CREASION in association with The Coca-Cola Foundation, Bottler's Nepal (Terai) Limited and other youth organizations organized the annual event Hamro Cycle Yatra to publicly honor the waste workers for their remarkable contributions to the waste management sector, leading up to the Global Recycling Day on March 18, 2022.

Hamro Cycle Yatra commenced on March 9 with a cycle rally from Belchowk, Bharatpur with waste workers. Our association partners, youths, and volunteers were present at the event. Upon reaching Chaubiskothi, waste workers were honored in the presence of Mrs. Parbati Shah, Deputy Mayor of Bharatpur Municipality, adorning the waste workers with a tika for their hard work. After the formal address, the rally proceeded to the Recycler Saathi Center in Shivaghat.

The ceremony continued with a short round of speeches from our association partners Chitwan Scrap Association, Better Chitwan, Way Group, Ek Sapana Cycle Ra Safa Nepalko, Nepal Development Society, CESS, Hamro Drishti Ramro Drishti, Real Madrid Fan Club Chitwan, Chitwan Smart Scouts Crew, The United Chitwan, and Recovering Nepal. The event was addressed by Aanand Mishra, Founder and President of CREASION, and Bikram K.C, The Coca-Cola Foundation.

The waste workers were then provided with a certificate for their hard work and contribution to keeping the environment clean through recycling and provided with lunch. Celebrations of the event followed with a drama on waste, and dance and music to mark the celebration of Global Recycling Week. The CREASION team, volunteers, and youths of Chitwan also held an early Holi celebration and ended the event with a satisfied grin on all of our faces.
