Mission and Vision
Plastic Pollution Free TN (நெகிழி மாசில்லா தமிழ்நாடு) is a movement started with a vision to curb plastic and other related products’ pollution from the state. It was inaugurated on Nov 14, 2019 by our Hon’ble Chief Minister OF Tamil Nadu along with his council of ministers.
It's current mission is to create a large network of school students from Tamilnadu, who will act as young ambassadors for the movement. This approach of inculcating sustainability into our state from the grass-root level is expected to bear fruits in the years to come.
The movement aims to bring measures which can reduce plastic usage within the state to almost zero through alternative materials which can be used for required activities. A platform where students can come up with innovative ideas and techniques to support the vision would be created
Each student in every school would be given enough exposure to ideate, brainstorm and present his ideas on the concerned topics.
A Unique Membership ID will be provided to each and every student through which he/she can represent himself/herself
Schools would play a major role in making this movement a success. Thanks to all schools for your cooperation and we look forward to some great initiatives in the future
