CHENNAI: That city environment enthusiasts meet Indira Kumar of Home Exnora regularly to chart a path to solve the ever growing problem of waste management is proof that he is deeply into conservation. Yes, he has been practising Zero Waste Management at home.

He has a rooftop garden, a green cap on the rooftop, an organic farm, a rooftop farm and a facility for garden waste composting at his house; he has also developed simple, efficient, easy-to-work-with models for all the above, which can be directly implemented in homes or apartment complexes.  He stresses the need for a green cap on the rooftop as the surface of buildings absorbs heat, and urges people to cultivate their own vegetables as those in the market are highly polluted.

He was inspired to go in for a zero waste house after watching plants and fields dying in his village due to pesticides.

He wants organic waste to be recycled.  On the Central government move for fast-track clearance for infrastructure projects, Kumar says, “It is very bad.” A thorough check is needed into whether a project will affect the environment or not and people’s opinion should be taken into consideration before giving the clearance, he says.
