On 11th April, 2019, a group of enthusiastic youth from the Revolutionary Youth Club pledged to turn their society into the first plastic free society of Ramgarh district in Jharkhand. Thereafter, within the duration of one month, the youth (mostly students from age group of 15 to 25 years) collected every single-use plastic from public places such as playgrounds, markets, and main roads, among others.
