Two bins One bag - What is the story here?


Two bins One bag sums up the aspirations, research, efforts and dreams of a whole lot of committed citizens working over years to find a solution to our overwhelming garbage problem. 


Segregation at source is the only way to remedy this and here is where two bins and a bag comes into picture. The ease of the formula and the way it instantly cuts down on plastic bags and the need for landfills to accommodate them has made it a resounding success. The colour coded system makes it uniform and effortless to follow. Following the best practices listed, this can be rolled out anywhere in a very short time.


From a small citizen initiative, it has grown into a movement encompassing the whole city. Swachh Bharat can really be achieved only when each one of us takes charge of the waste we generate. Be a part of the dream to transform our country!
