Say No to Paper/Plastic Cups

Have you ordered your personalized CTC #ChennaiCoastalCleanup mug yet to eliminate the use of paper/plastic cups in your daily routine? The average lifespan of a cup is just a few minutes before it adds to our ever growing garbage footprint. If not yet, get it now.


Photo shoots, video shoots, mock cleanups are ongoing in preparation of news promos and articles to carry our message across the city:


After the cleanup on Sunday morning don't miss out to collect your terracotta CCC6 cup with your beach zone coordinator. The mug is sponsored by Organic Green Cafe T Nagar:
