Clearing the coast

With a vision to make a change, Dreamsketchers organised The Clean Beach Project at Calangute beach. The main goal of The Clean Beach Project is to help restore the beaches of Goa.   

The drive witnessed a large number of volunteers coming together in a bid to create a cleaner Goa. Glass bottles, hookah filters, shoes and bottle caps and more were found in plenty. A total of 85 plus bags of garbage were collected by the volunteers.

Head of design at Dreamsketchers, Jonas D’Souza said: “The Clean Beach Project started off with a group of youngsters coming together to clean the beaches of Goa. However, with the response and awareness the event generated, it soon developed into an initiative with a lot of scope. We hope that this initiative gets people more actively involved in keeping our environment clean and green.”

The idea behind the initiative apart from creating awareness was to set it up as an umbrella initiative with locals as its employees, campaigners and activists.
