Raipur Hosted Its First “Garbage Festival” With Stunning Artwork And An Important Message
Indians love trash. Or so you would think based on the amount we generate both in our lives and on screen.
However, we’re not the best at dealing with all our garbage and countless government initiatives and vigilant police officers are helpless unless we are thoroughly educated about the matter. And the citizens of Raipur, Chattisgarh are doing just that by organizing their first ever Garbage Festival. (H/t)
Day 2 kicks off with children learning how to make a Chain of #Unity from paper! #KachraMahotsav shows Raipur how to make the best from waste. #MorRaipur #SwachhSurvekshan2018 @PMOIndia @SwachhBharatGov pic.twitter.com/V5ff1NSWXr

The festival focused on how to reuse items traditionally thought of as “waste”.
But it’s not just the Raipur District that has taken the initiative, other districts have contributed to the art installations and various write-ups on the importance of waste management. The Kachra Mahotsav even featured poems by children to highlight the need for better hygiene in rural areas.
