ISKCON Govardhan Ecovillage’s offering for Srila Prabhupada’s 125th anniversary: waging war with single-use plastic in India. At present, there are already more than 43,000 youth registered and involved in the challenge, with ISKCON India supporting the initiative holistically, looking towards the future.

As is seen globally, even holy places are littered with plastic bottles, polybags, wrappers, etc. Cows, one of our seven mothers, get choked up and die due to the same plastic waste.
ISKCON and the Govardhan Ecovillage (GEV) have been combatting the plastic pandemic by supporting United Nations Environment Program’s Plastic Tide Turners Challenge (PTTC) program. They were also recognized as a support organization in 2021.
