Plastic waste collection and awareness rally at Panvel.

Hello friends, I am back again with another Green event that happened at CUF Nagar, Panvel, Navi Mumbai. This time it was a bit different from the previous one. I and the green warrior had participated in the rally which was organized by Citizens Unity Forum (CUF), Panvel and S. R. Joshi Memorial Trust operated Subodh Nirmal Abhiyan, a plastic recycling project, Usarli, Panvel. The other organization who joined the rally were Nisarg Mitr, Rotary Club of Panvel Central, Rotract club of panvel central, Samvedana charitable trust, Jana Jagaruti Grahak Manch, Stri Mukti Sanghatna and Dr.Brimole Foundation.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has. – Margaret Mead

The rally was on a  large-scale from the previous one that was arranged here in Kharghar by Green Warriors. There were people from all age group, we all carried placards that had various slogans, we collected plastic waste from the streets, distributed pamphlets that informed about waste segregation and plastic recycling, also there was a special arrangement for megaphone that announced the motive of the rally and how it’s important for the people to wake up and help save the environment rather than being depended on the government.

It was great meeting people from all walks of life, who were not just enthusiastic but were doing great work in their own ways to save the environment. I will be making some Green Warriors post soon on these talks that we had.

We collected around 20 Kg of plastic waste and gave it for recycling at Subodh Nirmal Abhiyan (Recycling project), they convert the plastic waste into granules which they will be giving for road filling. The First time I had come to know about this I was happier than ever. And when I met Sunita Joshi the founder of the trust I was overwhelmed with Joy that such good people exist. I feel this way each time I meet a Green warrior. Lots of love and my respect to amazing people who are going out-of-the-way to give us Green options and making our Green living a possibility. Also, I am grateful to all those who joined the event and are ready to participate in Green all Green activity. We need to think beyond ourselves and our home in order to make Green living a common thing.
