IDEAS TO BE IMPLEMENTED

01 DUSTBINS INHOSTELS

EU working on making the dustbins monkey-proof. Advising the HAS to place at least 2 or 3 segregated waste bins. Planning to take a survey on the preference of pedals or aerators on the dust bins

02 REDUCE MESSWASTE

Planning to get and work on the daily mess food waste data to analyze the wastage and make changes in the menu to reduce it. Also planning to use posters at the mess to create awareness about the food wastage and reduce it.

03 REDUCE ELECTRICITY CONSUMPTION

Give cleaning staff in hostels responsible for switching off unused lights. Check Himalaya streetlights and outside lights and turn them off in the mornings.

04 INTER-HOSTEL COMPETITIONS

Conduct competitions among the hostels and use electricity and water metrics where the hostel with the minimum water and electricity consumption per person wins
