Meet The Swachh Warriors Working Towards Making India Clean And Healthy
In this episode, we showcase the work done by swachhagrahis (foot soldiers of Swachh Bharat Mission) who are trying to make a difference in their own way. Pallavi Utagi and her group of mothers from Mumbai are hoping that Indians will chose reusable cloth diapers instead of disposable ones which are non-biodegradable and polluting our landfills and choking our waterbodies. Sumit Pandit from Aurangabad is a barber with a mission who is incentivising people with free haircuts and beard trimmings if they construct toilets in their homes. Fashion business being the second biggest water polluter in the world, Delhi-based Meenakshi Sharma is turning waste material into useful products and saving 200 kilos of waste every month adding to the ever-growing garbage pile. Pune-based, Ram Das Mane is building affordable toilets in two hours by recycling thermocol scrap coated with cement.
