Proposed Project Description

OUR VISION: To make Bharat Waste-Free


THE PROBLEM WE ARE TRYING TO SOLVE: Currently, Urban India generates 62 million tonnes of waste (MSW) annually, and it has been predicted that this will reach 165 million tonnes in 2030, 43 million tonnes of municipal solid waste are collected annually, out of which 31 million is dumped in landfill sites and just 11.9 million is treated. And there are not enough public bins, and the available bins are not even covered, most times, waste overflows out of those bins and ends up going all over the streets.


As we all know, for a developing country like India, solid waste management is an ever-growing problem. We believe we need to help our young generation, which might be our potential waste generators in the future if not assisted in the right direction. To make them aware of the calamities we’ll face if we don’t work on SWM and protect the environment. And in return will help in sustaining a better future for our young generation.


OUR INITIATIVE: To do that, we have created this fun and knowledge based interactive "Captain Planet Workshop”. We have taught 300+ children so far in Delhi, Noida, Ghaziabad, and Greater Noida and are planning to reach a goal of 1000+ in the coming months, and our vision is to run this workshop pan India.


BENEFITS OF OUR WORKSHOP:

  • This workshop will educate our young and future generation who can be our potential waste generators if not given the right direction
  • It will help them in learning and practicing handling solid waste at the household/ school/ personal level
  • It will inculcate a sense of responsibility towards our environment in our young generation
