Green Communities Foundation is a nonprofit based in Mumbai that handholds societies and corporates into becoming Waste Free. Founded in 2017, as an organization we believe in addressing the cause at source rather than the symptom.
Our team comprises of professionals from different backgrounds who have worked closely with waste management and the environment. We offer an easy, affordable and efficient solid waste management implementation process.
We follow the aerobic style of composting using Effective Microorganism (EM) solution, that is widely practiced in Bangalore – the composting capital of India. Our method requires simple layering of wet waste, spraying of EM solution, existing compost, cocopeat and dry leaves/browns, while NO churning is required. We recommend a composting cage or modified drums that facilitates a smooth process.
Our goal is to make Mumbai a Waste Free city and our target audience includes waste generators such as societies and corporates. The Foundation not only creates awareness about the cause but also follows through with end-to-end and holistic implementation through standardized procedures, an implementation manual, videos, charts, workshops and more.
As a product of its experience, the Foundation has realized that the waste management sector has an untapped potential for generating job opportunities, which will be essential in the coming years to ensure effective implementation on ground.
In an effort to bridge the gap between the lack of skilled professionals in the sector of waste management, and the need for the same, Green Communities Foundation has come together with Pratham Arora Centre for Education (PACE) to launch a first of its kind skilling program in the area of waste management. The program aims to equip young adults interested in pursuing a career in the area of environment and sustainability, towards getting an entry-level job in the sector as Waste Management Supervisors.
