Today, the world is celebrating Happiness Day. At Organo, we are all working to co-create Eco-habitats that celebrate living. While working toward this common goal, our colleagues might have adopted some habits that are eco-friendly. Practicing them might have given them so much satisfaction and happiness. We asked our colleagues to list 3 such habits that pave the way for a sustainable future and at the same time make them happy. Here are the responses from our Organo team members:
Yamuna S, Telesales Executive

Kolakuluri Prabhakararao, Associate Product Guide

Meena Murugappan, GM Product Strategy
- I started using eco-friendly stationery. I love using my paper pencils and pens while writing
- I segregate my waste at home and have taught my family to do so.
- I spend more time outdoors at home, so I consume less power for fans/ACs

Garima Goel, Program Co-ordinator of OES
- I started Home composting. I got my first harvest of the compost 1 month back. It was a really happy experience to touch the black gold from my house's wet waste.
- I lead a plastic and polybag-free life. I carry my cloth and paper bags for all my shopping. I politely excuse myself from taking plastic bags any all shops irrespective of the place in India or abroad. My tiffin office bag is a beautiful handicraft item from Gujarat.
- I responsibly segregate my daily household waste on a day-to-day basis, into wet, dry, and hazardous waste. I also responsibly dispose-off household E-waste in the electronic waste bin provided by our housing society at the clubhouse at the end of every month.
- I and my family try to conserve water to the best of my ability. I don't run the tap while brushing my teeth. I use a cup for rinsing my mouth at the end. We use a washing machine at the appropriate water-saving levels for the cloth load being washed daily at my home. We also try and reuse the water left from washing vegetables in the kitchen to water my balcony plants. We also use an Earthen pot for drinking water cooling.
- I and my family have stopped having all processed food. We make everything at home from farm vegetables coming to my home from OES farm or from the local farmer's market near my society. I don't buy from Grocery stores and try and help poor producers and not let them get exploited in this way.
