Clean water, basic toilets and good hygiene practices are essential for the survival. Today, there are around 2.4 billion people who do not use improved sanitation, and 663 million who do not have access to improved water sources. Drinking water supply and sanitation in India continue to be inadequate, despite longstanding efforts by the various levels of government and communities at improving coverage
Sonalika under their project Swach Dhara ( sanitation and water) installed an electric automatic Bio-Degradable Food Decomposer ("Decomposer”) at the Iskcon Temple, New Delhi as a step to spread awareness about decomposition of bio-degradable waste in association with Angelique Foundation. The Decomposer at Iskcon daily converts of bio-degradable waste and temple flowers into organic compost. Hon'ble Member of Parliament Ms Meenakashi Lekhi has extended support to the initiative at the event with Dr Deepak Mittal, Managing Director, Sonalika Group.
On the occasion, Dr Mittal said that “We constantly thrive to protect the environment through our various environmental and cleanliness initiatives at Sonalika. It is our prime duty to keep our city clean, by providing Decomposer in Iskcon this is one of the many steps Sonalika is taking in this regard while providing the De-composter for recycling biodegradable waste of religious shrines we follow and support our honourable Prime Minister’s Swach Bharat Mission. We are proud to be associated with MP Mrs Meenakshi Lekhiji’s mission in keeping the city clean and also it is great associating with Angelique Foundation for this cause.
