Waste doesn’t have to spread disease, or contribute to pollution and climate change. Segregated in three bins and managed in a sustainable way, waste becomes a valuable resource.
Let’s show the world that the stigma around waste is misplaced and encourage more people to integrate waste segregation in their daily lives. Let source segregation and waste management be a part of our communication within our families and communities.
The Alag Karo Photography competition is conceived with the specific aim of creating awareness on source segregation of waste and waste management.
We’re here to celebrate the wisdom and creativity in source segregation of waste and its management.
