The event aimed to address the challenges posed by the large influx of devotees during the Ambubachi Mela, which significantly increases waste generation and environmental strain. By involving local stakeholders and the public, VoE and its partners hope to create lasting behavioral changes that will benefit the temple area and its surroundings.

Participants were educated on the harmful effects of single-use plastics and were encouraged to adopt more sustainable practices. The Railway Protection Force played a crucial role in facilitating the smooth execution of the campaign, ensuring that the message reached a wide audience. This collaborative effort marks a significant step towards achieving a cleaner and more sustainable environment for one of Assam’s most revered religious sites.
