Why we do Beach Cleanups
As all of us know in the past few decades we have depraved nature so badly. Nowadays whatever we are facing is just like the action reaction mechanisms of nature. Only humans are responsible for all kinds of pollution. Beaches need to be clean because whatever garbage dumping or any other plastic material which makes it dirty will get into the sea and it will affect the life of aquatic animals. It doesn't seem but have a moreover effect on them. Some of them unknowingly swallow such things which can take their life. Also beaches are sightseeing attractions for local tourists and foreign tourists too, if they are not cleaned up properly then it won't remain the same. So it is our responsibility to keep our beaches and surrounding clean.
What do we do ?
For Future India and Child Help Foundation started since January 2020 and till now we have cleaned beaches including Uttan Beach, Velankanni Beach, Gorai Beach, Manori Beach, Arnala Beach, Danapani Beach, Juhu Beach, Khardanda Beach with 15000+ volunteers for 144+ times. And removed approx. 600000+ kg of waste and plastic materials. Along with those cleanups we also save Mangroves .They perform important ecological functions like nutrient cycling, hydrological regime, coastal protection, fish-fauna production, etc. Mangroves act as shock absorbers. They reduce high tides and waves and help prevent soil erosion. They also provide livelihood opportunities to coastal communities.
What we want to do / Future planning
Our main target is to awake people about the side effects of plastic pollutions of sea and to protect the lives of aquatic animals. Instead of dumping plastic we must recycle and reuse it. Also we want to increase number of Mangroves to make beaches clean and blue. Many volunteers are participating in “For Future India” team.
