage recovered by 40 volunteers from the mouth of the Adyar river. Glass bottles, thermocol packaging, plastics, chapals. Anything we conveniently throw away ends up in our beautiful rivers and oceans. Change has to start from all of us!

#NoPlasticChallenge
Plastics are not a rare sight anymore. We live right in between the pile of plastics. We start off the day with a plastic tooth-brush and sign-off probably by switching on the AC using a plastic remote. Can we dare to avoid plastics in our day to day life, in order to protect our environment and lead a healthy life? Take the NPC challenge!
BBC – 81-year-old inspiring a nation to recycle
An 81-year-old who set up an all-woman rubbish collection team in her village in Lebanon now has a stream of visitors asking how she did it. For nine months in 2015 and 2016 rubbish piled up on the streets of the capital, Beirut, and even now a lack of landfill sites means some of the city’s waste is being thrown in the sea. Zeinab Mokalled has shown that when government fails, do-it-yourself local initiatives can work.
