The '25-Tonne Plastic' campaign (25,000 kgs of plastic) is a part of the ongoing 'Say NO to Plastic' initiative.
This campaign was launched by BSG Chairperson Mr Vishesh Gupta on July 28, 2023, in the 15th BSG for SDG meeting in Delhi.
This campaign aims to make a positive impact on our environment by addressing the issue of plastic pollution through urging the members of the community to adopt ‘Sustainable Human Behaviour’.
Through this campaign, we can safeguard our precious planet Earth from the detrimental impacts of plastic pollution by working together as a community. This effort is essential not only for our personal well-being but also to secure a healthier environment for generations to come.
This campaign includes five steps, also known as the SE-WA-DE-CO-RE steps:
SEgregating the plastic waste responsibly at home by BSG members (at least 1kg by each participant).
WAshing the plastic waste at home by BSG members (only in case any soiled plastic needs cleaning).
DEpositing plastic to the collection centre by BSG members.
COllecting clean plastic waste by recycling vans.
REcycling 25,000 kilograms of plastic waste at recycling centres. To take part in this campaign, every BSG district in Delhi-NCR is encouraged to designate a District Plastic Coordinator (DPC).
