Maybe you’ve seen them, maybe you will soon.Spreading the word of responsible e-waste recycling are Raju, Pranay and team; the young heroes from the theater troupe. Passionate about our cause and doing their bit for a safe environment, the group is staging “nukkad nataks” (street plays) across Jaipur inviting the audience to join Zerowaste in our mission to make Rajasthan India’s first zero e-waste state.

We’ve realized that the biggest problem in e-waste disposal is the fact that no one really believes that they have any e-waste at home in the first place. Look around your house and the chances are that somewhere in some corner there are lots of discarded electronic items — great when they worked, forgotten when they don’t. Yet no one’s ready to let go. One fine day they’ll just end up on a rubbish heap or be sold off as scrap to someone not qualified to dispose them off properly. That’s where the e-waste problem begins.
Don’t store, don’t help add to e-waste. Be responsible and recycle it through someone qualified. Zerowaste is there to help you. Together we can make a difference.
And if you get a chance to see the nukkad natak do clap for the young actors who are working hard to make a difference to the world that we live in.
