Mysore/Mysuru: Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Mysuru Zone, will embark on a large-scale plastic clean-up activity in Mysuru on June 4 to celebrate World Environment Day. The initiative aims to engage citizens and raise awareness about the harmful effects of plastic pollution and promote a cleaner and healthier environment for the community through collective effort to clean up the area in and around Ring Road in Mysuru.
CII Mysuru is organising two major initiatives — Ideathon competition with the concept of ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’ plastic to be conducted on June 3 and a Mega plastic clean-up drive from 7 am to 9 am on Sunday (June 4) at Mysuru Ring Road followed by Awareness Session and Pledge from 9.30 am to 11 am at JK Grounds.
Volunteers from diverse backgrounds, including CII member company employees, students and faculty from various Colleges, and a few NGOs will unite to this clean up drive. All the collected plastic waste will go to zero waste segregation and recycling units.
By organising this event, CII aims to create a cleaner and greener Mysuru that is free from plastic pollution, aiming to educate and inspire individuals through educational sessions and insightful talks delivered by local experts and environmental activists to rethink their plastic consumption habits, waste management techniques, recycling, reusing solutions and take proactive steps towards a sustainable alternative to single use plastic for an eco-friendly future.
CII hopes #BeatPlasticPollution #Cleammysuru event will serve as a catalyst for long-term change and inspire individuals and businesses to adopt sustainable practices.
CII has in a press release invited all Colleges and Organisations of Mysuru to join hands in this noble cause. To register as volunteer organisation and select an area for clearing plastic, contact Kiran on Mob: 9844785965 or [email protected].
