MUMBAI: Bajaj Electricals celebrated the 47th International earth day through a recycling initiative at Pixie Dust Farm in Bandra. The event indulged local residents alongwith D-ERT social enterprise and Bajaj employees on a day filled with useful recycling activities such as composting kitchen waste and its uses as farm manure and up cycling of PET bottles to make planters.
Pixie Dust Farm is a community farm developed in one acre plot at St. Joseph’s Convent at Bandra, Mumbai. The farm is developed by volunteers on the community along with the sisters of St. Joseph’s convent and expert guidance from D-ERT. The basic idea is to have a space to learn and practice urban farming that involves composting, recycling, upcycling waste and growing fresh sustainable foods in the city.
