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. The youth can further seek inspiration from Malhar and Chinu as they have been conducting beach cleanups for a long time and have played a very important role in keeping our beaches clean.   

Malhar Kalambe who has been felicitated by the United Nations (UN) for starting his initiative Beach Please along with his friends said, 

Mangroves are an essential part of the ecosystem and taking into consideration that their existence in Mumbai is deteriorating we should try our best to save them. 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 initiatives and the willingness of the people to participate in them is a huge encouragement for us to continue striving.
