Dhwaj Bagrecha, 'CHoOS' WISELY & NeoX
This episode, join us as we sit down Dhwaj Bagrecha to discuss sustainability, sanitary waste management, circularity and mindfulness. Dhwaj spends a lot of time doing yoga, sitting, then writing about this yoga and sitting (LOL). This has been the core of his life for some time now. Dhwaj moved back to Bangalore to get to know his family at a deeper level, after spending some years working as a volunteer in different countries (mostly farming, many odd gigs exchanging his skills for food and a bed). "It was fantastic. I was thriving!"
Before that Dhwaj spent some time in Auroville, 4 months or so, where he was exposed to a bunch of ideas around sustainability while working for a farm, and where he first began living very simply, so as not to depend too much on the economic system.
On moving here, he just started upcycling waste at his family's steel factory (it was lying in front of me), which led to 'Choos' Wisely Straws, and then to Neo X, a Point of Collection (PoC) Incinerator. It's the safest, smartest way to deal with sanitary waste.
"I dance ecstatically, I play football whenever I can, and fall in love every other month/week."
Sounds like we can all resonate with Dhwaj, so listen on to see how he's making an impact and striving to leave the world better than he found it.
