Daily dump, a creation of Bangalore-based Poonam Kasturi, enables everyone to make compost at home from household waste
The smell of earthy, organic manure is absolutely wonderful,” says Sukanya Ananth, who has been making compost for over two years in the urban environment of Bangalore. Like her, many customers vouch for the empowering experience that Daily Dump offers to the urbanite who often feels helpless at the sight of the reducing greenery on one side and his own inability to do something.
This is exactly what Poonam Kasturi sought to address, with a dream that every Indian home composts its waste. Not one to stop at dreaming, she went on to research, studying the subject, and working out the design.
When asked, “How did you come up with the design?” she says modestly “I did not find it, it found me. I was on the road asking various questions like most people, questions about how best to occupy one’s time, what real quality is, the difference between impact and transformation, and then Daily Dump happened.”
Looking at the big picture, she thoughtfully adds, “Waste (like water, education, equity and dignity) belongs to all of us. We cannot abdicate responsibility only to the politicians, lobbyists, or big corporations. As our home waste is 50 to 70 per cent organic, keeping this off the streets can reduce the mess on the streets by 60 per cent.” Practical and realistic, she is convinced that while technology has its place, composting is a natural process that has been perfected by the universe.
