Pune : Eco-Factory Foundation; a non-profit making organization supported by leading spices and food products manufacturer Pravin Masalewale, has come up with an unique concept of ‘Waste Management Park and Learning Centre’ at Suhana Farms, Yawat; about 45 km from Pune. The Project was inaugurated at the hands of Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar. Board of Directors of Eco Factory Foundation Rajkumar Chordia , Vishal Chordia , Anand Chordia and Founder of Pravin Masalewale Hukmichand Chordia were present on the occasion. The unique theme based project has been taken up to bring awareness about eco-friendly and sustainable life-style solutions to citizens. The project also includes organic and natural sustainable farming practices at the site. The park demonstrates how waste can be re used to prepare useful products and eco friendly processes and methods which can be easily implemented everywhere. Various NGOs have been given a platform to demonstrate their eco friendly work here. The demonstrations here are useful not only for large campuses and schools but also small apartments, societies and bungalows and therefore would be useful for people at large.
Prakash Javadekar said that with the rising amount of different types of wastes like solid waste , plastic , e waste , hazardous etc waste management has become an issue of lifestyle. The Eco-factory foundation project will go along way in educating people on ‘Waste to Wealth’ approach and change the mindset of people.
Rajkumar Chordia Board of Director Eco Factory Foundation said that our Prime Minister’s ambitious project of ‘Swachha Bharat’ can only be realized if we all participate and take ownership of the environment around us. Also, it is important to support the agriculture and farming sector which is a backbone of our economy and has been through rough times in the past decade due to climatic changes. Being inter-related, the degeneration of agriculture and environment that has a major impact not just on the economy but food security and health, needs to be addressed seriously to ensure welfare of our future generations.
Vishal R. Chordia Board of Director Eco Factory Foundation is of the opinion that as an organisation we have always been ethical, innovative and sensitive in our approach and have always strived for the betterment of people/society at large by offering good quality products. We firmly believe in creating value for each buyer equally valuing his presence in our ecosystem. As companies/economies grow, it leads to increase in generation of waste but we have been able to sharpen our vision on processes leading to innovative ways in efficient handling of waste matter.
Anand R. Chordia, Board of Director Eco Factory Foundation speaking about the project said that Suhana Farms is specially designed considering the increasing importance of ecology and approach of wealth from day-to-day waste is showcased. As an organization, we are constantly working on the waste produced in our different factories and try to convert it into more useful products or dispose it off in eco-friendly way. In this process, we learnt about many different individuals, companies, manufacturers who are working in this field. All the data we have today has been displayed here. The whole idea is to increase ownership of citizens in environment. The Fun and Learn experience will also help citizens to implement the same system in their society or household in a very simple way.
He added that our greening campus work has already been implemented at SNDT college and Gokhale institute will also start it soon.
