How a Tourist Can Become a Part of Clean India Campaign?
Last Updated: July 25, 2018

Swach Bharat Abhiyan or Clean India Campaign launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has gone viral with lots of distinguished personalities from Sachin Tendulkar to Amitabh Bachchan praising this effort. Not only coveted Indians, common ones are also partaking in it by saying no to littering. People from different communities are standing shoulder to shoulder to make this campaign a success and change the impression of India on rest of the world. But you find it hard to be part of this campaign because you are a traveler and thus don’t have much time. Well, you still can be a part of this campaign by doing following things:

Don’t litter Here and There


Throw garbage in the dustbin. It is as simple as that. If you don’t have a dustbin around you, then keep those empty wrappers in your pocket and throw them when you find a dustbin.

Avoid Polythene Bags


Polythene takes hundreds of years to decompose. Use bags made of paper or other biodegradable material

Don’t Spit/Urinate Anywhere


Never spit. It makes the area unhygienic. And you don’t have to urinate in public. Look for public washroom and relieve yourself there.

Don’t Write on the Walls of Monuments


Monuments are the most precious treasures of our nation. Don’t write on their walls and stop others too.

Inform Government Authority About unclean/Unhygienic Places

Click pictures of that unclean/unhygienic place and send it to concerned authority.

Wear a t-shirt with ‘Clean India’ slogan


This way, it is easier to express that you are committed to ‘Clean India’ initiative. And there are strong chances that other tourists will imitate this act.

Use Local Trains/ Battery Operated Vehicles or Clean Fuels Vehicles as mode of transportation


Instead of hiring a taxi, use those modes of transportation that don’t cause pollution.

If Possible, Donate to NGO’s Working for ‘Clean India’ Campaign

: donate-for-clean-india

In case your inner voice tell you to do more for ‘Clean India Campaign’, then you can always donate to any of the NGOs associated with this cause.

Pass the Message to Other Tourists


As a tourist, you can spend the message among other tourists to not drop litter here and there.

Stay at Eco-Friendly Hotels


Before checking in any hotel, make sure that it is following eco-friendly norms of the hospitality industry.

Write About It:


In case you are maintaining a personal blog, then do write about ‘Clean India’ campaign. It will prompt your followers to be a part of this drive and do their bit to promote cleanliness.
