If you are environmentally conscious and looking for options to lead a zero or minimum waste lifestyle, Namma Green Sandhai is where you want to be on March 2nd, between 3 pm and 7 pm.

The sandhai is yet another community initiative by Namma Ooru Foundation (NOF), to encourage mid sized entrepreneurs dealing with environment-friendly, sustainable alternatives. NOF is organising the sandhai at Adyar Shastri Nagar Welfare Association Community Hall, as part of the organisation’s 4th anniversary celebrations.

“The sandhai will have eco-friendly products or alternatives ranging from cloth diapers, cloth sanitary pads to organic baked goodies with eco friendly packaging, wooden cutlery, biodegradable tableware among the few,” said Viji Ganesh, a volunteer with NOF.

A range of interesting and informative programmes are scheduled for March 2nd, to propagate smart waste management goals among citizens. Discussions will also be held on Tamil Nadu’s plastic ban, sustainable menstrual methods and waste segregation. 

“We will present a case study on Jains Sasvat, an apartment in Adambakkam, that is successfully segregating and composting biodegradable waste. The apartment with 92 houses is into 100 percent waste processing, thus procuring 300 kilos of manure in 15 days,” said Viji Ganesh.
