We’re the only species on Earth that uses Fresh Water to transport waste!

Category:Solid Waste Management,Wastewater Recycling Tags : 

Nature supplies us water in abundance right at our door steps, without the ‘kilometers & kilometers’ of pipe line!

It sounds crazy, especially when we do not have enough to drink. A mere look at our daily water consumption, will tell us where we stand and what the future can be, if we continue like this.

Though freshwater consumption varies from place to place and community to community, an average estimate per person per day could be about 135 liters. Break could be estimated as,

  • Drinking & Cooking: ~15 Liters
  • Washing & Bathing: 60 Liters
  • Flushing: 60 Liters

All this freshwater ends up in drain after usage, since it has organic wastes (food for bacteria), it imbalances any water ecosystem like lake or river where it is let in to. Polluting the drinking water sources.

What is the price we pay for our drinking water?
– almost nothing at the moment! The actual price will be known only when the ground water is gone.

Is there a way out?
– yes, there is.

First Stage Implementation: Wastewater recycling
Second Stage Implementation: Harvest rain water to Drink, Cook, Wash & Bathe.

With above two implemented, we are safe and in sync with nature.

Water Crisis is only a water management issue. Nature supplies us water in abundance right at our door steps, without the ‘kilometers & kilometers’ of pipe line!

Disappearing Adjutant Storks discovered at Landfill site

Category:Press,Related News,Solid Waste Management Tags : 

These are highly endangered species and only 2,000 of them left in the world..

In the picture above you will see Adjutant Storks feeding on landfill. You could walk up to them, touch them and they won’t fly off. So used to all the men and machines working around them. Not sure if this is their natural habitat, but definitely was a frightening sight, it was as if they got addicted to something!

Human is the only race that has such an alarmingly growing footprint that is engulfing all natural life.

We have no fresh water because we dump our waste right in to the water that we drink, We are short of food because our soils have become infertile. We do have the biomass that can make it fertile but we pack it in to trash bags and send them to landfill!

Such degraded states can only create cycle of poverty and ecological destruction and we pass this poverty from one generation to the next generation. If we continue to consume goods & services the way we do, we will turn everything in to a desert for our children and our children’s children and generations to come in the future.

How unsustainable have we become was one thought that kept running through our minds, way back home. Only if we could get on a process of restoration, the next generations, could have better diet, healthcare, education & rich social life.

@riteways, we think about this all the time.
Over the years, we have developed products and services that can help us achieve our self sustainability goal, step by step, individual by individual. Feel free to contact us.
