List all the wastes that you generate, at home, school or during
your Trips to other places, could you very easily reduce? Which
would be Difficult or rather impossible to reduce?
Wastes generated at home include plastic bags, paper
napkin, toiletries, kitchen wastes (such as peelings of
vegetables and fruits, tea leaves), domestic sewage, glass, etc.
Wastes generated at schools include waste paper, plastics,
vegetable and fruit peels, food wrappings, sewage etc.
Wastes generated at trips or picnics include plastic,
paper, vegetable and fruit peels, disposable cups, plates, spoons
Yes, wastes can be easily reduced by the judicious use of the
above materials. Wastage of paper can be minimized by writing on
both sides of the paper and by using recycled paper. Plastic and
glass waste can also be reduced by recycling and re-using. Also,
substituting plastics bags with biodegradable jute bags can
reduce wastes generated at home, school, or during trips.
Domestic sewage can be reduced by optimizing the use of water
while bathing, cooking, and other household activities.
Non- biodegradable wastes such as plastic, metal, broken glass,
etc are difficult to decompose because micro-organisms do not
have the ability to decompose them.
