A talk by Ribhu and Marc

During the Litter Free Auroville 2017 Ribhu (from Wasteless) and Marc (from Upclycling studio) gave a very inspiring talk explaining the current waste management systems in our country and how it is affecting the environment. It started with a movie ‘Trash to Treasure, about upcycling and recycling’. Then they talked about how it has become a need to change this system as soon as possible otherwise all of our lands are gonna be converted into a big dumpster. The talk was actively joined by many people.
