To celebrate International Coastal Clean-up Day 2021, United Way Mumbai conducted a Marine Litter Survey at 3 beaches in Mumbai i.e. Mahim Reti Bunder Beach, Mahim Beach near Hinduja Hospital and Dana Pani Beach, Malad in collaboration with National Centre for Coastal Research (NCCR). A total of 65 volunteers collected 1.42 tonnes of waste, segregated into different categories of plastic waste, wood, rubber, etc. Dustbins were distributed among the local shop owners at the beach & also an appeal board was installed. A report of the survey was shared with the NCCR to contribute as a part of their project.
