Our Himalayas Are Beautiful & Sacred.

Let's Keep Them That Way!

Let's Promote Responsible Tourism​

Our forests and rivers are a continuous source of life for the countless wildlife who call the mountains their home.

Reports from NITI Aayog and the World Bank estimate that the Indian Himalayan Region (IHR) now generates more than five to eight million metric tons of waste annually.

Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh have witnessed more than 400 million tourists since 2010 and are among the worst-performing states when it comes to solid waste management.

India’s majestic Himalayas are filling-up with waste every single day from waste that is unmanaged and littered carelessly. It’s high time we all act as responsible tourists and manage our waste the right way.

At Waste Warriors, we believe in engaging local and travelling communities to not only learn about the waste crisis in the Himalayas but also join hands to take action for preserving the rich biodiversity of the area. From clean up drives to flash mobs, we organise a range of fun and engaging events at popular tourist destinations to spread awareness on keeping the mountains free from waste. Check out our events section.

Visit Our Tourist Hubs!

To spread awareness on the menace of littering, we have transformed many popular tourists spaces in Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand with wall paintings and art installations made from waste. You can also visit our Material Recovery Facilities in Dehradun and Dharmshala and learn how we are diverting waste away from the environment and into recycling value chains.
