Our Campaigns
REVOLT AGAINST PLASTIC
Ganga is the second-most polluting river in the world, spewing 115,000 tonnes of plastic each year. Plastic releases toxic chemicals into the air, sea and land, thus causing harm to our environment. Plastic contains dangerous chemicals like BPA that can cause diseases like cancer, obesity, hormonal imbalance, autism and many more. Moreover, the plastic waste that is created after disposal causes birds, marine life and other animals to choke on plastic debris. It is high time that we get rid of all the one time use plastic and use Eco-friendly substitutes of plastic such as metal, clay and glass. Join our movement to revolt against plastic.

PARKLETS
Parklet – an initiative to regain our public spaces! Take back some space from cars and return it to people. This is an easy way to make our cities more livable. Watch the video to learn how to make parklets.
CARFREE CITIES

Carfree cities greatly reduce petroleum dependency, air pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, automobile crashes, noise pollution, and traffic congestion.
