Shuddham is a registered NGO located in Pondicherry, South India. The members of Shuddham are creating a model for the “Beautiful India” movement – a movement to create a zero-waste environment.
5 years ago, the members of Shuddham started with one street, going door-to-door to educate the households on the value of segregating waste into three streams – compostable, recylable, and hazardous. Segregation turns waste into resources. “Green” waste is vermicomposted, resulting in valuable castings and vermi-wash which are sold to gardeners. Paper, cardboard, plastics, and other recyclables are sorted and then sold to recyclers for reuse. Hazardous waste is disposed of safely.
Today, Shuddham is poised to take over the municipal contract to clean the entire Raj Bhavan ward of Pondicherry, including the much visited “Beach” Road. Efforts are underway to experiment with new ways of using the resources generated by the citizens and industries of Pondicherry.
Shuddham is located at 66, Rue Francois Martin, 1st. Floor, Kuruchikuppam 605 012, Pondicherry, India. You may reach us by telephone: +91-413-421-0032 or by email: email@example.com
