Wrapping up the 12-hour Banega Swachh India cleanathon, brand ambassador Amitabh Bachchan says that despite differences, there was unity in what people said about cleanliness. We must introspect why the voices are not reaching the millions of people out there.

Tony Ribbink, CEO and Founding Trustee of Sustainable Seas Trust joins the cleanathon to talk about pollution in the oceans. 3 tonnes of fish are caught in the sea every day and continuing plastic pollution could result in more plastic in oceans than fish by 2050.

Governments, municipalities and schools have a huge role to play to ensure that plastic does not go into the river. Plastics from ships must also be stopped from entering the oceans.
