Gift-A-Bin for Saryu River
Please scroll down to read about how you can help the Saryu River
Hi, my name is Saryu River. Many call me Saryu Mata too. Did you know that I am the largest tributary of the Ganga by volume! I am also home to India’s National Aquatic Animal the freshwater Gangetic Dolphins! There are only 4 such species of river dolphins in the world, so I am a unique river.
Unfortunately, human impact is causing my destruction. I understand that you worship me but I wish you did not dump me with your waste. My true worship and the worship of Ganga Mata too is when you don’t dump waste in me and protect my other children- the River Dolphin, the Gharial, the Turtle, the Sarus and many more!”
eSF’s Friends of Saryu River are working hard to protect me from human impact. They work hard during the Swachh Saryu Abhiyaan every alternate Sunday to remove the trash from my banks.
However, they need your support. eSF aims to install segregated dustbins on my banks so that people can stop throwing waste inside me and use the dustbins instead. What’s even better is the trashcans will be segregated into biodegradable and non-biodegradable. eSF has pledged to collect this waste and dispose of it responsibly so it doesn’t reach the landfills which are coming up in my wetlands. As my children, will you support them? This is a plea from an iconic river of India- will you, as a responsible India contribute for my conservation?
Your contribution will help install dustbins on my banks and also support awareness campaigns for responsible waste management. eSF’s aim is to save the planet with one river at a time. Your help will help them succeed in protecting me, and with that success, eSF aims to come to protect one of my Sister rivers which could be close to you. After all, India’s Rivers unite the country.
Please help eSF help me, consider donating a small amount for my conservation and the conservation of my children- human and non-human.
