Any housing complex is like an organism. There is an intake of energy, consumption of energy, and of course, like any other organism, waste generation.
Matoshree Pearl in Mahim, Mumbai, is one such high-rise housing society with 22 floors and 65 apartments. And the waste it generates is so efficiently managed that it is turned into organic fruits and vegetables by the residents.
In three months, Matoshree Pearl has gone from an ordinary housing society to an entirely green housing society, with a self-sustaining waste management programme which recycles kitchen waste into organic compost.
