The solution for reducing our garbage footprint starts at our own home - source segregation is the first step. Meet a few families who have turned their households in zero waste homes. CTC is planning to conduct a number of workshops post June 8th on source segregation, composting and other eco-friendly practices.

Our Chennai Mayor Saidai Duraisamy has kindly accepted to inaugurate the Chennai Coastal Cleanup on June 8th. He has been very supportive towards our cause in previous years and been an active listener to the learnings from our mega cleanup:

Everyother day new companies, NGOs and schools are joining our ever growing green army:
