Bhoomija - Zero-waste Home Store An Initiative by Prithvi Innovations
Updated: Nov 16
A grand festival of lights, DIWALI is definitely the most alluring and auspicious occasions to be celebrated by each one of us. To make it more memorable and brighten up your day, we the team of Prithvi Innovations bring you eco-friendly ways to cherish these joyful moments with your family and friends by engaging in joyful little green acts of kindness & love for Mother Earth and our less fortunate fellowmen around us, like the waste collectors, rag pickers, slum dwellers, migrant labourers, rickshaw pullers, our maids & helping hands etc..
Though most of us share our joy & festivity with the less fortunate ones around us, by gifting goodies, food, diyas crackers, clothes, to them, which is indeed very appreciable.
But would not it feel awesome to celebrate this Diwali in new spirit and style by gifting them a lifetime gift of Clean Air, Clean Roads & pathways, Clean riverside, Clean Water and sharing some thoughts to build their immunity, improve their health, by being more conscious and cautious of any garbage that leaves our house, office, factories or industries for that matter.
How about reducing our Carbon Footprints and keeping our surroundings clean & pollution free, especially for these people who do not have choice to pull up the windows of their cars every time they pass through a heap of garbage, or who have the choice to shut their windows & doors, or have choice to put on a N95 mask, to stop the unbearable foil smell or stop the hazardous toxic gas (from burning of plastic garbage) enter their house etc.
Deprived of proper home or shelter, residing along the dirty garbage filled roadsides, pathways, railway lines, the people who are most valuable service providers to us (they pick our garbage, clean our toilets every day and help us have clean homes, build our houses, cook for us, drive us to work,) are often the ones who have to suffer because of the excessive garbage, that is generated by us especially during this competitive Covid times, due to certain rise in online shopping, excessive, glamorous, show-off packaging and what not.
Add to this, is the reckless dumping or irresponsible disposable of our garbage in mixed or non- segregated way, in the absence of abstain on the increasing extravaganzas, show-culture and over-consumerism, in the absence of awareness, concern and willingness to change our habits & mind sets.
And to top it all the lack of clear cut, well-laid down, decentralised, sustainable management & mechanisms of garbage segregation, collection and disposal or it’s timely recovery, reuse and recycling.
If the above lines seriously disturb you and make you pause, reflect and think, then you are at the right place, for we at Prithvi Innovations invite you for meaningful journey of Change and transformation which can help us all to gift aCleaner, Greener, Toxic free, Safe, Healthy, joyful and Peaceful present and future to our less fortunate fellowmen this Diwali.
