All the clothes collected were then donated to Goodwill India.
The third activity that Sustainability Initiatives planned was carpooling or using public transport on the 6th of June. Less fuel consumption and lesser pollution was the agenda for the day. Everyone at office was urged to either use carpooling with other office mates or use public transport, walk, bicycle to work. Lot of people carpooled to work, some cycled and used the public transportation for traveling that day.
