Zero Waste - India

A zero waste approach from top to bottom

Inspired by Amma herself, volunteers at every level of our organization strive for a “zero waste” approach toward material resources. Compost treatment systems have been put in place at many our centers worldwide. In India, our institutions produce more than eight tons of compost each day.

The recycling center at Amritapuri, our international headquarters, serves as an educational model of professional waste management designed to meet the needs of India’s rapidly increasing population. The center serves as a tour model for visiting groups of schoolteachers and children, businesspeople, political officials, and waste management professionals.

The Plastic Project, active in India, North America, Japan and throughout Europe, teaches participants simple techniques to recycle plastic packaging into durable, fashionable products like bags, purses, mobile phone cases, and even material for cots to be used in emergency relief.
