It was an informative and eye opening experience where they got to see how the mangrove ecosystem is getting degraded by human activities. The founder of Mangrove Marshalls, Mr. Rohit Malhotra, took students around the venue to show the extent of pollution and explained about various pollutants. He has been working for this cause since 2018 and supported by a team of volunteers from Bajaj Electricals Ltd.
Students were surprised to see the things that were washed ashore by the sea – idols, pens, diapers, pieces of furniture, school bags and of course plastic bags. We sincerely hope that this experience triggers the thought process and makes them understand the need for volunteering in such drives.
People like Mr. Rohit Malhotra are blazing new trails towards a more verdant future. Our current way of living disrupts the working of the natural ecosystems that sustains us. Considering we are 8 billion people in the world – how we manage our lifestyle, the choices we make are going to shape our future and that of our planet and it all begins from each of us contributing everyday in every small way!
