This was followed by a workshop in making natural soaps, eco-friendly accessories and gifts which were attended by the employees of the NEHHDC and the students of some nearby schools. The people were also educated on grey water harvesting, eco-bricking, making bio-enzymes at homes (which are alternatives to cleaning agents like harpic, phenol and lizol). The members were also educated to make home cleaning agents from lemon peel, jaggery and water, which had a great smell.
On the other hand Shirshendu Sekhar Das (member of The Midway Journey) educated the people how to dispose waste, so that it does not harm nature. He said that many of us nowadays depend or use disposable plates/bowls to have food. So before we throw these into the dustbin, it should be cleaned with water and disposed. This practice will help in recycling the used waste. The use waste in this context will include any kind of plastic bottles, plastic bowls where we get ice-creams, aluminum foils where food is wrapped or delivered from the restaurants.
