There is a need to make waste management system 'simpler' at 'source level' 

Framing the Problem


Segregation and Awareness

Reasons of this problem

  • Why is there a lack of awareness?

  • No proper medium to understand the difference between wet and dry waste.

  • No strong campaigns by the Government

  • Irresponsibility towards the environment.

Why segregation is a problem?

  • Collectors awareness level about the segregation is not up to themark.

  • No training to the collectors

  • Ethnicity of the country matters in the case of wastemanagement

  • Labels being confusing to the generators makes it difficult for the collectors to segregate.

Significance of problems

  • Why should we address Segregation?

  • Segregated waste is gold.

  • Profit is generated by treating the waste properly.

  • Garbage not properly disposed would create a problem for citizens.

Possible Solution

Let the product speak for itself !

Logo on the packaging will help consumers understand and decide which what go in what bin. The logo would describe both the packaging and the product inside the packaging and where we should throw each one.

This will help in segregation at the source level especially where people do not understand which is dry and wet waste. This logo is graphic element so no language barrier and can be used in all countries.

The logo here, tells about the kind of waste the packaging  is. In this case it says that it is dry waste

The logo in this section mentions what kind of waste is the content inside.

Over here, it tells that the content inside is organic waste or wet waste.
