Terrace Garden Is Made Entirely By Living Zero Waste Life

 

Woman in Chennai who resides in Thiruvottriyur, and also leads a zero waste life. Pauline is 57 and she composts every waste - be it that of vegetable eggs or fish. She composts on her terrace garden and uses the compost for her fruits and vegetable plants. 

Talking to the Express Service, Pauline informed that she chops the vegetables into smaller pieces and crushes the egg shells too. This is then put “into Kambhas (composting pots) for ten days until it is shifted to another pot.” It further takes 30-45 days for the compost to be ready which can then be used as manure. 

In her garden, Pauline reportedly has fruits like pomegranates, tomatoes and vegetables like onions, chilies, lady finger apart from others. 

Not only is she leading a zero waste life, but she along with her husband gets organic produce absolutely fresh.

Apart from composting waste, the couple also harvests rainwater. Now this is an example we should all follow. The two of them are not only leading healthier lives, but in the process, helping the environment too.
