Did You Know That 1 Ton Of Food Waste Emits 680 Kg Of Carbon Dioxide Into The Environment?

By | IDBlog | No Comments

If you don’t understand what that means, simply put: it is really bad for our environment! Globally, 1.1 billion tons of waste, more than 40 percent of the world’s garbage, is burned in open piles, contributing to rising emissions of toxic gases.

In Pakistan, the way to dispose waste is to pile it up in an empty plot and burn the trash. This emits CO2 in the environment that causes various deadly consequences such as respiratory issues, heart disease headaches and nausea, just to name a few.

However, trashit, your compost hero, is trying to solve this problem in Pakistan. They are a startup that converts trash into premium fertilizer allowing for a better and more sustainable future for everyone. Trashit Founder, Anusha Fatima, believes in active participation of citizens in curing urban challenges such as proper waste disposal. She decided to step forward to make a change after seeing the dirty outlook of the cities in Pakistan. Trashit promotes sustainable living and aims to develop this habit in Pakistan through their work in the ecosystem.
