Have you ever worried about the waste that you throw????
Have you ever saddened by the worst situation of dump-yards????
Have you ever lost without knowing how better waste management can be done?????
Here is the way….
HAVE A VISIT TO YOUR LOCAL DUMP SITE TO IDENTIFY WHICH PRODUCTS END UP IN THE LANDFILLS OR ON THE SIDE OF THE ROADS.
FIND OUT WHO PRODUCES THESE PRODUCTS.
TAKE A PICTURE OF THEIR PRODUCT AND POST IT ON FACEBOOK.
WRITE AN EMAIL TO THEIR CORPORATE OFFICE (Google it) ASKING THEM TO BUYBACK THEIR WASTE.
DID YOU KNOW THAT IN MANY FOREIGN COUNTRIES, MNCs ARE PAYING MONEY TO COLLECT OR BUY BACK THE WASTE THAT THEIR PRODUCTS GENERATE? SO WHY NOT INDIA?
SEE THE EXAMPLE OF TERRACYCLE WHO HAS AGREEMENTS WITH MANY COMPANIES TO BUYBACK THEIR WASTE FOR THEM.
COMPANIES IN INDIA CAN USE THEIR CSR MONEY TO DO THIS TOO.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT EPR IS???
EPR stands for Extended Producer Responsibility. OECD defines Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) as an environmental policy approach in which a producer’s responsibility for a product is extended to the post-consumer stage of a product’s life cycle. An EPR policy is characterised by: (1) the shifting of responsibility (physically and/or economically; fully or partially) upstream toward the producer and away from municipalities; and (2) the provision of incentives to producers to take into account environmental considerations when designing their products
