With the aim of motivating the participation of the public and shopkeepers on the 14th September ’07 in Bhowali, “The Himalayan Helpers", the community, school students  and the cadets of the NCC, held a rally followed by a cleaning of the main temple in the market and main bazaar.

A week later, posters "We discourage the use of polythene. Please do not ask for polythene bags. Please bring your own carrybags" were posted at shops around the market with the cooperation of the shop-owners, the shopkeepers’ union and Nagar Palika. The shop-owners were also asked to take responsibility for the immediate street section to keep it clean to which most agreed. This initiative has had a visible impact.  

The Himalayan Helpers in Bhowali have since agreed to work under the banner of My Clean India.  

In January 08, The Himalayan Helpers have been distributing free-of-charge paper bags to shops to replace polythene with excellent cooperation.
