How about arranging river exhibition?
Can you arrange exhibition in your society clubhouse or office hall?
You can rent the exhibition for free. You only need to arrange for pick and drop.
Jeevitnadi has created an exhibition, named “Story of a River”.
It was launched as part of “Muthai River Festival 2015”. Since then, it has been organised at various schools, colleges, institutes, corporate offices, societies.
It comprises of 45 displays of size A2. Each display has eyelets in 4 corners. Display is made of sun-board.
They can be hung or can be kept resting against wall.
Each display has information in English and Marathi.
It is the story of Mutha river, right from its birth till today.
It is a great tool to generate interest and awareness about our rivers.
Displays are packed compactly in 2 bags, that can be easily carried in a rickshaw or car.

Keep river clean from your house
Yes, it does sound funny. But no, we are not joking 🙂
Various chemicals, some of them quite toxic, enter river from our house. Pollution in majority of our rivers is domestic.
Watch the video for details.
So, what can we do? Use the products that do not contain these toxic chemicals.
We know change is difficult. How about starting small? Start from floor cleaner? Why not use vinegar, which is a weak acid, is natural and does not harm us or our rivers. And on top of that, vinegar is also antibacterial.

Want to organise an event on river bank?
Are you an artist? Or do you know any artist?
How about organising an event by the river?
Events by the river is an unique concept by Jeevitnadi. Such events are highly effective in changing perception towards rivers.
Currently, river and riverbed are considered dirty, filthy, something that should be avoided. Such events bring people to river and change the way people look at the rivers.
