Shishir Joshi conceived ‘The Mumbai Plastic Recyclothon’ as an initiative to involve voluntary participation of people across the region to make the community and city cleaner & healthier. The larger purpose was to inculcate a habit of giving, inspire a sense of hygiene & inject awareness of the perils of plastic as well as the benefits of recycling plastic for public amenities. Through this unique initiative the donated plastic will be recycled and converted into benches for senior citizens and a live permanent work of art.. The MCGM and MMRDA has approved this. Shishir invested over 200 hours in this project and his key role in the Recyclothon was to lead by example and build a communication network along with confidence among the masses who wished to participate. The Recyclothon resulted in huge participation amongst citizens, institutions and the local administration, as well as created massive awareness, across all age groups as a voluntary act of giving.Shishir wholeheartedly dedicates his time because he "Prefers walking the talk", because by leading a volunteering initiative like this, others too get inspired to take the plunge.
