Chennai is a coastal city in the south east part of India with a population of about 7 million. Beach outings are very common, as a result, creates large mounds of trash mainly of plastic.

With the help of this project, the NBNC will be able to accomplish the following.

1. Hand gloves and Bags for trash pickup

2. Set up Concrete Bins and trash liners

3. Planting trees and landscaping
