About

Do-No Trash is a collective of citizens and organisations committed to adopting sustainable living practises and promoting a healthy plastic-free life. The movement, which started from Dehradun, is now spreading to other parts of India.

We are a volunteer-run community open to anybody who is concerned about the environment and is in a quest to to live a sustainable life. Our core team consists of scientists, designers and communicators, who work full time to research and produce content that is suitable and useful to address shifts towards sustainable lifestyles among different segments of society.

We hope to inform and inspire people to adopt sustainable approaches in their own lives by acting responsibly towards the environment and also by creating greater awareness about local issues related to garbage disposal, plastic usage and trash burning through our community engagement programmes.
