Sustainable forests are our pathway to slowing climate change and promote social equity

Solutions for
Waste Management

New and existing threats are changing India’s forests rapidly. 

Our Cities are under threat

With the increasing urbanization, waste management is a major global issue that governments face daily. The overproduction of waste has been causing negative impacts on our environment.

79% of the plastic made in the world enters our land, water and the environment as waste; some of it also enters our bodies through the food chain, according to a study done by the Centre for Science and Environment.

60% of the waste generated is recycled, but then why is plastic waste a big problem in India?

Know what MEF is doing

MEF is working in Agra city, home to the world-famous Taj Mahal, which generates more than 75 tonnes of plastic waste per day. The lack of waste management infrastructure leads to most of the plastic waste either being dumped on roadsides or the Yamuna River. MEF is working with various stakeholders to clean-up city of Agra.

Agra Innovation Lab

Massive Earth Foundation and GoMassive Incubators have setup the Agra Innovation Lab for Prevention of Plastic Leakage into the Environment (AIL-PrePLE) with support provided by The Incubation Network (TIN). AIL-PrePLE is a platform for entrepreneurs, academicians, technical researchers, and innovators across the globe to accelerate and pilot test solutions that prevent plastic leakage into the environment. We are focusing on solutions relevant to identifying waste, mechanized collection and transportation of waste, sorting of waste, and unique recycling processes.
