The zero-waste philosophy is one of the ways to combat climate change and pollution. Our ancestors strongly believed and practiced ‘Zero Waste’ philosophy. When new products were introduced into our country for convenience, they failed to educate us on how to dispose them scientifically and this ignorance led to the current state we are in. It is therefore very important to educate our youth to understand this concept, being responsible and implement their learning to make our country a better place. And school is the place to do that. We believe that values can be instilled at a young age and 13 years of schooling will make the youth ambassadors of ‘Zero Waste Philosophy’, who will not only spread the concept but also walk the talk.

My name is Manish I am a company secretary final student and doing my post graduation in finance I joined project udan as a fellow to have some new experiences but after a few classes I realised it's not gonna be an easy task. Now I have a different perspective to look as I share a personal relation with my students which is far beyond than educator student relationship. Working with koru foundation, I got opportunities to not only teach but to learn as well, here we discuss things not only related to our work but also about other social , political topics these discussions help me to build my opinions and change my perspective towards social issues.

A school is known for its students and when we say Zero Waste School, we don’t just mean the school premises but the children there, to be the Zero Waste Ambassadors in the community they come from. The Changemakers, the Leaders as we may call them. Children are our future and through this program we intend to create a healthy, equitable, safe and sustainable future for all of us.

Waste segregation is important not only to reduce the impact it has on the environment, but also health issues that can arise from waste and toxins that have been improperly disposed of. Waste segregation is also an economically beneficial prospect because it makes recycling much easier.
