PLEXCONCIL and GREENMYNA Partner together for a Successful Inaugural Beach Clean-Up Drive

May 13th, 2024: PLEXCONCIL, India’s apex trade body for plastics exports, successfully concluded its inaugural beach clean-up drive in collaboration with Greenmyna, a leading clean energy solutions advocate. The event, held on May 12th, 2024, at Carter Road, Bandra, drew 150 volunteers rallying together to combat plastic pollution and preserve the coastal environment.

The beach clean-up drive united a diverse group of participants, including PLEXCONCIL COA Members from the Western region, council officials, students from the Institute of Chemical Technology, Indian Institute of Technology, Indian Plastic Institute, Mumbai and other colleges, as well as environmentally conscious citizens. Together, they collected and disposed of significant amounts of plastic waste, restoring the pristine condition of the shoreline.

“We are overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and dedication displayed by our volunteers,” said Mr. Sribash Dasmohapatra, Executive Director of PLEXCONCIL. “The success of this event underscores the importance of collective action in preserving our environment and combating plastic pollution.”

“Plastic is an essential and very important material that is used in so many different products we use daily. For a cleaner planet and ocean, all we need to do is ensure we segregate our waste, dispose of our plastic responsibly, and avoid unnecessary single-use plastic in our daily lives.” Ashwin Malwade, co-founder of Greenmyna, added. 

Dhruv Sayani, Convener-PLEXCONNECT 2024 and COA Member, PLEXCONCIL, highlighted the importance of the event, saying, “While plastics offer numerous benefits, it is crucial to address the issue of single-use plastics and promote recyclability and sustainability in the industry. This beach clean-up drive is a step towards raising awareness and inspiring others to take action.”

Simple Kaul and Rajat Bedi, who lent their support to the initiative, commended the efforts of PLEXCONCIL and Greenmyna, stating, “We are delighted to have been a part of this impactful event. Initiatives like these are vital in protecting our oceans and marine life, and we applaud the organizers and volunteers for their dedication.”

“We are excited to organize this Beach Clean-Up Drive in collaboration with our partners and volunteers”, said Mr. Sribash Dasmohapatra, Executive Director of Plexconcil. “The beach clean-up drive represents PLEXCONCIL’s ongoing commitment to environmental responsibility. By mobilizing our resources and engaging our community, we aim to lead by example and inspire others to take action in protecting our planet.”

As the event drew to a close, PLEXCONCIL and Greenmyna extended their gratitude to all the volunteers and participants, reaffirming their dedication to organizing more such initiatives in the future. The collaborative efforts have set a benchmark for industry-led efforts to combat plastic pollution and promote a cleaner, greener, and more sustainable future.
