Did you ever think like what happens to our everyday waste? On an average 60-70% of household waste is organic or bio-degradable and it is rich with all different kind of nutrients. Nature since time immemorial had been recycling organic waste unless we humans started mixing waste wherein it becomes difficult for the organic waste to decompose. Nature’s ecosystem expects that entire organic waste should be decomposed so that it can merge back into soil. Practically every living organism is a composting machine capable of converting organic matter into compost. Here is simple picture to depict that:
It is no rocket science to understand that by and large something worthwhile can be made out of most of our discards, be it organic or inorganic. Thus we should make every effort to use any resource as long as we can and that is the whole emphasis in the new age concept of Circular Economy. We are today full of waste all around us because in last few decades most companies have been practising the concept of Linear Economy which most is make-use-throw model. That is not sustainable and already world is talking of course correction by adopting Circular Economy.
The key principle to undertake waste 2 worth is segregation! If we segregate at source then organic waste can be easily composted at either individual household level or community level and most of the dry waste can be converted into worthwhile goods.
