Turning The Tide Against Plastic Pollution


The announcement of the campaign titled ‘Turning the Tide’ against plastic pollution was organized on Wednesday, 28th November 2018, in Mumbai. The campaign is aimed at creating awareness, inspiring discussions and involving the Dawoodi Bohra community in cleaning beaches and actively contributing to turning the tide on plastic pollution.

After becoming synonymous with the world's largest beach clean-up project in Versova, Afroz Shah has set out his latest endeavor to clean up the Dana Paani Beach at Malad and rejuvenate Mithi River, which has turned into a sewage over the years. Mr Shah is not only cleaning Mithi River, but also going door to door and educating people – living on the banks of the river–on how to generate circular economy by effectively handling garbage.

Dawoodi Bohra community members from Mumbai and Marol Jamiat join Mr Shah at Dana Paani Beach and Mithi River, Powai, every weekend to volunteer in cleaning these locations. Here are some pictures from the Beach Cleanup Drive.
