Associated Cause

Chennai is suffering from an every growing garbage footprint. More than 6000 tonnes of mixed garbage leave the city each day causing significant environmental and health impact. Chennai Trekking Club is actively working on creating a zero waste model community at Srinivasapuram on the estuary of the Adyar river as an example for the rest of the city to follow. In a first phase we are engaged in cleaning up this beautiful hamlet near the sea while at the same time creating awareness on the need to segregate waste. We are setting up a self sustainable waste management model to make the community waste free through door collection, recycling and setting up a compost yard. Trees will be planted to green the hamlet and compost will be used as manure to grow the same. Regular updates are posted on FB of this 1 year project covering 5000 homes.
