We see trash everywhere - the muddy mosaic of plastic bottles and colourful wrappers lining the edge of every street.

India generates 3 millions truckloads of waste per day coming from over 500 cities each. Out of which 60% is biodegradable (veg waste, peels). The remaining 40% is nondegradable (plastic, rubber).

The extent of waste generated by the corporate sector of the country is beyond imagination. There is very little awareness regarding this issue especially when offices are the largest consumers of paper in the market. While some organisations are struggling to make a change in this sector by encouraging offices to go paperless, the problem still prevails.

The majority of coffee waste and paper stationery waste generated every single day ends up with other trash in ...
