Last Saturday, 16 December 2017, our DP1 students made a trip to Choithram Sabzi Mandi in Indore on a campaign to promote a cleaner Indore as a part of their CAS initiative for Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. They were guided by Basix NGO and Nagar Nigam Indore.
The first part of their visit to Choithram Sabzi Mandi was to Nagar Nigam Indore’s City Composting Centre. Here, the students were briefed on bio-waste composting and shown composting which was already in process in a number of concrete tanks. The composting odour was rather overpowering.
Thereafter, the students were guided by members of Nagar Nigam Indore on a campaign to educate the wholesale and retail vendors in the Sabzi Mandi to (a) keep their workplaces and the entire Sabzi Mandi clean, (b) segregate bio-waste into wet and dry categories, and (c) stop using plastic and polythene bags.
The students followed the Nagar Nigam waste collection vans on foot and visited store to store educating the store owners and workers.
