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.

LFA2017 – 3R

Past Friday LFA2017 has successfully started, and Ribhu and Marc are talking about it.
As Ribhu says “a little campaign” of LFA or Litter Free Auroville 2017 is going on for next almost three weeks with the main purpose to engage the whole community on the topic of our trash. They are trying to center their efforts in the ways how to treat our garbage with the mission to come to the zero waste…
Wastless(educational part), Upcylcing Studio(take care of difficult waste stream) and Eco Service(picking our daily waste) are main players in those efforts, and they are trying to reach integral service, an approach to treat waste.
Marc and Ribhu founded their “heart” in garbage, and are passionately dealing with waste …. on the road of sustainability, which always starts with ourself, on daily basis.
