Location: From Rishikesh Nagar Nigam to Triveni Ghat, Rishikesh
Celebrating Gandhi Jayanti by Plogging for a cleaner Ganga!
To celebrate Gandhi Jayanti and mark the end of ‘Azaadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’, our team in collaboration with Rishikesh Nagar Nigam, Lions Club Divine, and NCC organized a plog run in Rishikesh.
What better way to sensitize people on keeping their city free from dumping of waste, than bringing together a women-led local club and an enthusiastic group of NCC cadets and to march across their city advocating Gandhiji’s vision of a clean and green India.
Walking from Nagar Nigam to Triveni Ghat under the pouring rain, we collected 65 kgs of dry waste during the plog run and spread the message across citizens of Rishikesh to start segregating waste at home and avoid littering in open spaces.
After the plog run, all NCC cadets along with members of the Lioness Club took a pledge to segregate their waste and reduce their plastic waste in Ganga. It was a very motivating and significant experience to see people of Rishikesh coming forward to speak up for Ganga and encourage others to become responsible citizens.
