Vishnu Priya then talks about the initiative, and the aim behind it. She continues, that if we were to properly segregate domestic waste, there will practically be no garbage at all. We will be left with seven to eight types of things that cannot be recycled. By doing this, we will become a country that produces zero waste !She shared her ideas such as eco san community toilet which is set up for the inhabitants and it makes use of minimum water for disposal of waste matter.
She also insisted the faculties to stop being a consumer and to believe in the principle of reducing, reusing and recycling for the next healthy generation”. Finally she ended with a message that this world is not only for humans, there are also other species, stop being selfish and start being responsible and take small steps. It might contribute for a bigger change. Ms. Rubini.V from the department of Social work officially delivered the Vote of thanks and created a new beginning.
