During F2F, several issues were emerged out during the discussions. The issue of waste was the highlight for all the community since the agriculture communities were facing a lot of challenges due to the lack of awareness on the ill effects of plastic waste. The proper disposal was the major concern for every community since they were already experiencing the plastic disposal in the water system and in agriculture land. Practicing organic farming was not enough unless the waste issues are also addressed in the community.
As a Micro Intervention Rohit Rai from Suban Dhura hamlet of Mineral Springs conducted the waste management awareness programme to the community and with the support of Naturland Fair premium installed the waste bin around the village for the proper disposal of waste. The premium comes from the proceeds of the sale of tea of the Mineral Spring collective.
