Local NGO throws ‘garbage” parties for waste management awareness
Want to learn about recycling and segregation? Attend a garbage party
Kuppai or garbage parties are hosted by Namma Ooru Foundation (NOF) where participants have to bring different types of waste to attend. The idea behind the party is to offer waste segregation and recycling solutions to apartment complexes.
NOF is working towards creating zero-waste environment through waste parties, where return gifts are bins and waste kits.
At the first kuppai party, 92 households were able to compost 60 kg of wet waste.
The residents of the households have also managed to reduce landfill load by 5 tonnes in 102 days.
Namma Ooru Foundation is located at: Thiruvanmiyur
