Human Centred Design Thinking in Practice in Urban Waste Management: A Conference at UChicago Delhi Centre

HCD

Our Co-founder, Vasudha Mehta was one of the Speakers at “A Conference on HCD – Human Centered Design Thinking in Practice:Case Studies in Urban Waste Management” — which was held at the Uchicago Delhi Center and in line with the theme given to us, we shared with the audience, our story of setting up and scaling up JAAGRUTI Waste Paper Recycling Services across the three phases of adopting a Human Centered Design based approach – from INSPIRATION to IDEATION to IMPLEMENTATION.

As per IDEO.org:

Human-centered design is a creative approach to problem solving . It’s a process that starts with the people you’re designing for and ends with new solutions that are tailor-made to suit their needs. Human centered design is all about building a deep empathy with the people you’re designing for; generating tons of ideas; building a bunch of prototypes; sharing what you’ve made with the people you’re designing for; and eventually putting your innovative new solution out in the world. Human-centered design is a process that can be used across industries and sectors to approach any number of challenges—from product and service design to space or systems design, to name just a few

Excerpt from this story is quoted below:

The Indira Gandhi International Airport here has initiated measures like using recycled papers at its premises in a bid to become a ‘green airport’. After putting in place some of the green initiatives like rainwater, use of natural lights and efforts to reduce emissions, the airport operator, Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL), has now decided to use recycled papers in its offices. For this, DIAL has entered into an agreement with an NGO ‘Jaagruti’, which will recycle the waste paper generated in its offices and get the notepads or A4 sheet made from the recycled paper.

 “The collected waste paper would be systematically graded and transported to the recycling mill. There it would be processed to make different quality of recycled paper by using Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) bleaching technology,” a DIAL spokesperson said.

 This would save 17 trees, 26,281 litres of water, 264 kg of air pollution, 1,752 litres of oil, 4077 KW hours of energy, 82.62 cubic feet of landfill space, he claimed. As a part of the initiative, DIAL shared one tonne of paper waste for recycling to Jaagruti. “DIAL is committed to conducting its business in an environment-friendly and sustainable manner at IGI airport by minimising the impact of our activities on the environment and community. Environment Management is an integral part of our business strategy towards achieving credibility and business sustainability,” DIAL CEO I Prabhakar Rao said.

Paper Paper everywhere…

Paper products & everyday life

>This post is kind courtesy of paperrecycles.org

Many of us take for granted that paper allows us not only to enjoy our lives but also to go about our daily routines with greater efficiency.

From the thinnest tissue, to the most absorbent diaper, to the toughest corrugated box, there are almost as many different kinds of paper as there are uses for it.

Most of us begin our mornings by enjoying the comforts of paper products – from facial tissue and paper towels, to the morning newspaper, to the carton that holds your orange juice, and the paperboard packaging that holds your breakfast cereal.

Our children benefit from paper each school day from classroom drawings and notebook paper to text books that students learn from.

At work, office papers help us communicate. Even in this digital age, and despite talk about the “paperless office,” office papers are essential for copiers, laser printers, brochures, notepads, and other uses. And since digital documents can be deleted, there’s nothing like having a back-up on paper.

Wherever we go, paper is there to help at every turn. It’s the bags that hold your groceries or latest clothing purchase. It’s the cards, letters and packages you receive, the cup that holds your coffee, and the album that holds your memories.

Even while we sleep, paper is still hard at work providing a host of innovative paper products that help hospitals deliver cleaner, better patient care and protect healthcare personnel. Paper is at work in thousands of industrial and manufacturing applications helping keep the air clean, and providing protective apparel and innovative packaging.

When you consider the tremendous benefit of paper, it’s clear that we must all continue to work together by recycling used paper.

Recycling is easy to do and it’s good for business and the environment….and we at Jaagruti™ Waste Paper Recycling Services can help recycle your waste paper at no cost, if your organisation is based out of Delhi and NCR.

So next time you read the paper, open your mail, clean out your files, or empty a box, don’t put that paper and paperboard packaging in the trash. Complete the circle and recycle it.

Complete the circle by recycling your waste paper through us at ‘Jaagruti Waste Paper Recycling Services’

 

How to reduce and reuse paper?

Next time you waste paper, you may do well to remember that paper doesn’t grow on trees! 

But, about 17-22 full grown trees are cut to make 1 tonne of paper.

Paper usage is inevitable, we understand that because we also use paper, BUT you can help the environment by reusing paper. Reuse minimizes the amount of trash you produce and conserves precious natural resources.

Many everyday paper items can be reused and kept out of landfills:

  • Replace using tissue papers with handkerchiefs, why waste paper made out of trees, when you can use a piece of cloth that can be washed over and over again and reused..Think?
  • Save paper that has print on only one side. This paper can be reused in a variety of ways: for writing lists or notes, as drawing or coloring paper for children, for home printing that doesn’t need to be professional.
  • Save toilet paper rolls and paper towel rolls. These can be used for school or home art projects. They can also be used for starting seeds.
  • Save tissue wrapping paper. It can be reused for wrapping another gift, as packing material, or for protecting Christmas ornaments for storage.
  • Save junk mail. It can be used to make lists, as scratch paper, for a child’s drawing.
  • Replace paper bags with cloth bags while you go shopping.

If you have some paper left that hasn’t been reused through some method above or has been used and re-used to the hilt and can’t be used or re-used anymore, don’t throw it away!

Recycle it and all your organisation’s waste paper by contacting us at ‘Jaagruti™ Waste Paper Recycling Services‘.

We do it for free and we do it to save many a tree!
