What is Clean Coonoor?
The meaning of clean usually refers to removing something unwanted: you clean your hands by washing them, then you can clean some grapes. This word has many meanings related to being pure or empty. Clean Coonoor is a community campaign which strives to help the town have:
- A clean and safe water supply.
- A clean and safe ambient air.
- An efficient system for safe emptying of animal, human, and industrial waste.
- Clean food free of biological and chemical contaminants.
- Adequate housing in clean and safe surroundings.
Why Clean Coonoor? Isn’t there a local body which is paid to do the job?
True, Coonoor has been a municipal corporation since 1866, but is presently both understaffed and cash-strapped. The organisational structure of the town is meant for a population about 50,000 individuals, but, tourism with its influx of a large floating population, at times undermines the efficiency of the existing infrastructure. This is why Clean Coonoor steps in to help!

Can I Fundraise for Clean Coonoor and how?
Yes, and there are plenty of ways. Physical events are some of the most popular ways that people raise money for charity, you can either run or organise a marathon. If you are planning a wedding or some similar event you could ask your guests to donate to Clean Coonoor instead of buying gifts. You can remember a loved one who had cared about people and nature, by continuing their legacy. You can do something completely different, have a bake-sale, organise a concert or some similar event. In short whatever you want to do, provided you fundraise at the same time.
