Cleaning campaign, installation of dustbins and construction of landfills are ultimately not the solution to combat an escalating threat of waste being generated mindlessly in a country like Bhutan; rather it has encouraged.

On 8th October, 2016, SJI has organized a dialogue as well as the educational program to Dewathang Throema Tshogpa to go beyond the concept of waste collection with zero philosophy aligned with life style (what we eat, what we wear, what we buy…) which is the master key of our waste production.

The Tshogpa will be working in collaboration with SJI and the community towards building a zero waste management system and to educate general public on zero waste philosophy during their monthly cleaning program which will be then just a means.
