We are Taking Small Steps to Make Earth Better Planet
3RZeroWaste® was founded with a clear belief to do things differently when it comes to Waste Management. We saw a wonderful opportunity for the over 1.8 Billion tons of Waste lying in India since Independence and 80 Million Tons being generated every year, most of which is being landfilled or burned.
We want to reduce this pile of waste by reusing it as an alternative to fossil-based feedstock. By doing so, 3RZeroWaste® strongly contributes to the Circular Economy and improves the environmental footprint by saving energy and reducing CO2 emissions. It also responds to the needs of consumers and brand owners who increasingly call for sustainable products. We are fully committed to UN Sustainable Development Goals SDG 2030.

Friends I visited Shiv’s unit today. I can vouch that he is doing an amazing job. I am very impressed with the dedication, patience and commitment that he is showing towards the environment and the world we live in. He needs your support and encouragement. Please give him all of that. Thanks.
“I got the opportunity to work as an intern at 3R zero waste on EPR. I have valuable learning during the internship period. I learned that how EPR works & established EPR schemes worldwide. I realize that EPR is very important for our country to resolve plastic pollution issues, especially of MLP. I feel that quality internships are essential to developing key skills and for future career growth.”
Zero Waste Management: A Brilliant Idea to Protect the Environment
Have you ever wondered what zero waste is? As the term suggests, nil waste means no wastage of any product. Is it possible to eliminate the wastage of products? It is possible with the right approach. The entire planning of the process to ensure the minimum wastage of resources is called “Zero Waste Management.”
Consider an example of cooking vegetables where people usually throw out the peels or the non-edible parts of the veggies in dustbins. But instead of throwing it out, if people bury those peels and the non-edible portion of the veggies in the soil of their garden or small pot, it will be a part of the composting process. The compost will provide fertility to the soil and aid in the conservation of nature. This is a true example of zero waste management, where the waste is used up by nature. This created an absolute absence of waste products.
It was a small example. Millions of waste products are produced daily in various industries and companies. In such a scenario, they need waste management systems to reduce the production of waste products.
Zero Waste Management works on three principles-
These three principles are interrelated with each other. It is essential to reduce the usage of harmful products and encourage the usage of eco-friendly materials. The products should be reused repeatedly until their last level to reduce wastage. It reduces the production of greenhouse gasses in the following ways-
- Maximum Recycling of products- Waste Management Recycling is one of the critical features of transforming waste or garbage into valuable products.
- Minimizing the production of waste products from the resources.
- Reducing the consumption of products in excess amounts (Consumption of products only as much required).
- Focussing on 3Rs, i.e., reduce, reuse, and recycle.
- Purchasing sustainable and eco-friendly products.
- Eliminating the requirements of landfills and incinerators.
- Reducing the consumption of energy in terms of various processes like extraction and transportation of raw materials.
Waste Management Systems
Waste Management systems are a group of strategies used by various organizations to reuse, dispose of, and prevent the formation of waste products. They use the following methods for disposing of the waste products-
- Limited Consumption
Simply put, Waste Management Systems involve measures for managing the waste in its life cycle. The life cycle of waste involves all the processes of waste generation, disposal, and recovery.
One of the crucial parts of this system is Waste Management Recycling. The term “recycle” refers to the various operations performed to recover the product from the waste materials. In other words, recycling involves reprocessing waste materials into valuable products. It benefits humanity as well as the environment. There are three types of recycling namely-
- Mechanical Recycling
- Energy Recycling
- Chemical Recycling
One prominent example of Waste Management Recycling is the transformation of used papers into toilet paper or paper plates. This immensely helps to reduce the cutting of trees for manufacturing papers for everyday purposes like packaging or rough work.
The concept of Zero Waste Management requires innovative designs and execution of sustainable plants to reduce the production of waste products from resources. Thus, it is a brilliant idea to protect the environment.
