we are clean city
Clean City is a social enterprise working to educate locals on
how to segregate waste, build a waste management facility, and implement the
first trash collection program of its kind in Chitwan, Nepal.
The Clean City model is one that can be replicated and implemented across Nepal and the world, creating a better future for all.
Clean City is creating a model for taking a local and global problem and creating a solution that provides a holistic system of positive impact.
POLLUTION IN NEPAL
Nepal’s devastating pollution and lack of waste management has resulted in an environmental crisis and human health hazard. 70% of waste is dumped in rivers, in national parks, or it is gathered into heaping trash piles where it is burned on the side of streets. Lack of education and overuse of single-use plastics are a huge part of the issue. Clean City is working to help.
PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT. CREATE JOBS. EMPOWER LOCALS.
Clean City operates within a holistic model.
Our goals are multi-faceted and interdependent.
By creating an effective waste management program, we work to protect the environment, create financial stability at the local level by creating viable jobs and stimulating the local economy, and empower the most marginalized groups in the local community.
