In its continuous efforts to give back to the society, Aakash BYJU’S, the national leader in test preparation services, today kickstarted its “Junk the Plastic” campaign at the Miramar Beach in Panaji by removing unwanted plastic waste from the famous beach in the city, stated a press release.
Plastic waste today is a major environmental hazard, more so for a place like Miramar, which sees an influx of thousands of visitors each day. The campaign intends to spread awareness about the effect the use of plastic has on the environment and how this can be mitigated by recycling wasted plastic into something useful.
The campaign began last week in Mumbai at the Juhu beach and this week the beach cleaning activity will be held in Panaji, Goa and Kozhikode, Kerala.
The initiative aims to instill behavioural change in the public while also inspiring young minds to recognize the importance of keeping the beaches clean through collective action.
Amit Singh Rathore, Regional Director, Aakash BYJU’S said:“At Aakash Byju’s we feel a responsibility to help develop our students to become model citizens of tomorrow apart from helping them achieve their academic aspirations. To that end, we are delighted to be part of the efforts to clean Goa and contribute to the upkeep of our wonderful state while helping our students develop a love of nature.”
Aakash BYJU’S intends to take this campaign to other coastal cities in India as well, in days to come.
