KATHMANDU: Following in the green footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary, Green Stars Founder, Alan Bywaters has launched ‘Guardians of the Himalayas’ programme in an effort to engage everyone involved in the trekking and expedition industry to continue the great social and environmental work Sir Edmund Hillary began back in June 1961 and become protectors of the mountains instead of waste producers.
Green Stars is launching ‘Guardians of the Himalayas’ programme for World Environment Day on June 5.
The team will be going on an Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) on sixth ‘Clean Trek’ where locals will be educated on the value of the plastic waste and clean up waste off the mountains.
These plastics will be upcycled into plastic bricks used for earthquake-resistant buildings, as per a media release.
