Be the change, Lead the Change.
Our 'Singara Chennai' has had and continue to have many firsts to its credit. But the one that we wont be proud of is that beating Kolkata and Delhi to top the Indian Cities list in garbage creation. Around 6404 tonnes of garbage is generated every day by the city, with every household contributing 30 per cent recyclable, 60 per cent organic and 10 per cent hazardous waste. This is in addition to 9,898 kg of bio-medical waste from the 730 hospitals in the city. Kodambakkam, Adyar, Anna Nagar and Teynampet zones of the municipal corporation are the highest contributors. Not to mention about the huge amount of waste that is generated by us in our workplaces, things such as paper cups, tissue papers, etc.
The two crucial aspects that could bring this statistics down are waste segregation at source and proper waste disposal. The plan here is to get in touch with the corresponding people, CSR team in the case of Corporates and Apartment Board President/Team in the case of Residential areas, explain them about this process and setup a meeting with Earth Recyler team to implement proper waste management system.
If YOU wanna be the changemaker in your Workplace/Residential area and take initiatives to implement a proper waste management system please register your details in the links provided at the bottom.
Few of the Apartments have already came forward to implement waste segregation in their building, courtesy our active CTC volunteers. Tranquil acres is one such apartment, which is located in Thoraipakkam-Pallavaram main road.
Let’s start saying no to the polythene covers offered generously in the supermarket and by vegetable vendors… anywhere and everywhere. I know it is not that easy to say NO when somebody is offering a less maintenance or a use and throw stuff. But its such a huge burden that we are giving to mother earth to digest. Mother Earth is suffering, infact crying aloud unable to bare the plastic. Listen to her voice. Lets join hands to get our workplace and living place healthier and get our kids habituated for this waste management. If we can get our kids understand this, they will correct us when we are unconsciously doing something wrong and infact they in turn will teach more people as they grow.
Lets be proud to say that, WE GENERATE VERY LESS LANDFILL.
