Plastic Tide Turners Challenge

Why this Challenge?

  • We all are living in an age of plastics. Plastics certainly have advantages of being light weight, long-lasting and relatively inexpensive. Unfortunately, they also bring problems to our world, as they cannot degrade and stay on earth for countless years.
  • Thus plastics are now present in every habitat and every nook and corner of the planet’s environment - in the streets and landfills of cities and villages, remnants of plastic bags get eaten by animals, micro plastics entering into our food chain and so on.



Who can participate?

In the pilot phase of the challenge, we are inviting schools and colleges from four States - Gujarat, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal to take part in this challenge.

  • School students age between 13 to 17 years
