Liberating Chennai’s Bottled Up Coastline

Beaches are not just vast stretches of sands, they’re a habitat! They ain’t a dustbin, ocean ain’t a landfill. Every bottle, plastic bag, straw, tampon, Plaster of Paris Idol we dump is killing a turtle, dugong, whale and countless fish.

E.F.I in collaboration with the Greater Chennai Corporation and the HCL Foundation have taken on the task of reviving Chennai’s coastlines!

On 9th November 2020 (Monday), a day-long labour-based cleanup was conducted to clear glass bottles found in the beach. Close to 2000 glass bottles were removed from the beach!

We thank all those who supported us in this effort!
