We are at a point in time where every action from here on can be the make or break point for our planet. Only with collective will and decisive action can we ensure a continued future for Earth.
5 years in, India’s Swachh Bharat Mission has succeeded in its ambitious goal of making India ODF. However, much still needs to be done before we can declare the project an unqualified success on all fronts.
Drug resistant disease strains are one of the biggest healthcare concerns globally today. Overuse of antibiotics is only one reason why diseases are becoming drug resistant though. An equally big role is played by inefficient wastewater treatment which results in antibiotic residues seeping into soil and water.
Septic tanks can be an amazing tool in your journey towards a more sustainable future for the planet. But they too need TLC to ensure they can do their job well.
Previously, we spoke about untreated wastewater and ocean pollution and the need to protect our oceans from the dangers of wastewater contamination. This need for protection, however, extends to all our water bodies too.
Water conservation is the crying need of the hour all over the world today. We’re entering into a future where cities globally are waking up to the prospect of dry taps. One way to prevent water wastage is to cut down on flushing of restroom urinals with our revolutionary technology.
Monsoons in India are not just harbingers of good news. They also bring a whole host of diseases with them including malaria, dengue and cholera. The secret to protect yourself from these diseases might lie in how you treat your septic tank.
The cleaning products you use at home are also making you fall ill and making the indoor air quality in your home poor and damaging our environment and contaminating our water supplies. Switch to a greener alternative.
The Swachh Bharat story cannot become reality unless we ensure manual scavenging is actually eradicated. And this can only happen when we change individual practises and upgrade India’s sanitation infrastructure. And when we make sure we don’t treat lives of sanitation workers as disposable.
Yes, millions of tonnes of plastic waste is choking our seas and polluting our waters. But equally dire is the litres upon litres of wastewater entering our oceans and contaminating all the water in a cyclical, multigenerational chain of damage. Damage that can begin to be reversed using solutions harnessed from nature herself.
