  • The Save Soil Campaign

    Why Save Soil? Save Soil is a global movement launched by Sadhguru, to address the soil crisis by bringing together people from around the world to stand up for Soil Health, and supporting leaders of all nations to institute national policies and actions toward increasing the organic content in cultivable Soil. FOOD CRISIS In 20 years, 40% less food is expected to be produced for 9.3 billion people. Poor soil leads to poor nutritional value. Today's fruits and vegetables already contain 90% fewer nutrients. 2 billion people suffer from nutritional deficiencies leading to multitude of diseases. WATER SCARCITY Depleted soils cannot absorb and regulate water flows. Lack of water retention leads to water scarcity, droughts & floods. Organic matter can hold up to 90% of its weight in water and release it slowly over time. This is a big help in drought-prone areas. Oh Soil The fragrance of the soil Somehow is more tenderness to me than the fancy fragrance of the flower The strength and sensitivity of life held in the soil lets off waves of passion of a different sort. Passion not of a person but of my species that has gone insensitive to all that nurtures it and absorbs it at its end. As I walk barefoot, I break down with Passions so profound that it defies all descriptions. Oh' Soil, My life POEM BY SADHGURU The above information is enough for us to conclude that our earth is depreciating in the terms of soil. The soil fertility and quantity is being lost day by day if not acted upon now, it may take decades, if not centuries, to bring its fertility back. If we start saving the soil today, only in a matter of few years, this phenomena could be easily reversed, but it is upon us how we wish it to be reversed. #Blog6 #SaveSoil #Sadhguru Image and Text based on the official website

  • Reverse Logistics

    Reverse logistics is a method used by many e-waste managing organisations to collect and sort e-waste. Today, we are going to talk in detail about this method Reverse Logistics uses the fundamental of collecting the waste from the consumer and directly supplying to the producer. This may include resale or retail of the waste. The device after the end of its service has several ways: the use of individual parts of the device (the insides of obsolete gadgets can often be seen in the electronics markets); the use of individual parts as raw materials; processing and disposal of toxic waste. This different parts are made by different manufacturers, but there is one thing common to all that is they are all part of one finished product and can be reused in the same product. This makes the basis of reverse logistics. Though the parts are different, but the product is made by a single brand which allows us to categorise it. Though it can take months even years to sort ewaste in such a huge quantity, but it all makes sense in the end. Once it is categorised, it is gradually sent to the manufacturer at nominal cost of the labour in sorting out. As the manufacturers are familiar with their products and require it to make new ones, most of the ewaste is reused making it easy for us to be reused rather than trashed making it harmful for the environment, even depleting our resources image source netsuite.com #Blog5 #ReverseLogistics

  • Impact of the UN

    The SCYCLE program Since January 2022 Sustainable Cycles is a program under UNITAR's division for the planet. The main objective of SCYCLE is to facilitate sustainable societies. One of its motives is to design and analyze sustainable patterns for EEE. SYCLE has had the vision to alleviate the environmental load by decreasing e-waste production. Dr. Ruediger Kuehr was appointed Head of the UNITAR Office Bonn in June 2020 and is also the manager of SCYCLE Categories of SCYCLE Quantification Waste Management Systems Partnership Initiatives Training and Education The E-Waste Academy The e-waste academy is a undertaking held under the SCYCLE. The E-Waste Academy – Managers Edition (EWAM) aims to be the foremost forum available for stakeholders involved in e-waste system design as well as implementing solutions to share their knowledge, interact with experts and develop collaborative partnerships fostering long-term, sustainable solutions, and approaches on all policy-related areas related in e-waste, from policy to technology to economics to social aspects. EWAM offers participants a diverse curriculum in an innovative framework including lectures, workshops, participant presentations, group projects, and site visits with an international interdisciplinary faculty and experienced facilitators. In June 2012 the GeSI & StEP E-Waste Academy (EWA) 2012 took place in Accra, Ghana. The E-waste Academy changed its name to E-waste Academy-Managers Edition (EWAM) in January 2013. The second initiative, the E-Waste Academy – Scientists Edition (EWAS) is a pioneering concept in the development of capacity for e-waste research and management to foster multi-stakeholder partnerships and establish opportunities for continued collaboration on e-waste research, and policy and management. EWAS brings together young e-waste researchers from around the world, looking at solving e-waste from different disciplinary perspectives. It aims to be the foremost forum available to young scientists to share their knowledge, interact with experts from academia, industry, and policy, and develop collaborative partnerships. Three editions of the EWAS so far, between 2009 and 2011, have been extremely successful. The Impact The UN is trying its level best to reduce the slope of e-waste generated and has developed new designs for the recycling process, moreover, it is suggesting and trying to seize the opportunity to tackle e-waste. Still, e-waste is a huge concern and according to the UN, e-waste generation will double or even triple if generated at the same rate. #Blog4 #UNimpact

  • Our Method | E-Zero

    Our Method Reverse Logistics ​ Reverse logistics is a method used by many tech companies to recycle E-Waste generated by their products. It is done by the companies to maintain the environmental equation. The reverse logistics method is the identifying and proper recycling of E-Waste. ​ The E-Waste donated to us is of end number of different brands, so this E-Waste cannot be directly given to a specific corporation for recycling. This just may be recycling of E-Waste but does not add significance to the E-Waste. ​ That's when E-Zero comes in, we identify and separate the E-Waste generated by the companies and give back the E-Waste to respective recycling factories the companies own at minimal costs, and these funds are donated to charity worldwide. ​ Though reverse logistics is an effective manner to recycle E-Waste, it still has some cons. There is a high chance that you get a high logistics cost. Nonetheless, problems like the uncertainty of rational returns, meagre labor to handle the returns. What comes under E-Waste We know that electronic stuff, which is not usable, comes under E-Waste. Wait a minute that's it. Briefly, that's it, but if we talk on broader grounds electronic waste can be categorized into many types: ICT and Telecommunications Equipment Office Electronics Large Household Appliances Small Household Appliances Consumer Equipment Medical Equipment Toys leisure and sports equipment
