Since inception of U Turn Foundation we have had strong aversion to polythene usage because of it’s never ending non degradable life span and the irreversible damage it is inflicting on earth and on life that earth sustains. We have been cleaning roadsides of non-degradable waste, have set up dustbins, requested the municipal board for regular cleaning of bins, talking to people about the ill-effects of polythene. Appreciating the model of “DVWM” we worked alongside the municipal board, health department and Doon valley waste management to improve its effectiveness by advising / suggesting measures based on our door to door campaigns for proper segregation of garbage. Our findings and reports were incorporated by DVWM.
The Foundation strongly pursues the idea of a polythene free Dehradun.
