It must seem like I went quiet 🤫 for a while. Truth be told, sometimes there’s way too much going on in terms of work and I simply don’t have the mind space or energy to post. But here I am, back again! For those of you who missed my Insta stories, here is a peek into how I celebrated the end of Zero Waste Week. Two weeks ago, I did two zero waste talks at @naz_foundation for nearly 70 kids and adults. Naz Foundation was established in the 90s and has been actively advocating for the rights of the LGBTQ 🏳️🌈 community and people with HIV/AIDS. I spent a whole day at Naz and talked about my personal journey to zero waste with their entire staff, care home kids and friends 😊 I even wore my newly repurposed sari dress 👗 to the talk 😬to share that it it’s possible to buy less and make do with what we have. The Naz building is beautiful - it is painted off white and green. It has a swing set and grapefruit trees 🌳 at the entrance 😍 It houses the Naz office and a care home for over 20 kids. They have 3 dogs 🐕 They use solar power during winters to heat water 💦 for the care home residents and have a green terrace. The best part is they compost all their wet waste. They send it to a farm where it is converted into manure 👏In the first session, the majority of workshop participants were young girls who are sports coaches to adolescents. I had a lot of fun with them when we did an exercise on identifying and sorting different kinds of waste. Some of them shared how they have been using low waste hacks in their villages and homes 🏠 for ages. The kids already knew half of the stuff about waste segregation. They are wonderful 💚 Now all of them together are going to make some more green changes at Naz. I am excited to see what comes out of this experience. In the future, I hope I can co-create a richer learning journey about zero waste which is based on experiential learning. If you were to attend a zero waste talk/workshop, what are the 3 things you’d like to learn?
