About 40 members from I-Clean Nagpur cleaned the area around the walking track of Ambazari Lake this Sunday. There were many first timers on this day, who came for the event. The group could collect about twenty bags of garbage, including plastic bottles, sachets, etc. This is their 161st spot in the region.
The aim of the I-Clean movement is not only to clean dirty spots, but also to make people aware and make them contribute towards Swachhta in every possible way. With the aim of spreading the message of clean living to every Nagpurian, the I-Clean team also encourages people to use cloth bags for their daily shopping.
To fund their activities, each volunteer makes a minimum contribution of Rs 50 every month. Some voluntary contributions are also received from citizens at each spot. The clean-up drives have not only got support from the general public, but are also backed by NMC and KRML who actively participate in clean-up drives and support by providing necessary equipment for removal and disposal of garbage.
It is the group’s vision that every city in India should have an I-Clean team and each citizen should follow the cleanliness regime.
With I-clean, it is ‘I’ before ‘You’. It is in the name – I should do it rather than asking you to do it.
The group has made an appeal to all the like-minded people of Nagpur to join them in their zest for cleaning and beautifying the city. People of all ages and vocations can voluntarily be a part of these efforts. The volunteers of the NGO have urged the citizens to be a part of this selfless group that is making efforts to make Nagpur a clean and a smart city.
