Story

It's been 5 years since I started the Litter Free India movement leaving my corporate career and making the dream of a Litter Free India my full-time commitment. Since then I have mostly bootstrapped the mission. As any other movement requires a constant inflow of funds, we are looking for people to help us continue and grow this fight - to ultimately realize that dream during this lifetime. The pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns haven't been easy for anyone including me personally, but I aim to continue this fight. The funds we are raising will be utilized to drive our activities and campaigns in 2022.

What have we achieved in the last 5 years?
  • Over 500 cleanups in more than 100 cities across the country. Close to 200 tonnes of litter picked up
  • In 2019, I ran across the country covering 50 cities and 1000 KMs in 50 days while cleaning up
  • Government of India adopted our mission and close to 1crore Indians have participated to date
  • Over 100 clean up communities across the country
  • Cleanups and workshops with over 80 schools and colleges
  • In 2021, did a campaign Ride For Change where 500 people cycled cumulatively 26000 KMs to save 7 tonnes of carbon emissions and clean up 2 tonnes of litter across 5 North India cities
What are our plans for 2022?
  • Regularize our cleanups to weekly/monthly across every city possible. For this, we would need reusable gloves, trash bags as well as tie-ups with recycling agencies etc.
  • Plastic Upvaas Yatra - Walk Delhi to Mumbai covering 1400 KMs on foot creating awareness around the litter, single-use plastic and more sustainable alternatives
  • Ride for Change - As India celebrates it’s 75th year of independence, I plan to cycle 7500 KMs covering 150 cities and villages. The goal is to raise awareness for sustainable living/ transport to fight pollution and waste problem. This will be an unprecedented cycle ride and we would look to create records with it
  • Create cleanup clubs in all ~720 districts of India
 
Every bit raised will be used for the purpose of executing our daily/weekly activities, the massive nationwide campaigns and spreading awareness to bring about a change in the mindset of people about cleanliness. To become a Fitter and cleaner country thereby, giving our coming generations a better future. Help us in my mission by raising funds. Let's make this our combined dream to make India litter-free.  Thank you!!
