In September 2018, the World Bank announced that our global waste production is predicted to rise by 70 per cent by 2050 unless we take urgent action. Humankind currently produces two billion tonnes of waste per year between 7.6 billion people.
India is getting buried in its own garbage as well! A huge quantity of solid waste generated daily is never picked up and poisons land, air and water. 1.50 lakh metric tonne (MT) of solid waste every day.
There are two things we can do:
1. Manage waste better: You can read our articles and learn what you can do to make your life more sustainable
2. Buy products that don’t create waste: Buy products from brands like www.earthist.in which fit here because anything that you buy from them can happily go to a landfill and mother-earth will still be very happy! Their low waste, minimal & 100% compostable packaging products ensure that you live responsibly.
I started this blog to build awareness about both these things ! Stay tuned
