2. List all the wastes that you generate, at home, school or during your trips to other places. Could you very easily reduce the generation of these wastes? Which would be difficult or rather impossible to reduce?
In our daily life, we generate a lot of waste at our home, schools, during trips etc.
1. Waste generated at homes- waste paper, old clothes, leather articles, broken crockery, cartons, food leftovers, kitchen wastes etc.
2. Waste generated in schools- paper, discarded pencils, pen refills, cardboards, polythene bags, fruit peels, wrappers etc.
3. Waste generated during trips- papers, plastic bags, bottles, old clothes, leftover fruits and other eatables, cartons, food wrappers, aluminium foils, plastic glasses, thermocol plates and glasses.
Among these waste products, the electronic wastes, crockery, glass item, plastic items, metal cans, polythene carry bags, pet bottles etc an not be reduced. In fact, they are difficult or rather impossible to reduce. They can be sorted by recycling them or dumping them in open landfills. On the other hand, the paper pencil wastes, food items, etc can be easily reduced by dumping them as they are biodegradable and get degraded by decomposers wit time.
