He walks to stay trim, he picks up plastic on the way
B Gowtham, an artist from Villivakkam in Chennai is spearheading and driving the movement ‘Walk for Plastic’, that has branched out to a few districts in a brief time. Gowtham’s regular route covers Villivakkam, Anna Nagar, Choolaimedu, Padi and Valasaravakkam – a target of 4 km a day.
Gowtham, a city based artist began documenting his daily collection of plastic in social media, and that’s how “Walk for Plastic” initiative started.
The volunteers walking different routes help clear the misconceptions associated with recycling plastic waste.
The money collected through this initiative will be used for educating children of rag pickers.
