12000 kg Footwear on 200 m Beach Stretch: Times of India, Mangaluru – 13th June 2020

Concerned about the environmental impact of the rise in plastic waste at Kodi beach, a few like-minded people from Kundapura led by Bharat Bangera got together in 2018, to initiate the Clean Kundapura Project (CKP). Along with a group of local volunteers, CKP organizes regular beach cleaning drives on weekends with the main objective of promoting awareness among visitors to keep our beaches clean.
