If I change how I buy, consume and throw, will it really make things better?YES. IT WILL, HERE’S WHY We show you how your ‘small actions’ make a significant difference to the big picture.
Know your power!Not much for picketing and protesting? Well, you don't have to hold up a sign or march a rally to stand up for what you believe in. Get informed about the products you buy, their ingredients, packaging, embodied energy, environmental and social impact. Consumer choices do influence what companies produce and what retailers sell, so let your voice be heard in every purchase. It's about how you spend your hard earned money!
Reach out for:
- local fresh produce
- products with local, organic ingredients
- products with the least amount of harmful packaging
- products without phony advertising.
- brands that encourage you to buy less (whose products last)
Your purchase power can create change!

Appropriate collection models to be applied based on context of each city. Allocating space for transfer points, informal recycling, sanitary incineration, mercury bulb recycling. Facilities to be put in place for informal and formal workers.

May the bag be with you!
How many times do we need to be told this! Put a bag in your bag, put many bags in your car, scooter, cycle. Put a bag in your child’s bag. Put many bags near the door, in your supermarket billing counter store, anywhere, everywhere.
But do not, do not, carry plastic bags. Can’t be that hard.
