Madhukar Varshney and Munish Kundra from Rise Foundation made the gathering aware of how to manage waste at the source level and how an individual can contribute to minimising the greenhouse effect. Munish Kundra urged the people to condemn single-use plastic in daily life. He also demonstrated how to manage such plastic by making eco-bricks. Kids of the society also took part in the interaction on the subject and shared their knowledge and asked queries to the experts.

Madhukar Varshney urged to all residents to do home composting or community composting.

Home Composting benefits the climate in a few different ways, including by reducing greenhouse gas emissions at landfills, by promoting uptake of carbon dioxide by vegetation, and by making our plants and gardens more resilient to the effects of climate change.
The use of compost provides numerous greenhouse gas benefits, both directly through carbon sequestration and indirectly through improved soil health, reduced soil loss, increased water infiltration and storage, and reduction in other inputs.

Management of the society appreciated the efforts of CitySpidey and Rise Foundation on the subject of environmental protection.  President of the society, SB Soni said, “This was a good event and more such events would be organised in the future to sensitise the community. It was moral boosting that small kids took interest in such subject and participated.”

Secretary of the society, KL Tripathi gave his thanks to CitySpidey and Rise Foundation for the event and said, “This was a wonderful event and we would like to do more such events.”
