To encourage and educate people keep coastal areas and beaches clean, the service personnel of the Indian Coast Guard along with their families, NGOs and students launched a coastal clean-up drive at Juhu and Girgaum Chowpatty beaches in Mumbai on Saturday.

The clean-up was undertaken as part of the International Coast Clean-up 2012. Other beaches along the Maharashtra coastline including those in in Ratnagiri and Murud Janjira also saw similar activities.

As a part of the drive, volunteers cleared the debris and removed non-biodegradable material such as plastic, rubber, glass and metal from along the coastline.
