India

Garbage is a major environmental issue threating India today, with 60 million tons of trash generated every year and a more than 15,000 metric tons of solid waste produced by Delhi and Mumbai every day. The lack of an effective waste recycling system is a major contributor to the problem. Biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste are being incinerated or buried together in landfills, leading to increased methane gas emissions, chemical poisoning, carcinogens and other health issues. For Picture This, MSM Pvt. Ltd. will focus on how viewers can reduce the amount of garbage they produce by separating biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste at home.
