Many people even labeled us bhangar wali, plastic wali, bottle wali (junk dealers),” says Namita Kapale, who, along with Kalyani Bharmbe, has built an eco-friendly house using 16,000 plastic water bottles.
Finding a meaningful use for excess #plastic waste, the duo# constructed the house in #SambhajiNagar near Daulatabad. They used cow dung, soil, plastic bottles, and 12-13 tonnes of non-recyclable plastic to build the house on a nearly 4,000 square feet field.

Transition towards a #sustainable (solarpunk) #future? Then we first have to rewrite the rules of the game. The creation of #money, political economics and its rules are designed in such way it will always concentrate power within the same elite. Image
It doesn’t matter much which #governance model you have as long as any system depends on so called neutral central #banks issuing money and commercial banks granting debt. You ll always have a system that creates #inequality, exploitation & destruction. Image
We should rewrite the rules, #monetary policy should be a key #political topic. I made this #comic once to show alternative rules about ownership of land, hoarding and speculation and land-use. A #Georgist approach. Image

I’m delighted to announce that my provocative piece on the impact of #plasticpollution on the #tropics is the first published article in Journal of Tropical Futures published by @SAGEPublishers…

#plasticfree #plastic #plasticwaste #plastictreaty
Unsustainable #plastic production, use and mismanagement have resulted in increased #plasticpollution in the environment threatening #sustainability, especially in the #tropics.

#sustainabledevelopment #sustainabilitymatters #singleuseplastic
Countries in the #tropics have been disproportionally impacted by #plasticpollution due to imports of #plasticwaste from developed countries, or because tropical Small Island Developing States have become overwhelmed by #singleuseplastics used widely in the tourism sector.

Can you effectively manage wastewater in your locality?

Check out these snippets from the comic book “Neera, Jalaj and the Case of Untreated Waste”, that tell us how we can achieve sustainable #wastemanagement ...🧵
10-year-old Jalaj was curious about how efficiently waste can be used.

He kept thinking about the technology that helped #recycle and reuse it. Jalaj wondered how he could replicate the system in his own #environment.
First, Jalaj tackled the solid waste by building a toilet with a twin leach pit, with the help of his friends. A twin leach pit is a toilet that can manage faecal waste locally.

Here are some ways you can make your layout/apartment/gated community more water sustainable...🧵
Here’s the challenge:

In a layout, how can we convert water from an individual, private resource, to an #equitable resource?
Imagine everybody using multiple straws to procure water from the same glass.

Is there an alternative to everybody sinking a #borewell, competing with each other to draw #water? How can this alternative be #sustainable?

#CeterumCenseo Russia must be defeated.

Europe and the rest of the democratic world should collectively realize, soonest, that #Ukraine has now put #democracy and its idea of collective security to a test: can autocratic states overrun smaller democracies one by one, or not?
Democracies are inherently not well suited for territorial and resource aggrandizement. But autocracies can be.

On the other hand, democracies ARE inherently well-suited for human rights and liberty. They are good in itself, but also promote scientific and economic development.
Democracy prevailed in the 1900s largely thanks to these advantages and the happy accident that the resources of the United States remained broadly speaking on the side of democracy when it really mattered.

There’s #conflict in change. And right now, we’re going through many changes. Shifts to #renewables, digitization, distributed systems, transparency etc.

When trying to better understand how these transitions and conflicts work, I find the 3 Horizons Model to be helpful. 🧵👇
The 1st horizon signifies business as usual, which is losing its fit for purpose.

Some of this may continue into the future, but we know it is in decline for sure.
Horizon 3 is the viable #future we can envision.

It holds our hopes and dreams of what the future could be, and one that is possible with #innovation and progress.

Too many people focus on the problem. 🌪📉😖

If you want to #innovate when creating a new product, approach, or system, it's best to start with the ideal. 🤔

Of course we must understand the problem we're trying to solve, but the ideal is the path to the solution. Here's why🧵
Let's start with our brains. They actually function better when in a creative, optimistic state. 🌈

While fear, anxiety, & depression impair our ability to problem-solve and act effectively. 😨

This isn't about Pollyanna optimism, it's about solutions…
Silicon Valley startups, product designers, & creators have found over & over again that starting with the ideal helps them #design better solutions.

This is one of the core pillars of #DesignThinking. Imagine all that's desirable, then narrow down to what's feasible + viable. Image

"The proliferation of many EVs in #Jaipur inspired us to start our venture,"says Nikhil Gunda and Meher Sai, who have launched #GearHeadMotors (GHM) that builds low-cost e-bikes that can charge in 45 minutes. @ev_ghm

#StartUp #Entrepreneurs #EV #GoGreen #Sustainable #EcoFriendly Image
“We made our own detachable battery box made of aluminium alloy. It’s anodised, which acts as a cooling paint. In Indian temperatures, when the battery heats up, the battery box absorbs and transmits the heat outside.
Our 5.8 Ah battery charges from 0 to 80% in 45 minutes with our 6 A fast charger."

Today, the startup manufactures #ebikes with 80% of the components developed in-house and has sold more than 100 units while raising an amount of 1 crore at #SharkTankIndia.

When #Delhi girl Priyanka Tiwari married in 2019, she shifted to a village called Rajpur in #Uttar Pradesh. Her first impression of the place was not pleasant.⁠
The lack of a proper management system and functionalities in the village made it difficult to live in.

Improper waste management, damaged drains, and a lack of crematoriums were some of the issues.⁠

Priyanka, a mass communication graduate, felt the urge to bring about changes in the whole area.⁠

(1/5) Every year, millions of tons of farm #stubble and crop waste are burned in India — resulting in toxic, air-polluting #smog.
(2/5) Founded by #Pune-based siblings Shubham Singh and Himansha Singh, the #startup #Craste helps prevent this from happening by buying the stubble from farmers and creating products like tree-free #packaging and formaldehyde-free particle boards used to build #furniture.
(3/5) Craste does this through a patented proprietary process - Fumasolv - that separates three main components from crop waste, which are cellulose, lignin and hemicellulose.

“I received much more cow dung than I required in my farmland. That’s when I started thinking of an alternative for not letting it go to waste.”, says P Ganesan, an organic farmer who has been making #artefacts for the past five years, using nothing but cow dung and cow urine.⁠ Image
Hailing from Perungamanallur village in Madurai, 52-YO Ganesan has invented a unique and organic way of crafting handicrafts.⁠

“I craft it by my hands. No machinery or mould is involved, and I don’t add ingredients other than cow dung and cow urine.
It is 100 per cent natural and eco-friendly.”⁠

Currently, Ganesan makes over 150 different products, including utility and decorative items. A 6-foot tall Buddha statue made using 30 kg of #cowdung is one of their masterpieces created by him.

A sustainable finance taxonomy is a critical policy instrument for identifying if and to what extent economic activities contribute to international goals and national commitments aligned with the #ParisAgreement and/or the #SDGs. 🧵 Image
Taxonomies can increase the #resilience of financial systems by enhancing the management of #sustainability risks and contribute to closing the funding gap for implementing #sustainableactivities.
There has been enormous momentum across the world to systematically integrate sustainability into financial decision making. However, channeling capital into sustainability-aligned investments requires a clear definition and common understanding of what qualifies as #sustainable

This afternoon, myself and others will set out the case for #planning reform.

#LevellingUp #LURB #Housing @michaelgove @lucyfrazermp @luhc @PA @thetimes @timesredbox

For sure, we don’t like top-down targets. But most of all, we want a better way of doing things: a planning system with #communities, regeneration and the environment at its heart.

We want a planning system that is environmentally #sustainable, rooted in community support and used to regenerate out towns and cities, not hollow them out.
