Cartons Le Aao, Classroom Banao is going big, and Mumbai Dabbawalas joined us in the programme. About 50,000 dabbawalas reached out to 1 lakh homes in Mumbai, telling them about the campaign and asking them to deposit theirs at the collection centres near them. The dabbawala also handed them a Tetra Pak juice carton, to remind them their duty as a consumer and as a responsible citizen.
The same cartons were collected from the homes couple of days later, washed, and flattened by the these people, and about 1 lakh cartons were deposited at the carton collection centres: Sahakari Bhandar | Reliance Fresh | Reliance Smart. The dabbawalas covered a number of areas of the city, right from Virar, to Nalasupara, to Andheri, Bandra, Dadar, Colaba, etc.
Mumbai Dabbawala take immense pride to be a part of this initiative and help build the much needed classrooms for thousands of lesser privileged kids.
It’s your time to do the bit now! Cartons Le Aao, Classroom Banao.
