everyone to participate and spoke of the importance of environment, saying that it is everyone's responsibility to look after it and not that of the government alone. Gloves and garbage bags were distributed amongst the volunteers who set off along Temple Road and carried on down the road to the start of the Kora circumambulation path around His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s residence and temple.

Along the way, Losang Tsering spoke to shopkeepers, encouraging them to not dispose of garbage on the road side. Brochures in English, Tibetan and Hindi were distributed to shopkeepers and the public explaining the little steps everyone can take to conserve the environment.The garbage collected from along the road and the nearby hill side was collected and brought to Ahimsa house, Lha’s hostel and community soup kitchen, where it was collected and removed by truck.

The whole event was exclusively covered by the Tibet Times, one of the most read Tibetan medium newspapers. Two of their staff members joined the volunteers throughout the clean-up, filming and interviewing them and broadcasting the event on social media. Lha is delighted to work with the Tibet Times and to foster good relations in our community in this way. One of the Tibet Times representatives is an old Lha staff member.
