Ep 8 – Green Talks with Panchtatwa Girl Ft. Nilima Buch from Punh: zero waste
The most environmentally friendly product is the one you didn’t buy. – Joshua Becker, founder of Becoming Minimalist
When we talk of eco-friendly living the very first thing that supports this cause is the three Rs of reducing, reusing, and recycling. तीन R का मतलब होता है REDUCE(कम उपयोग), RECYCLE(पुन: चक्रण) , REUSE(पुन: उपयोग) । इस नियम का उपयोग kar ke hum paryawaran ko nuksaan se bacha sakte hai. To ye jo shabd hai punh: yani RE ka hamare dincharya me kafi mahatva hai agar hum ise gaur se dekhe. In this episode of Green Podcast, we have among us Nilima Buch who is the owner and founder of Punh: zero waste.
Nilima has been a professional singer – stage performing artist since her teenage years. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Hindustani music (classical vocal) and in Western classical music from A R Rahman’s music college. During her college years, she was employed by The All India Radio as a radio announcer. After a fulfilling career in Indian art performances for 20 years, she secured a Diploma degree in French and started performing in many Western classical concerts for Opera music. Her love for gardening and nature got her busy with conducting social awareness workshops on environmental solutions… Later her passion for doing “Hatke” things in life prompted her to start a new venture of eco-friendly products.
