About 50 members from I-Clean Nagpur cleaned garbage from Sanjay Nagar near Ambazari, this Sunday. This is their 169th spot in the region. They could collect a huge lot of discarded material from the spot, including rusted tin sheets, plastic sachets, footwear, cloth, bottles, construction material, etc. The residents of Sanjay Nagar and adjoining localities accorded whole-hearted cooperation to the team, while working together to clean this area. The members appealed to all citizens, including passers-by, to stop littering this road, in the interest of cleanliness, hygiene and the environment.
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.
Age is no barrier for this group. They have volunteers ranging from 12 to 60+ year-olds who contribute in their own ways, towards the cleanliness and beautification of our city. To fund their activities, each volunteer makes a minimum contribution of ₹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. You can call on 8421930862 / 7743994550 to be a part of this selfless group that is making efforts to make Nagpur really a clean and smart city.
