BD Clean founder Farid Uddin once saw an empty garbage bin owned by Dhaka City Corporation. He was surprised to find heaps of garbage surrounding it despite it being empty. From that, he thought to himself that if people are not aware, giving only so many garbage bins will not yield a fruitful result. On the evening of June 2, 2016, he discussed this issue with his close friends. That same night, 24 people joined together in a cleaning campaign and cleaned an area from Shahbag to Kawran Bazar, Dhaka. BD clean was founded the next day. BD Clean is a non-governmental, non-political, voluntary citizen’s platform for creating awareness and motivating people about cleanliness.
