The aim of the events was to help eradicate the non-reusable waste from public spaces and pass on the knowledge to shopkeepers and people to choose better sustainable options that will help the community to reduce their waste.
There were ___ volunteers who joined the cleanup drive. Raj from the Indian Ploggers Army gave a brief on waste segregation and also, took an oath along with volunteers on 8R’s that will help a person to think before they choose a non-reusable product.
