Rise Foundation, an NGO based in Delhi, is working towards building a just, Zero Waste world . One of our initiatives is to educate residents on the importance of waste management in mitigating climate change and reducing plastic pollution. Today (1st April 2023), we partnered with APS Colony in Delhi cantonment area to organize a Climate Change and Waste Management Workshop. The workshop covered topics such as waste segregation, composting, and recycling, and highlighted the use of ecobricks made from non-biodegradable waste.
The event was attended by both young and old residents who shared their ideas and experiences on reducing waste and contributing to a cleaner and healthier environment. The management committee and residents agreed to start segregating waste at the source and composting within the campus . This is a much-needed step towards keeping Delhi clean and green, as over 14000 tonnes of garbage are generated in Delhi each day, with most of it managed by the informal sector, which contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and marine pollution.
Rise Foundation’s efforts to promote Zero Waste communities through waste management, climate change mitigation, and plastic pollution reduction are commendable. It is time for us to take responsibility for our waste and contribute to building a cleaner and healthier world.
We thanks to the whole team of APS Colony for initiative towards Zero Waste and Team Rise Foundation – Madhukar Varshney, Madhuri Varshney and Munish Kundra to conducted wonderful session .
