BEAT PLASTIC POLLUTION PAINTING AT CARTER ROAD

A big aspect of our approach at the Bhamla Foundation is working bottom-up and engaging the youth. We believe it’s essential to educate our youth about being environmentally conscious as they will one day inherit the planet. In an awareness event, we had young volunteers paint the sidewalks of Carter Road with messages encouraging people to recycle and discard single-use plastic. This was part of our #beatplasticpollution campaign that culminated in a mega-event at the Amphitheater in Carter Road on June 5th.

Thank you gracy Singh Pooja Bhutt Shaan for supporting the cause #beatplasticpollution colouring the streets of Carter Road connecting the youth to discard and Recycle single-use plastic and making them involved in the Mega event on 5th June at Amphitheater Carter Road

CERTIFICATE OF APPLICATION TO BHAMLA FOUNDATION

The Bhamla Foundation has been working in environmental conservation in Maharashtra for nearly 20 years. During that time, we’ve dedicated our time to conserving and cleaning public spaces like beaches, spreading awareness about eco-friendly lifestyles, and waste management. We’ve worked on large-scale projects such as converting over 1 ton of waste to energy that powers all the street lamps in Pali, Mumbai. We’ve engaged with players from all walks of life ranging from politicians and celebrities –  who are in positions of influence from both a policy perspective but also as agents of change by raising awareness – to the youth, who will eventually inherit our beautiful country. 

It was a great honour to be recognised for this work by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Government of India. Dr Harsh Vardhan acknowledged our years of service with a Certificate of Appreciation on the occasion of World Environment Day, 2018, for our endeavour in taking the message of “Beat Plastic Pollution” and spreading the message of “Green Good Deeds” to the people across the country at Vigyan Bhawan, Delhi. We were thrilled to be a part of the Green Crusader Awards and are inspired to continue our work to save our planet.

As we continue to propagate the cause the of Environment #BhamlaFoundation #BeatPlasticpollution. With the efforts of our foundation Mumbaikar pledged for #GreenGanesha people from all walks of life came forward to support this initiative in bandra.

Each Ganesh Chaturthi, over 5 lakh kgs of toxic waste is immersed into various public water bodies just in Maharashtra. The amount of air, water, and noise pollution over the ten days of the festival has a big impact on the environment. As champions of environmental conservation and clean living, the Bhamla Foundation ran a drive to raise awareness around the issue. In our efforts to reduce the damage to our wonderful city, we got Mumbaikars from all walks of life to pledge ‘Green Ganesha’ – a pollution-free celebration.

SHRADDHA KAPOOR FOR WED

Congratulations to Pali Hill Residents Association & Asish Shelar along with the Bhamla Foundation for the successful inauguration of Bio Gas our collective efforts to launch First of its kind model WASTE TO ENERGY by YASASU GREEN organic recycle system in Mumbai the decentralised model for processing of organic fraction from the waste segregated by the residents of Pali Hill, creating a role model in “ZERO GARBAGE” from a total of 78 buildings and 23 bungalows. The by-product from this 1-ton system will generate power which will be utilized to run the street lights on Pali Hill. And our next agenda making Pali Hill plastic-free campaign of #BeatPlasticPollution #BhamlaFoundation

When working in environmental conservation, waste management is a crucial aspect. What if you were able to use waste to power streetlights? 

That’s exactly what the Bhamla Foundation has managed to do with the support of the Pali Hill Residents Association and Ashish Shelar, Minister of School Education, Sports and Youth Welfare, Maharashtra. Our collective efforts has led to the first-of-its-kind model Bio Gas recycling system that converts Waste to Energy using Yasasu Green, a small-scale containerized product to treat waste at source based on DRYCO-ADTM technology. What does this mean for the residents of Pali Hill?

This decentralised model will be a pioneer in a ‘zero garbage’ ecosystem processing nearly 1 ton of waste from 78 buildings and 23 bungalows. The resulting by-product will be used to generate electricity that will power the street lights on Pali. Our goal is to move towards making Pali Hill a plastic-free zone as part of our #BeatPlasticPollution campaign! 

WALK FOR MANGROVES ESHA AND ADITYA

‘Walk for Mangroves’ was a joint initiative by the Bhamla Foundation and SBI that aimed at raising awareness about the importance of mangroves followed by a beach clean-up at Carter Road on Saturday, July 13. The event was flagged off by Yuva Sena Chief Aditya Thackeray, restaurateur Zorawar Kalra and actress Esha Gupta. People from all walks of life were present for the clean-up including students, disabled people, celebrities and social environmentalists like UN awardee and founder of Beach Please Malhar Kalambe and founder of Beach Warriors Chinu Kwatra. 

Speaking about the clean-up Esha Gupta said, 

Celebrities should turn up for such events regularly and not just during any movie promotions as it creates more awareness among the masses. Mangroves help in preventing floods in Mumbai as their dense roots help to bind and build soil which in turn helps in soaking water in large quantities. Such a cute pic of ya know ya na na ya initiatives and the willingness of the people to participate in them is a huge encouragement for us to continue striving.

WEB 2019

This World Environment Day, Asif Bhamla led Bhamla Foundation along with the Ministry of Environment and the United Nations Organization organised an event at Carter Road in Bandra.

Following the #BeatPlasticPollution song ideated by Asif Bhamla, his foundation has come up with, yet another anthem. The #HawaAaneDe musical campaign was made a success by roping in many celebrities and influencers to carry out a message of air pollution threat, with Shaan singing the anthem live along with Swanand Kirkire.

“Clean Air is a basic human right. Together, let us pledge to make our lives and country pollution free,” said Vicky Kaushal.

WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY

Bhamla Foundation and the Ministry of Environment bring together celeb opinion makers on World Environment Day

Save Mother Earth, save our tomorrow: Asif Bhamla

The glitterati of tinsel town and those in power came together for a cause. The man who brought them together was philanthropist Asif Bhamla.

Political leaders Ashish Shelar, Sanjay Nirupam, Priya Dutt, Poonam Mahajan, Smita Thackeray, Piyush Goyal, and stars of the likes of Sanjay Dutt, Zarine Khan, Jackie Shroff, Smita Thackeray, SharadUgade, Sonu Sood, Raveena Tandon, Dia Mirza, Saher Bhamla, Sooraj Pancholi, Shabbir Ahluwalia, Salim-Suleiman, Armaan Malik, Pooja Batra, Raju Shrivastava, Shadab Faridi, Asif Faridi, Jyotika Tangri, Sachin Kumar Valmikan, Kushal Paul and Rupali Jagga, Gurmeet Choudhary, and Kunal Ganjawala attended the event among others.

Sanjay Dutt took to stage and went ahead and made a paper bag that he learnt to make in jail, and shared his experiences with the audiences urging them to reuse waste and save Mother Earth.

Says Asif Bhamla, “We have been organising the World Environment Day event for eight years, and we have always received tremendous support from the celebs, those in power and our partners, residents’ groups and especially the enthusiastic locals. We are elated that people will come forward to help us spread the message this World Environment Day as well. We all need to come together to make the world a better place. And to make our tomorrow secure, we all need to pledge our support to Mother Earth today.”

Added Sehar Bhamla, “World Environment Day is one of the principal vehicles through which the UN stimulates worldwide awareness for the environment and also encourages positive action. This event is one step in the right direction.”

Organised by the Bhamla Foundation, and supported by the Ministry of Environment (Govt. of Maharashtra) and the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board, the event, thronging with people from all fronts, had an interesting and varied line-up of day-long activities.

Zarine han flagged off a massive cycling rally from Bandra Bandstand to Carter Road, an indoor cycling workout on the Carter Road promenade, stalls on environment awareness and preservation, keynote sessions by noted environmentalists and a tree sapling distribution drive among others. The local Residents Association Groups were also felicitated at the event for their role in preserving the environment.

The celebrities were very vocal in not just acknowledging Asif Bhamla’s environment preservation initiative, but also in their stand to preserve the environment. Said Sanjay Dutt, “Even if research never excited you, nor did facts and figures, the least you can do is look around yourself. It is so hot that you cannot live without a fan or an air conditioner. Today, if we do not cut down pollution and stop damaging the environment, we don’t need to bother about our future generations. We ourselves are in big trouble. So it is time we act today.”

Arjun Kapoor’s words were inspiring. “Recycling water, planting trees; the possibility of us making that change exists,” he averred. “Let us get out and be the difference. The solution is within us.”

Saif Ali Khan put it simply with: “The change in the environment is our biggest threat. We consist of 1.2 billion of the world’s population. Surely, we can make the difference,” he asserted.

Sonu Nigam said, “I don’t waste water, I save electricity, keep my environment clean and make sure my son understands the value of hygiene; but now, our responsibility is much larger. Climatic changes, extreme heat and cold, floods, famines, we are responsible for them. Respect mother earth today.”

Sachin Tendulkar‘s inspiring words were: “Let each of us do our bit. We can slowly and steadily make the change and difference to our planet.” Suniel Shetty looked at the environment as “A heritage and lineage passed on to us”, and wanted people to “contribute to save Mother Earth.” Yo Yo Honey Singh, in his characteristic style expressed, “It is too hot to even play basketball today. Look and see the warning. Stop global warming. Act today.” “Natural disasters occur because we play with nature. Let us change our mindset and change our future,” said comedian-actor Kapil Sharma.

Poonam Mahajan wishes that trees granted Wi-Fi so that we would see the need to plant them. “Unfortunately, trees only give oxygen,” she stated. “And breathing is the most important thing we do. The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago,” she said. “And today is the second-best time.”

Farhan Akhtar hit the bull’s-eye when he asked us a question… “If something untoward happens in an area where you live, you can shift, but if it happens to the earth, where will you go?

Randhir Kapoor got nostalgic when he talked of the times when the Bandra promenade, where he now stood was once beach and sand. “Today, there is no beach, no sand. If we don’t conserve our environment, soon there will be nothing.” Indeed!
