100-Day Beach Cleanup Drive

 

India Youth For Society planned for 100 days from April 12, 2019 from Jodugullapalem to GITAM College, Beach Road, Visakhapatnam. On the first day, Shri M Harinarayan, Municipal Commissioner, has joined along with his staff. He worked for two hours and appreciated the team. Till date, we collected 9 tons of bottles and 800 kgs of plastics from this campaign. We recycle these plastics at our unit and probably, there would be 20 tons glass bottles and 4 tons of plastic in next month. Everyday it begins at 6 am and closes at 8 am. Sundays, we work till 10 a.m.

Observations: It is estimated that around 200 people visit this in the morning and 1100 visitors in the evening. There are no lights and no dust bins. There are six regular food vendors int he evening and one breakfast vendor in the morning. On an average 3 birthday-parties take place every day - two of them is cake party and one of them is beer party. On and average, one wedding shoot is taking place and 4 bikers take photos as it is a beautiful view point.

We spent 33600 till date for snacks, logistics, labours when it is required. We raised 11007/- rupees till date as contributions.
