We all know it’s there – we can see it, smell it, feel it – the stench, the filth, the disgust, the garbage! India’s garbage generation stands at 0.2 to 0.6 kilograms of garbage per head per day. This figure, multiplied by our population that stands at 1.2 billion, well, is a huge number! We create it and we dump it. Why don’t we clean it? Because ‘it’s not mine, it’s theirs’!
The blame game gets us nowhere is what we realized, after passing through roads with endless piles of garbage. So we joined forces with Greenpeace and participated in the Clean Kachra Drive!
Clean Kachra Drive was organized on 1st November 2014 by Greenpeace. We joined them in cleaning the streets of KR Market, Bangalore.
It was a day worth remembering, as we worked as one, brooms in hand, smiles on our lips and masks covering our faces! We also received the opportunity to spread awareness on garbage segregation and safe disposal among the vendors.
The entire experience helped us realize our responsibility in making the city a better and cleaner place to live in. It also generated in us a renewed respect for all the people and groups engaged in ensuring our city’s cleanliness. We salute you for your dedication and commitment.
We’ve taken a pledge to do our bit to restore Bangalore its former glory. Join us in bringing back our beloved Garden City. Remember the trio – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! As Captain Planet once said, The Power Is Yours!
