Millennium Fellowship Project: Project LYF
LYF is a project that primarily focuses on environmental conservation, focusing on about 25-40 cent area, which can include land and water bodies. The project consists of 3 stages. In the first stage, the idea is to visit the place with some of our volunteers. Then collect plastics and other harmful wastes which might be present in the soil and water. Also, if any alien species are recognized that are harmful to the natural flora, then they will also be removed. We will also be testing the samples of soil/water to detect microplastics or other harmful chemicals which might be present, for awareness. The next stage is planting (trees and shrubs on land and mangroves on the lake bank) in the cleaned-up area as a measure to combat climate change. The main point is that we will plant these trees in a modern manner with a limited expense. We also have a solution for this small amount, to give our collected plastic for recycling, from which we get the required money for modern planting (about 10 rupees for 1kg of plastic waste). In the third stage, we are planning to take care of planted trees and take the required steps for their development.
