On the occasion of World Environment Day(June 5), Abhyuday, IIT Bombay successfully conducted the Powai Lake Mega Cleanup Campaign in association with Nisarg Swasthya Sansthan which was followed by the plantation drive on the banks of the Lake. 400+ Volunteers actively participated to become a part of the change.
The Campaign began with the Volunteers taking a pledge for cleanliness and to create a healthier Environment. The Volunteers then spread out along a stretch of 1.5 kilometres along the banks of the lake in 6 different groups and collected around 1.5 tonnes of solid waste including plastics and other materials that pollute the lake. Volunteers were really supportive of the campaign, and through their efforts, we have set an example to people about the responsibility of cleaning our lake and protecting the environment from being destroyed.
