PLASTIC WASTE CLEANING
An estimated 8 million tonnes of plastic is yearly released into the ocean, leading to degradation of marine habitat which eventually affects aquatic organisms. Indiscriminate disposal of plastics on land and open air burning can lead to the release of toxic chemicals into the air causing public health hazards. There is a minimal or no awareness among the individuals over the impacts of plastic waste. On considering this problem we engaged two workers in Road side plastic waste cleaning around the outskirts of Kalapatti Coimbatore. Our company provided them electric vehicle to carry the wastes . Also our company employees and school students actively participated in plastic waste collection during weekends . We successfully collected around 1 ton of plastic wastes that in turn was finally handed over to the plastic recycling plant
