Environmental Protection Awareness Campaigns titled ‘Say No To Plastic Bags at Tamil Nadu’ at Madras Christian College, awareness programme and free distribution of Cloth Bags


Chennai, 6th July 2019: Utkarsh Global Foundation, a non-profit organisation based in Mumbai, is collaborating with Tamil Nadu Government for the implementation of the historic and very much needed plastic ban in the state.

As a part of the collaboration, Utkarsh Global Foundation will be conducting awareness programmes in schools, colleges and public places, along with free distribution of cloth bags. We intend to cover 295 educational institutions in Tamil Nadu for the campaign.

Our first stop was at the prestigious Madras Christian College at Tambaram in Chennai held recently. We have conducted an awareness programme which included an inspiring and informative talk on the effects of plastic pollution on the environment and how it affects the health and survival of not just human beings but also animals, bothland and marine.

The aim is to spread awareness about plastic pollution amongst the young students with the hope that they will inspire and encourage others in using less plastic in their day-to-day use. These students are the citizens of tomorrow and we hope by educating them, we will be able to create a plastic-free, clean and healthier planet.

Utkarsh Global Foundation has distributed around 10,000 cloth bags to students to motivate them to shun use of plastic bags.

Utkarsh Global Foundation pleased to inform that TVS Tyres, one of India’s leading two and three- wheeler tyre manufacturer and Tamil Nadu’s pride, will be sponsored the event.
