Today is World Environment Day. For those of you who have visited Mumbai and Dharavi in particular, you will know that sadly people in our communities do not think much about their impact on the earth on a daily basis. So for this special day we think that it is important to take time out to raise awareness about environmental issues.
Our friends at RUR, an organisation dedicated to creating eco-conscious citizens, invited us to participate in two earth-friendly activities this year. On Sunday the 3rd of June, we cycled for recycling in a 8 km course showing the public how they can reduce their load on landfill. 110 participants - the youngest was 6, the oldest 75 years - joined the rally to spread the word for a greener environment. Reality Tours and Travel supported the event by organizing 100 bicycles for the participants. Furthermore our guides ensured that the participants stay safe and ride the right way.
