Dadar's Malhar Kalambe gets felicitated by the UN for his initiative 'Beach Please'

For a 21-year old, weekends are all about parties, hangouts, Netflix and chill.

But for Malhar Kalambe, weekends are all about stepping up to clean Dadar beach with his initiative 'Beach Please'. United Nations (UN) recognised his selfless work and awarded him for their initiative.

Malhar had started this initiative on September 10, 2017, with the help of 25 odd volunteers. He had visited Bali and the sight of pristine clean beaches there made him think about the hapless condition of the beaches back in Mumbai, especially, during Ganesh Chaturthi. 

However, he further felt that just cleaning the shore won't be the solution as the source of all this waste is from Mithi River. Therefore they further started the clean-up at Mithi river as well.

Notably, Afroz Shah had initiated this fad at Versova Beach and has also received recognition from the UN.
