‘IIP Foundation’ is a Delhi based social welfare non-government organization, Regd. under Trust Act. Our project Garbage to Garden is a reformative social initiative and has taken up the grand endeavour to fight against the evil of garbage. Our vision is to have a Healthy and Hygienic Nation through Waste Segregation.
It is a known fact that we are a product of our environment. Our social and cultural life, physical and mental health along with our economic condition is directly linked to our surroundings. The all-encompassing nature of this cause makes it one that needs immediate attention.
Urban India is the world’s third-largest generator of garbage and by 2050 waste is expected to rise to 436 million tons, roughly 70-75% of which remains untreated. Most landfill sites are over-flowing in our country due to the faulty waste disposal system and there is literally no space to accommodate fresh garbage waste. Nearly 20% of methane gas emissions in India are caused by landfills. The trash dumped in the landfills is prone to catching fire due to the heat generated by the decomposition of waste, becoming a health hazard for the citizens of India in more ways than one. And we are well aware that several other developing nations are also plagued by the very same problems. We wish to share our practices and collaborate with likeminded people and organizations.
Efficient and effective waste management is the need of the hour and there are simple remedies that we can use to do our bit. So we decided to start at the origin of it all, which is our home.Study suggests that by segregating, recycling and composting, a family of 4 can reduce their waste from 1000 Kg to less than 100 kg every year. Multiply that with your population and you can immediately see the immense benefits of composting. Apart from adopting this model at home, we also need to do the same in schools, colleges, companies, canteens, hotels, restaurants and hospitals.
We have designed our reformative social initiative ‘Garbage to Garden’ to manage waste more efficiently right from its origin, our home. We have come up with a plan to utilize kitchen waste, to create compost and help grow organic produce with the manure created by our own kitchen waste. Our mantra is, ‘Don’t throw it, Grow it’.
Our project Garbage to Garden is community driven and result oriented. We do not want to follow a top down approach, instead we wish to empower citizens and make them responsible and accountable for the waste they create.
Our organization and its members work tirelessly to achieve positive change in society. We accept funds and donations from partner NGOs, Governments, Corporate and other partners to meet our nominal expenses, to carry out our activities. We function on a project to project basis and discuss the various facets of an assignment which is to be undertaken with the party concerned, before coming to a mutual agreement.
