The Indian train network is one of the most impressive in the world, yet also one of the dirtiest. All along the lengths of the train tracks, garbage is thrown carelessly along the tracks, including plastic and polythene which pollute the environment and endangers wildlife. Many tracks have become like open sewers, as waste from the trains is emptied directly onto the tracks, and railway stations often lack proper sanitation as well.
What GAP is Doing
- Working with the Ministry of Railways to clean the tracks of the train system and install eco-friendly toilets on all trains and in train stations
- Working with the Ministry of Railways to create a special train named “Jai Gange Express” which will run along the course of Ganga from Rishikesh to Gangasagar. The train will be filled with information and inspiration on the significance of Ganga and how to protect and preserve Her sacred waters.
