Sustainable and ecologically friendly activities, and psyches continue to be part of the lifestyle and culture in India.
India has a culture of hoarding (in case anything comes in handy) as well as thriftiness (re-use and hand-me-downs). It is not uncommon to see an old cloth being used as a duster in an Indian household. It defines India’s interest in re-defining the old, to create new.
Is it necessary for India to achieve sustainability?
We are beginning to see the consequences of unsustainable lifestyles, production and consumption practices. As the human population grows, resources become scarce.
From declining pollinators jeopardizing food security to air and water pollution jeopardizing quality of life, to land shortages and degradation jeopardizing agriculture and biodiversity, we are the culprits.
Is India pursuing recycling and reuse activities in order to attain sustainability?
"The motto of 3R - Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle - is at the heart of any vision for humanity's sustainable growth," adds Prime Minister Modi.
Preserving biodiversity, living sustainably, and coexisting peacefully with environment, have been the guiding concept of the Indian way of life, and have always been part of the teachings of ancient scriptures.
Why do we require the 3 Rs?
Apart from having a positive impact on the planet we all live in, there are numerous more significant reasons for us to practice the 3Rs, such as:
· Saves Energy
Generally, recycling uses less energy in the production process than producing goods, from raw materials. Recycling aluminium, for example, saves 95% of the energy required, to create aluminium cans from freshly mined bauxite.
· Less raw material usage
Recycling reduces reliance on virgin raw materials in the manufacture of new products, while also reducing pressures on increasingly scarce natural resources, and raw materials such as minerals, wood, and petroleum distillates, hence preventing environmental damage.
· Pollution Reduction
Recycling significantly reduces air pollution, water pollution, and land pollution caused by abandoned or burned waste. It also minimizes the demand for landfills, lowering greenhouse gas emissions. Recycling can undoubtedly help to keep items out of landfills, by giving materials that can be reused to make new products.
Waste recycling and reuse play an important part in sustainability, because they lessen the negative influence that human activities have on the environment.
You may be an individual consumer or be part of a commercial organization or government, but you have a crucial role in making recycling a success.
The world is a wonderful place, and it would be unjust to leave it tired and impoverished, for future generations.
How can we help?
Netsol Water contributes to the environment by offering waste, wastewater, and solid waste management solutions, such as organic waste composter processors, which are meant to reduce and recycle organic waste, and turn it into organic manure and fuel.
We provide wastewater treatment systems, such as RO Plants, STP, ETP, among other things, which recycle wastewater through physical, biological, and chemical processes.
