Women roll up sleeves for clean neighbourhood

INDORE: These women call themselves ‘Green Cops’ and appeal other women to join hands with them to protect the environment.

Green Cops is a group a 20 women of Anoop Nagar who have come together to take up the cause of cleanliness and waste management in their locality. The group has recently turned a wasteland in their locality into a green land by planting saplings.

Yamini Verma, an environmentalist and a member of Green Cops, said, “We had been watching many empty plots slowly turning into dumping ground emitting foul smell and causing diseases. Therefore women including homemakers and working professionals of the locality, decided to form a group on August 15.”

The women started with organizing small plantation events in the area. “We started moving home to home and appealing people not to throw garbage at public places,” she said.

The women gradually started spreading the awareness by educating others not to throw waste on streets and open plots. Slowly others joined in and the initiative took off. On October 2, the Green Cops organized a Swachhta Rally.

Another group member and a homemaker Ila Bhargava said, “Initially it was embarrassing knocking doors and asking people whether they throw garbage in any particular plot. Some even insulted us. But we gathered courage gradually and started cleaning up the plots that had turned into garbage land by ourselves.”

The green cops has done plantation on four plots in their residential area. “Last week we had decided to clean up at least three plots and start with the plantation drive. We had also installed banners and signages outside which read ‘Do not throw garbage.’ We also installed CCTVs to keep a check,” said Ashu Sharma of the group.

Vibha Moghe said, “This was just the beginning of our mission toward total cleanliness. One after another we will take up projects and convert the waste dumping corners and plots in our locality into green spaces. Till date we have completed four such projects.”

Gayatri Singh said, “Our next mission is discourage use of polythene bags in our area and local markets and encourage citizens to instead use recyclable bags. We also plan to launch a Facebook page to encourage people to join our mission and carry out the same in their locality.”
