The Man Clearing 9,000 Tons of Trash From Mumbai’s Beaches

Published : 7/22/2018

Over three years ago, Versova beach in Mumbai was little more than a dumping ground for garbage and waste. After witnessing the devastating impact the refuse was having on the ocean, Afroz Shah decided to take matters into his own hands.

What started off as a single man’s mission to clean up his favorite childhood beach turned into the world’s largest beach cleanup initiative.

Shah and hundreds of volunteers have cleaned up over nine million kilograms of plastic and waste, with hopes to expand their initiative to other beaches in the future.
