Plastic Heist in Noida
Binge-watching is one of the most popular things we do now, and I am sure you must’ve binged-watched Money Heist on Netflix. Taking the theme from the web series and highlighting the recent single-use plastic ban by the government, HCL Foundation’s Clean Noida project initiated a plastic heist in Noida on May 7. As a result, a total of 200 kg of single-use plastic was ‘stolen’ from the streets of Noida by the volunteers. This initiative was followed by launching a Plastic Exchange Mobile Van to manage plastic waste. Through the mobile van HCL Foundation supported RACE (Reduction, Awareness, Circular (solutions), and (mass) Engagement), a statewide initiative by the Government of Uttar Pradesh aimed at making the state single-use plastic-free.
