Story


Trashonomics by SWMRT, is a play on the words ‘Trash’ and ‘Economics’ and is about the study of solid waste and its environmental, health and financial impact.
We live in a world where it is becoming, increasingly difficult to live a life of harmony with nature and our environment. The convenience of the ‘use and throw’ culture has become so deeply ingrained in our daily lives that it seems almost impossible to think of another way to be.
The Earth as we know it, is changing and it is imperative that children, tomorrow’s citizens are able to revisit and rethink some of the flawed habits that brought us to the brink and to understand how our welfare is dependent on the earth and its well being. Children are the best change makers and this book aims to empower them to lead the change by redefining the historical narrative on waste as something to be thrown away.
It will help them understand the importance of waste segregation and the absolute necessity of the three R’s- Reduce, Reuse and Recycle- given the current obsession with disposables. It will also introduce them to the simple process of composting and help them see their food waste as a resource that can feed them as well as rejuvenate the earth.
So far the cost of creating the booklet has been born out of our personal pockets, however we found that there is a lot of demand across India, and would like to raise funds to translate into other Indian languages and to promote it nation wide
