Did you know that since June 21, 2021 trans men and trans women can avail free travel on all MTC whiteboard buses? This scheme helps in cutting down their daily expenses, aids to remove social boundaries and provides some form of recognition to these communities that otherwise face multiple layers of oppression.

Non-compliance with wearing safety gear (helmets & seatbelts) remains worryingly high, reveals an assessment conducted by CAG in 3 districts in #TamilNadu. #Helmets & #seatbelts remain the first line of defence against life changing injuries & fatality in the event of a road crash. It is high time the government mandates the increased penalties as per #MVAA2019 to encourage compliance.

Social Media Poster: World Food Day 2022

Sun, 16/10/2022 - 14:04
Author

A recent survey by CAG indicated that while nearly all respondents understood the #health impact of consuming processed foods, nearly 66% of people admitted to consuming these foods. It's no wonder then, that these poor food choices are causing as many as 1,573,595 deaths in the country. It is high time that #consumers are warned about the presence of high salt, sugar & fat in #processedfoods. It will give them the power to choose wisely. #WorldFoodDay #EatWell #GlobalGoals

Brand Audit 2022

Fri, 14/10/2022 - 15:34

The Plastic Brand Audit is a yearly initiative to gather data on the top polluting companies (and this year, this global citizen-science project celebrates its 5th birthday!). Last month, our team of dedicated volunteers cleaned up a stretch of the Kasimedu Beach, Chennai. The plastic waste they found was sorted and analysed to find out which company is putting out the most plastic. Our findings about who we found to be the top polluters, will soon be published. #breakfreefromplastic #brandaudit2022

Incinerators are dirtier than coal

#India has a target of raising the non-fossil fuel based energy capacity to 500 GW by 2030. Policies & financial institutions that support #Waste To #Energy #incinerators need to remember that #plastic is #fossilfuels. Burning (plastic) waste as a source of energy not only slows down our #sustainableenergy aspirations, it actively worsens our emission target contributions. And of course, the plastic production will continue unabated, as now, it can all just be burnt. We lose on all fronts.
