But this time we went door-to-door and reached out to the residents, urging them to be more conscious about the environment. With today's turnout, it looks that it was a successful event," said Himanshu Joshi, who is one of the driving force of the initiative.
Joshi and Tarun Manatee are two residents of Sea Show Apartments, who have been continuously putting efforts in making their sector resident and environment friendly.
