How will you react if someone knocks your door one fine morning and says, “Please close the tap in your backyard, it’s been open since the last two hours and water is getting wasted.” Will this annoy you or will you quickly rush to rectify your mistake?
Jalandhar’s Meenal Verma did not receive a warm response initially when she began with her door to door campaign a few years ago requesting her neighbours to stop wasting water.

Not just water conservation, Meenal and her community have been working relentlessly to encourage people towards ‘Going Zero Waste’ and lead a sustainable lifestyle by indulging in thoughtful and logical choices. Check out the video to find out about Meenal’s green journey…
