  • Reflection Question
    Community Host a Watch Party
    How does hosting a watch party help you to get to know your guests, connect them to the cause you are focusing on, and build your community?

    I believe everyone deep-down  wants to do good and help and build the community.so hosting a party and connecting with them brings out the right positive intentions to do good.
  • Reflection Question
    Community Research Local Waste Sites

    The community close to the landfill have been long impacted because of the ecological damage caused by the land filling.

    Community Estimate My Plastic Consumption and Go #PlasticNeutral
    What did you find out about your plastic consumption by using the calculator? What did or didn't surprise you?

    The number of single use plastics we are supposed to be using is far too much and the amount of waste generated is astronomical for a single household monthly.

    Volunteering shows the community there is a bigger purpose to everything. Every-time we volunteer we feel more purposeful due to the action of giving.

    It’s not been easy to do it during the lockdown. However the challenge is the timing of it and trying in all ways to get it done is the objective.
  • Reflection Question
    Personal Care Pearly Whites
    Currently most of the packaging for toothpaste is plastic. How can you advocate for more alternatives through your purchasing power and influence in community?

    Ramesh Srinivasan's avatar
    Ramesh Srinivasan 7/12/2020 7:21 AM
    Moving away from plastic is the motivation and buying products which advocate that for our toothpaste is the way forward. The consistency and regular use makes it an absolute need and showing how we can reduce plastic in toothpaste will be the biggest win for all of us.
  • Reflection Question

    What are the economic and personal benefits of switching to bar soap/shampoo/conditioner or refillable bottle options?

    Ramesh Srinivasan 7/12/2020 7:19 AM
    Do most of us know a big part of pricing a product comes from packing and packaging? Once we know it we can immediately understand how to be smart and cost effective by using reusable option or moving to the tried and tested method of bar soaps and shampoo/conditioner.
  • Reflection Question
    Personal Care Pretty oh so Pretty
    How can you advocate for the importance of reducing packaging to the rest of your friends, family and larger community?

    Show them the way on how I do it and how easy is it to make the shift. Nothing works like action and everytime  we show someone how it’s done the chances of them following through becomes really high.
