"Mawlynnong" --- India’s ‘Green and Clean’ village! ‘Mawlynnong’ is a small village in the north-eastern Indian state of Meghalaya -- 90km from the state capital Shillong. The village is a picture perfect painting! Discover India magazine declared Mawlynnong as the "Cleanest Village in Asia" in 2003! “The streets are all dotted with dustbins made of bamboo. Every piece of litter and almost every leaf that has fallen from a tree is immediately discarded. Plastic is completely banned and all waste disposal is environmentally friendly. Rubbish is thrown into a pit dug in a forest near the village where it is left to turn into compost”. “The villagers here say that lessons in hygiene start in school so that children can be taught from an early age how to keep their surroundings clean and green”. The village with cent percent literacy is conscious and they are spreading the message of conservation and protection of the forest. Locals plant trees from May to June to ensure that the virgin forest is kept intact and also replenished.
