A Cleanliness Drive in Forest Results in Two Truckloads of Plastic

Indian Masterminds Stories

Even after so many awareness campaigns and cleanliness drives, our natural resources are filled with plastics and garbage. Forests are also facing the consequences of our action. People go for jungle safari and leave their footprints in forest.

IFS officer Parveen Kaswan, who is currently posted in Buxa Tiger Reserve, started a cleanliness drive to collect the litter in the forest. Shockingly, he and his team collected two truckloads of plastic while covering 7 kilometres distance. Besides him and few volunteers, SP of Jalpaiguri also came for this drive.

The officer shared few pictures in his thread on X, writing, “Every second plastic piece thrown on the forest road is either a Chips or Kurkure packet.”

Highlighting the dangers of plastic when eaten by animals he further wrote, “These plastics are many times eaten by wild animals, and they die also. We have observed wild animal dung full of plastic. Big pieces. Leave aside issues of microplastics.”
