Tata Power's nationwide energy and resource conservation movement, Club Enerji, has been relentlessly working towards spreading the message of judicious use and conservation of energy across the country. In its 7th year of success, Club Enerji announced the launch of Waste Management Module’ as a part of its Resource Conservation Programme. The Resource Conservation Module lays strong emphasis on saving water, fuel, paper, and electricity, and has successfully imparted knowledge on fuel conservation, water management and energy conservation to lakhs of students.

The objective of the Waste Management module is to educate students about the repercussions of waste dumping on the environment, and its impact on the quality of soil, air and the ecosystem as a whole. The module aims to provide a platform to more than 2 lakh students to share and expand their understanding, thereby, bringing about a chain-reaction that can significantly reduce generation of waste and increase efficient waste management in the country.

Speaking on this initiative, Anil Sardana, Managing Director, Tata Power, stated, “Today’s youth are tomorrow’s decision makers, and it is vital to mobilize and educate them with the knowledge that will help bring about an important change. By mobilizing the youth with the knowledge to effectively treat waste, Club Enerji aims to spread the message further to their families and reach out to the communities at large. The module also encourages students to form their own mini clubs in their societies to reach out to more citizens.”

This year, to make the module a bigger success, a mass drive will be undertaken by the students. The students will collect plastic bottles and recycle them into t-shirts for Club Enerji’s ‘Energy Champions’. By educating young students about the ramifications of waste dumping, the module aims to inspire the young minds to inculcate basic precautionary steps in their daily lives to combat this problem.

While a lot of initiatives focus on waste reduction, effective waste management of the existing piles of waste around the world remains a topic of concern. The Waste Management Module addresses the root cause of the problem – ‘how waste is generated, how it impacts the environment, its long term consequences, and the small steps that can be taken to curb and treat it effectively’.
