Dadar Chowpatty, also known as Chaityabhoomi beach is a popular tourist destination. The high number of footfall make cleanliness at the beach a major challenge for MCGM.

Through Project Clean Shores Mumbai, United Way Mumbai strives to enhance the overall state of cleanliness and waste management at the shores of Mumbai through public-private partnership.



Every day, tonnes of plastic and other waste are disposed of into our water bodies. The litter not only spoils the scenery but is harmful to the natural habitat, including people and wildlife. Additionally, the debris thrown into marine bodies can last a very long time, affecting the marine life for years to come.
