Garbage is the problem of everyone and everywhere right now. Our country’s population is in billions. And the second in the largest population in the world. And like a population lot of garbage is generated. We produce the highest amount of garbage in the world and surprisingly a country doesn’t has an garbage system and an garbage management policy. India’s capital New Delhi doesn’t has any environment friendly garbage treatment plants. When Delhi the most important city of India doesn’t have so we shouldn’t ask about the others. More than mentioning what more important is is is that we take the responsibility of our garbage. We should manage our garbage at homes, offices and wherever we can. Cities, towns must have highly advanced garbage treatment and recycling plants to preserve the beauty and purity of a environment. But now when we don’t have we need to come up by doing this on a personal level . We should segregate the waste as dry waste, wet waste and biomedical waste. We should use the wet waste to make organic manure or biogas. If people have their own houses have space should set up biogas plant from which organic manure is formed and also biogas is formed. They can use it for cooking instead of using LPG which is expensive. They can use it it for farming if they have space. Or else can sell them organic manure is very expensive. Inorganic waste which is dry waste should again be segregated as recyclable and non recyclable . The recyclable waste should be taken to cycle shop which can be re used. And the non recyclable waste for alternate fuel resource ARF. Biomedical waste mean sanitary waste should be given to corporation as we right now I don’t have any way to do anything good of it. We use plastic bags a lot which is wrong we should use and carry cloth bags instead of having plastic ones. Why most of the time use plastic tablecloth after get spoilt we throw it. We should use cloth made of cotton or other and avoid plastics. And by food with minimal packaging most waste is generated during weddings and functions. We should use steel or aluminium plates for snacks in steel glasses for juice, water etc. Instead of using plastic and foam ones. For decoration should use eco friendly decorations. Even flowers work well and can go for composting as well. For weddings people use plastic, form plates and glasses. So as there is no need wash utensils. But because of this a lot of plastic is collected so we can switch to steel utensils. But if they are not been able to pay the wages of the servants they should use banana leaves which can be put in biogas plants. We should use steel tumblers arivan plastic ones which can be washed and reused. People spend lots of money on wedding cards and lot of paper is also wasted instead of this we can send invitations through social media and have benefit of it. Children and people of all ages love ice creams ice creams also come in different types in which we put ice cream, ice creams in plastic cups. But we should prefer kulfis and cone filled with ice cream once. Consider making soaps and detergents in our own houses. We should perform transactions electronically so as that we can minimise the use of paper. We should minimise producing waste as much as we can. And keep this in mind that my way is my responsibility. People don’t do all this instead don’t even give their waste to the corporation. Throw it on roads ,rivers. Roads are very polluted, stinky. The garbage from rivers go in the seas and oceans and your aquatic animals eat it.and so much of birds have died because of plastic caps talk in the neck or stomach. Even this is spoilt your aquatic animals life. So it is a duty manage are waste. And from today “My waste it is My responsibility”.
