Volunteering at Goonj is an organic journey that begins with an exploration at the processing center, with hands-on involvement in processing, sorting, and upcycling activities.

At Goonj we call Volunteering – ‘extending my circle of Goonj Do Gooders.’

Here are five simple options for you to take the plunge –

Start with a collection camp

typically a place around your locality

Extend your social and physical circle –

  • Motivate three or more  people in your social circle to live and give sustainably by contributing or volunteering
  • Reach out to institutions that have a collective of people like corporations, schools, colleges, etc and inspire them to join the Goonj community of do-gooders.
