Waste Warriors are a dynamic voluntary organization and a registered society that has collaborated with SAR Group to start a cleanliness drive in Dharamshala. This campaign will start off from Mubarikpur Government School to make it Himachal’s first “Zero Waste Campus”.
The mission of this campaign is to provide affordable and sustainable waste management solutions that improve our environment, health and quality of life through a combination of direct action, liaison, education and awareness raising that will in turn encourage community participation to give people a sense of civic pride and respect for the areas that they live and work in. Apart from Dharamshala this organization will also be covering other places like Dehradun, the capital city of Uttrakhand and Corbett Tiger Reserve.
SAR GROUP of companies and Waste Warriors, a local Non Government organization and an expert in waste management are a technical partner and support in this initiative.
The program was launched in presence of Principal Smt. Saroj Kanwar of GSSS Mubarikpur, Dr. Kailashpati Jha COO-CSR SAR Group, Mr. Ajay Bharadwaj Chief Administration Luminous, Mr. SS Rana Senior Management SAR Group, Sri Karan Thakur President School Management Committee and local leaders like Sri Pooran Singh, Sri Chaman Lal. Mr. Vikas Dadwal of GSSS School, Mr.Avinash Pratap Singh from Waste Warriors and Ms. Amrita Nayak from SAR GROUP facilitated the program.
A total of 500 students of GSSS Mubarikpur will be trained to segregate recyclable and non-recyclable waste. SAR group has donated around 35 dustbins to be used in classrooms and school campus. These students and coordinators will be trained to process green waste into fertilizer that can be later used in the gardens. Under this program a composting unit will be built and the recyclable waste will be later sent to the local Kabadi Walas and non-recyclable waste will be sent to the nearest dumping ground. The campus will only be declared as Zero Waste Campus if it has all the available facilities, knowledge and practices on waste management.
“GSSS Mubarikpur has set an example for waste management in school and we at waste warriors are committed give our support to the program of “Swachh Bharat” launched by Government” as confirmed by Avinash from Waste Warriors.
Zero Waste is a goal that is ethical, economical, efficient and visionary, to guide people in changing their lifestyles and practices to emulate sustainable natural cycles, where all discarded materials can be later designed to become resources for others to use.
