Did you ever think that what you look at as garbage and promptly throw out of your home or office could actually be something important for the society as a whole, and of course for the environment? We all call the local kabadiwala (raddiwala) to take away our used items such as paper, metal, wood and such, but what happens then? What if you could ‘donate’ your garbage and see your waste actually help someone?
Interesting isn’t it?
That’s what the concept of GreenCiti is based on, who are working as the real planet savers.
What They Do
The group collects and sustainably uses the waste in collaboration with various rag pickers, garbage collectors, bulk scrap dealers and recyclers. They also carry out workshops in housing societies, malls, corporate houses and other such places to inform people on how they can properly and easily dispose of their waste in an eco-friendly manner and why it is so important. Whatever garbage is collected, the team then makes sure that it is recycled or reused, wherever possible.
