    The Mumbai Plastic Recyclothon

    Recycling takes little effort on your part, to create a big difference in the world around us

    Did you know that in Deonar, which is just a few kilometers away from wherever you live, the waste –including the plastic waste you generate–is now as high as an 18 storey structure?

    Imagine an area of 132 hectares and 18 storeys high.

    YOU can change that. With Project Mumbai.

    Three years ago Project Mumbai launched THE MUMBAI PLASTIC RECYCLOTHON.

    It is a citizen led initiative where people can donate their plastic waste. Project Mumbai volunteers will pick it up free of cost from the closest drop location to your house.
    We will recycle this and convert this into benches, pencil boxes, garbage bins and other amenities for YOU. Even as we speak, hundreds of thousands of citizens have joined this movement to reduce plastic waste from their homes. Donate whatever they can so that our city becomes a better place to live.
    Do you know that YOUR plastic waste is now a bench in a neighbourhood garden, helping the elderly sit and enjoy some peace time.

    What are you waiting for?

    Register for the Mumbai Plastic Recyclothon.

    Inspire others to do the same.

    By the way, do you know the Plastic Recyclothon that you will soon be part of, is now in the LIMCA BOOK OF RECORDS 2020 edition as the largest citizen led initiative to recycle plastic?

    Welcome to the team of record breaks.

    Impact of the initiative

    Behavioral change – One of the most positive and major impacts of this action based initiative was a change in the behavior and attitude of people in Mumbai. Mumbaikars across residential complexes, offices and schools, realized the necessity to reduce plastic consumption which has been causing immense harm. We got innumerable messages from people assuring us of their reduced/complete stoppage of plastic consumption in their homes as much as possible.

    Rejection/Refusal – Across India, one of the largest users of plastic has been noticed in the retail industry which has caused immense harm to the environment. For example, grocers and vegetable vendors have been using plastic since decades for distribution of their products. Due to The Plastic Recyclothon, we received various calls from people across geographies telling us about how they ensured that their local vendors stopped providing grocery or vegetables in plastic bags.

     Demonstrated recycling – Project Mumbai has chosen a unique action oriented manner for building people’s trust and belief into what and how plastic can be recycled. By building trust through recycling and by creating this as a collaborative mechanism, we brought in recyclers who helped collect and segregate the plastic which was subsequently recycled into amenities for the city. In this case, specifically, benches are being made which will be placed in open spaces of Mumbai, especially parks and gardens.

    The Plastic Recyclothon: Ek Baar Phir is specifically an initiative to inculcate a positive behavioural change in terms of reducing plastic waste from our daily use. Hence, we expect support from citizens in donating and giving away only plastic waste. NOTHING ELSE, or no other form of waste including broken chairs, sofas, household garbage or wet waste.
    The plastic that we collect shall be recycled to creating benches and other public use amenities.
    Plogging: What is Plogging. Plogging is picking up plastic as you jog. You can register as a plogger and collect plastic as you go for your morning walk/go to the office/for your tuitions/to buy vegetables/ or anytime you step out. Collect the plastic waste and add it to your waste collection. Can we make Mumbai the city of Ploggers and make Mumbai Plastic waste-free?
    Beginning now, as groups of individuals or individuals, institutions etc start collecting the plastic waste from your home, work place and surroundings. Reduce the clutter and collate it at any safe location.
