Mangaluru: In continuation to its ongoing initiative of protecting our environment and also creating awareness on health hazards, the CODP® Mangaluru organized a cleanliness drive program on 19th January 2020 at Kadri-Nanthoor Padav.

The program was inaugurated by Rev. Fr Richard DSouza, Director of Canara Communication Center, along with Rev. Fr Oswald Monteiro, the Director of CODP.

Fr Richard spoke on how we can contribute to the society by keeping our surroundings clean. He said we must teach this to our younger generation so they will create an eco-friendly environment. He also congratulated members of CODP’s Kalpavraksha and Kamadhenu Mahasangas for taking up this good work. 

Fr Oswald Monteiro explained that plastic is degrading the environment. Hence we should reduce, revise and re-cycle the plastic. He also explained how plastic is carcinogenic and affects our health. He appreciated the members for contributing their time and efforts to keep our surroundings clean. 

Ms Shilpa DSouza, Mrs Rita DSouza and Mrs Kalagirish of CODP along with 50 mahasangha members worked half a day in removing the plastic waste strewn around in the area.
