Who are we?

Chennai Against Plastics (CAPS) to Let Our Oceans Live (LOOL) is a simple initiative that began with a group of concerned citizens in search for answers! 

The problem of plastic pollution is growing exponentially every year; we are producing more than 300 million tons of plastic, half of this is designed for single use, and each year around 8 million tons of it ends up in our oceans.

We believe we can solve this problem together and we can do it by educating and engaging everyone in a conversation to rethink plastic. The campaign is fueled by creative contributions and your participation

We encourage the community to make it a personal mission to prevent plastic waste from entering the environment by making small changes every day and reducing usage of single-use plastics. In order to enable the transition from plastic to re-usable alternatives, we will continuously provide awareness through this platform via dissemination of knowledge about plastics, innovations in the field, tried and tested alternatives and highlight resources which will aid you to make informed choices on how you can effectively be part of the change. 

We are all in it together!


Our Vision

  • Enable change in Chennai’s attitude towards Plastic Pollution, Waste management and provide encouragement to adopt eco-friendly alternatives

  • Equip the community for readiness to adopt a plastic free Chennai from 2019

  • Reduce dependence on single-use plastics by creating awareness on suitable alternatives

  • Foster a collaborative spirit in the community to work together to provide a cleaner, greener, plastic free city for our future generations.
