8,000 Volunteers Expected for India Coastal Cleanup

India’s largest socially-led cleaning initiative is happening in Chennai. The city is waging a war against plastic...6 years ago 150 CTC volunteers traveled to Tada, an ‘eco tourism’ spot and went deep inside the forest to restore the scenic Tada falls to its original natural beauty. 500 big bags with 2 tons of garbage including plastics and broken bottles were removed. An environmental awareness movement was born.

Now in its 6th year, their ambitious target for June 7th is to collect 50+ tons of garbage from 20+ km of the Chennai sea shore with 8000+ volunteers.
