“Payanam 100”, a walk for plastic initiative is receiving wide recognition among the public. On the 29th of April 2023, Walk For Plastic will be conducting a one-day mass clean-up activity called ‘Payanam 100’, which is a 100-kilometer Walkathon in Chennai. The goal of this initiative is to achieve sustainable development, where city residents will gather together to collect and recycle littered plastic through waste segregation. The event will be held from 8 am to 6 pm, and the funds procured through this initiative will be used to educate five deserving children belonging to families working in the waste management chain. This initiative will help us achieve a balance in our ecosystem by making it cleaner and greener, while also empowering the deserving children.
The Payanam 100 initiative will start from seven routes around 8 am, and all routes will meet at CIPET by evening. The event will be held at CIPET, Guindy, and will be graced by the Honourable Minister of Youth Welfare and Sports of Tamil Nadu Thiru. Udhayanidhi Stalin. Participants can register for the initiative by scanning the QR code provided and downloading the Payanam 100 document from the form to learn more about the event. Additionally, regular updates about the event can be found on Walk For Plastic’s profile @walkforplastic, and by following the #payanam100 hashtag.
Walk For Plastic is a movement focused on eradicating littering and implementing sustainability, initiated on the 1st of June 2019 by Artist B. Gowtham in Chennai. The movement has since become a global movement, with a mission to create a litter-free world and solve six major issues, including littering, ocean pollution, mindless consumption, destroying natural habitats, and social stigma. By educating and empowering the youth, Walk For Plastic aims to promote sustainable living and create a cleaner, healthier environment for future generations.
The Payanam 100 initiative is an excellent opportunity for the residents of Chennai to come together and make a positive impact on the environment while also empowering deserving children. By participating in the event, individuals can contribute towards creating a sustainable future while also spreading awareness about the harmful effects of plastic waste. Walk For Plastic’s mission to create a litter-free world is one that requires collective effort, and initiatives like Payanam 100 are steps in the right direction towards achieving this goal.

The event covered multiple routes and involved 611 volunteers who collected 2324.23Kgs of plastics. The distance covered by the walkathon was the longest in the city.
