Last weekend team CCC8 landed at Nochikuppam and left behind a colorful message to the local community of 600 fisherman's families who implemented source segregation during last years' Chennai Coastal Cleanup/7.




Various creative designs are being conceived to carry our message of sustainability to the general public through various walls in the city:

Cycling for CCC

Green momentum spreading out everywhere Team Chennai Coastal Cleanup rode with the Mongrels & WCCG cycling groups and we had a good interactive session at the end of road race by Madras Racing Circuit about effects of one time use plastics and the need to start Reduce / Reuse / Recycle our waste to save our planet from garbage footprint. Briefing about the Chennai Coastal Cleanup 8 by Chennai Trekking Club scheduled on 18th June 2017.
No Plastic Challenge- Not just a challenge, but a lifestyle

The Social Media are flooded by selfies of numerable green warriors who show creative ways to eliminate the use of Single Use plastics in our daily lives in order to significantly reduce our garbage footprint. Are you ready to join them?



Plastic, is the biggest foe. No matter how we try to eliminate it, it rears its ugly head in every size, shape and form possible. Its a very difficult task to avoid it completely from our lives, but we can definitely be less dependant on it, show that we are not slaves to it.

The No Plastic Challenge from CTC, as part of Chennai Coastal Cleanup, is an excellent opportunity for anyone to get started on an earth and environment conscious journey and discover more about how to make one’s life a little less plastic-y.

As for me, I take up the no plastic motto quite seriously (sometimes fanatically) in my everyday life. Like the title of this note, to me, its not only a challenge of 5 days but a lifestyle that my family and I have been following for the past many years (in fact, we were segregating plastics, recycling and composting even before my stint at CTC began).And through this note (maybe a bit long but bear with me!), I’d like to share some of the things I have been doing at home and outside, to make my world a cleaner, greener one.

As always - REDUCE, REUSE AND RECYCLE.



Engaging Communities

Our volunteers continued their tireless efforts to restore the banks of the Adyar Poonga as part of #MissionGreenSrinivasapuram - a project to implement source segregation among the 20 thousand residents in order to create a 2nd zero-waste community along our coastline:

Distribution of 2Bin1Bag.in kits at Srinivasapuram enabling residents to start source segregating their waste

Around 200+ Kolams captured !!! Sharing some here ❤❤❤ Not only it made the whole Srinivasapuram clean & colorful !!! It made the every shy residents to step out of their homes to interact with us 😊😊

A sad reality that the modern technology and the education system has taught you only to make money. 220 deer deaths has been recorded at the IIT Madras campus due to huge quantity of plastic in the waste.
