THE GREEN CAUSE: “Our society must move from ego-system to eco-system economics. This requires that we shift from ego-system silos to eco-system awareness that considers others and includes  the whole.”

Garbage is one of the most challenging factors that pollute the environment everywhere. Garbage on foothills is being dumped for ages but attention of the society has been drawn recently towards garbage on the mountains, especially Himalayas. Our projects are focused on conducting activities and clean-up of the mess that has been accumulated on all the places primarily the Foothills of Himalayas. We organize special activities, mass clean-ups and events in the community and schools to create the awareness.
