This is Versova Beach in Mumbai, India. Over 5.3 million kilograms of trash was removed from the 2.5 km stretch of beach over a period of 21 months (starting in 2015). The initiative was led by lawyer and environmentalist, Afroz Shah, whose efforts gained nationwide media attention and drew over 1,000 volunteers to help clean up the beach.
