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.

Des meubles en Tetra Pack !

Dimanche, Marc a propose un workshop au Youth Center sur la fabrication de tabourets en Tetra Pack. Oui, vous avez bien lu, nous parlons bien des briques de lait et de jus de fruit. Grace a un astucieux assemblage des briques entre elles pour enfermer de l air a l interieur, il est possible de realiser des meubles tres resistants. Les cinq participants ont egalement appris a les recouvrir de posters decores et a fabriquer du papier mache pour une assise plus confortable. Marc nous explique l origine de ce projet de recyclage ecolo et rigolo.

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.

Behavior Study on Waste

On Monday Min and Akshay of "earth & us" presented their findings from a study of how garbage is handled in Auroville. This study was on waste in particular but was conceptualized as an example for behavioral change more generally. Many Aurovilians see the need for more ecological practices being normalized in the day to day life of the community. How do we encourage those practices to take hold? Listen to the first part of the presentation and see the {slideshow} for ideas and findings that make for the beginnings of an answer.
