Waste Dairies

Our philosophy at Bare extends beyond selling zero waste products, we are working towards building a strong community of eco-warriors in India and around the world! Two such eco-warriors, Natasha and Unnati decided to document the waste problem in their respective cities, and here’s what they had to say.

Natasha Makhija 

 

 What are you currently doing, and where do you reside?

I am currently a Political Science student at Gargi College, living in New Delhi.


Why do you care about our waste problem?

I think the growing amount of waste is a large contributory factor to our environmental problems. To live sustainably and to ensure a clean environment for future generations, focusing on reducing waste and also spreading awareness about it is very important. Often people aren't aware of the impact that their decisions have and the only way to spread awareness is to talk about it.


What made you want to make photographs of the waste around your city? And what was the experience of making these photo's like? Did it help you realize anything?


Photography is a great way to spread awareness and show people the reality. Working on this project made me think about the severity of the situation, which is often easy to dismiss in our day to day lives. It becomes easy to disassociate ourselves from these problems, but going out to these locations and working on this project made me realize that this is a problem that we all need to work on as a society, and it's not going to be solved unless everyone is willing to make a change and contribute.

 

 




Unnati Choudhary 

What are you currently doing, and where do you reside?

I am currently pursuing  B.Sc Biotechnology.  I am originally from Delhi.


Why do you care about our waste problem?

Delhi being a metropolitan city is highly dependent on single-use items like any other metropolitan city. These items are actually very convenient for anyone. But what actually no one cares about is the impact that these products have on our environment.

What made you want to make photographs of the waste around your city? And what was the experience of making these photo's like? Did it help you realize anything?

To find a solution to this problem I finally tried finding companies who sell zero waste products. Then I came across Bare Necessities. And I was concerned with such a low number of companies like these in India whereas countries like the USA have so many companies like these. We neglect such issues which can be hazardous to your future generations. When I started clicking photos around the city, my realization became even strong. I never knew that this problem is rising rapidly. I want everyone to realize this problem with my photos and take a moment to think about this issue.
