Waste is one of the biggest challenges faced by the world today, and the future of solid waste management depends on every single individual. Although government authorities, leaders of the nations, municipalities and local communities are working hard to manage the extensive amount of waste generated every day, a radical change in mindset at an individual level is the need of the hour.
On a broader note, improper waste disposal and management, which includes public littering, lack of waste segregation, uncontrolled collection and disposal and poor waste treatment practices, have greatly impacted the world. According to a World Bank report, 2.01 billion tons of municipal solid waste is generated every year across the world, out of which it is estimated that 33% is not managed properly, impacting the environment.
The sanitation situation in India has been grim for a long time. Lack of proper toilet facilities, waste disposal mechanisms and shortage of water in different parts of the country has caused multiple problems such as open defecation and subsequently water and soil pollution. Moreover, poor sanitation has led to the spread of diseases among communities and a countless number of deaths.

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.
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.
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 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.
Untreated waste is not just a critical threat to public health, it is also a major threat to the environment. Toxic waste contaminates our air, soil and water, creating a cycle of harm breaking which will need all of us to make lifestyle changes at an individual level too.
