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!
Why 2 Bin 1 Bag?
Uniform colour code provides consistency for the entire city.
Easy to educate housekeeping staff, maids, kids and residents.
Collection of segregated waste becomes more efficient
Creates sense of universal segregation culture.
Eliminates the need of plastic garbage bags.
