Afroz Shah

Afroz Shah is a young lawyer from Mumbai synonymous with the world’s largest beach clean-up project in October 2015. He started cleaning up the beach, one piece of rubbish at a time and over the years he slowly built up and inspired a community of volunteers to join him with people including celebrities and Bollywood stars. They have collected over 4,000 tons of trash from the 2.5 km beach. Their greatest reward was definitely the time when over 80 vulnerable Olive Ridley turtle hatchlings were spotted returning to the Mumbai beach for the first time in decades.
