New Delhi (CNN)It’s hard to believe, but this pristine shoreline was until recently considered to be one of Mumbai’s dirtiest beaches.
Labeled the “world’s largest beach clean-up project” by the United Nations, Versova’s dramatic transformation from filthy to fabulous has gone viral in India, where online commentators have praised the role of local volunteers in helping in the colossal effort.
Led by spirited young lawyer and environmentalist Afroz Shah, volunteers collected a staggering 5.3 million kilograms of decomposing trash and plastic from the 2.5 kilometer stretch of beach over a period of 21 months.
