26-Year-Old Man Made It His Mission To Revive India's Lakes.
Dozens of lakes and ponds have finally been restored to what they once were with the help of neighbors, volunteers, and good Samaritans.
But just getting rid of trash and plastic is only step one. Once these bodies of water get cleaned, the volunteers need to dig a separate pit that allows them to collect garbage. A double filtration system gets put in place, where a filter (made of wooden planks and a patch of grass) helps prevent pieces of plastic to end up in the water.
They clean out these filters once a week, and so far, Ramveer has been able to preserve water around different villages in India.
Luckily, his efforts haven't gone unnoticed by the Government, who helped him set up "Groundwater Army" organizations in each district where Ramveer lives. This unsuspecting hero continues raising awareness and even spent his own money all in the name of cleaning out the planet. Clearly, the world needs more people like Ramveer!
