Everyday as we put out our garbage, are we thinking of its impact on global warming and climate change? Very often we are not making the connection. India generates over 42 million tonnes of garbage everyday, the majority of which reaches landfills and open dump sites. These are massive polluters and are amongst the primary contributors to climate change, leading to resource destruction, and thereby encouraging further resource extraction. Often overlooked, is the fact that urban landfills are also the largest anthropogenic or human induced sources of Methane, an active Greenhouse Gas with the global warming potential 21 times that of Carbon Dioxide. Careful use of resources and responsible waste management is critical for any meaningful response to the pressing challenges of global warming and climate change. Reducing methane emissions is further an opportunity in the short-term, with the potential to have the most immediate impact on global green house effects. There is much we can do - very simply - as individuals, communities and as a society to reduce methane emissions. The film highlights the connections between urban living and the waste we generate- to global warming and climate change. Through showcasing citizens initiatives for responsible waste management at individual and community levels, from household and community composting and recycling to decentralised ‘bio-methanation’ or waste to energy efforts at the municipality level. The film further highlights the imperative for each of us to ‘take action’ within our respective contexts.
