What is your favourite experience to have? Or what’s something you have been wanting to experience and still haven’t done?
I love watching the sunrise and sunset... fills me with hope and joy😊
And it’s so strange how it’s the same sun everywhere but the sunrise is different in every place!
Your turn.
Comment maadi!

All the stuff I own!
Only when you move do you realise what a blessing practising minimalism is!
I moved out of my house today.
I had 15 days to get packed up and leave... what I’m happy about is that in all those days, I spent less than 24 hours dealing with my “stuff”... I gave away my plants and a few other things I didn’t need... packed up everything else,barring the wardrobe (with some stuff inside).... three bags of stuff, I didn’t have to bother sending a parcel before I arrived.. everything came with me on the flight because it was less than 25 kilos!
I spent every day in the last 15 days doing what is valuable for me... that included meeting my friends and family, doing a yoga course, studying, getting massages etc!
Moving can be fun... I’m not believing anyone who says otherwise anymore!! #minimalism #minimalist #minimalliving #move #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #borrowedsuitcase #sustainability #sustainableliving #minimalwardrobe #repeat #plasticfree #wastefree #letsmove

The thing about composting your kitchen/ organic waste is that it’s never really a waste!! I’m in the process of packing up to move out of town and one of the things I had to do, was to clear out my compost bins. Since I had already given away most of my pots I knew I wouldn’t use it in anyway... so what would I do with the compost that I sieved? I could have ideally given it to someone else who probably needed it but since I dont have the time to do any more coordination,
Here’s what I did... Put it near a tree in front of my house...! Simple.
That’s the thing... even if someone doesn’t use the compost themselves, you can be sure that the compost will be of good use somewhere for some plant.
And You will have the greatest satisfaction... of keeping waste away from landfills..! If you’re considering composting but are still doubtful, i would say, don’t be... go for it, you won’t regret it!! #compost #zerowaste #goingzerowaste #zerowasteliving #composting #earth #nature #organic #organicwaste #biodegradable #wastefree #plasticfree

Young adults and children are the future of the planet....! The more they are aware, the better we can expect our tomorrows to be!! I had a wonderful opportunity to talk to Students from two colleges in Bangalore (SJP and Rani Chennamma) about zero waste living and minimalism in Cubbon Park today.
Together we picked up 300+ bottle caps (picked up from just 1/10th of the total area of the park :() to construct a new year wish for the world!
Happy new mindful year again everyone! Have the best 2019!! #zerowasteliving #zerowastebengaluru #zerowaste #zerowasteindia #zerowastelife #projectshunya #minimalism #minimalist #simplelife #sustainability #sustainableliving #breakfreefromplastic #plasticfreeworld #plasticfree #nomoredisposables #nomorebottles

And that's a wrap 2018! :) What an interesting year it has been for Project Shunya...! So many ups and downs, but the journey has been nothing short of fantastic! - full of learning, growth and so much fun!

For everything that Project Shunya was this year, we have only one person to thank, and that's YOU - our cheerleaders - you've encouraged us to share our lives with you and supported all our initiatives. 
We hope that we've been able to contribute and give back to all of you in some meaningful way too!
I'm sharing a collage of the #stopsucking #tendercoconutchallenge for 2018! I'm pretty sure I've missed some photos (Sorry if I have!)
Thanks to all of you who participated - I'm confident we will have many more people join this collage next year :) Happy New Year's eve folks! Have a great night!

Love <3

#repeat #reuse #rsofsustainability

Come December, there are so many parties, weddings, events that we invariably have to participate in..... Have you ever been pressured to "buy" new clothes because you feel you have nothing to wear and ofcourse, you can't repeat the clothes you wore last time?? Can you relate?
I certainly have this pressure all the time! Even if I'm okay with repeating clothes, I've noticed that many times people around me say " you can't wear this... didn't you already wear it for that event, in that year?!" Ufff!
And God forbid you've posted it on social media... gone case... Apparently you can never be seen with those clothes ever again... 🤦🤦🤦 I don't exactly know where we get this idea that we should never repeat and always wear different clothes for every major event... Maybe it's all the celebrities influencing us, maybe it is the advertising industry, maybe it's society in general... But we all succumb to this pressure (even men!) and somehow unknowingly pass it on to others as well... Honestly it's time to stop this mania! You can wear what you want, how many ever times you want and how ever you want to wear it!
As long as you are comfortable and you feel good, don't bother about what anyone else says.... You do you!
And guess what, It's great for the environment too because well, fast fashion... That's the most unsustainable thing ever! Huge Waste of resources and money!

This saree (photo) is one of my favorites... I wear it every occassion I can... It makes me happy :) Each time I try to wear it differently though, so that I don't get bored myself... I change my hairstyle sometimes or the jewellery or even the saree style. Love it!
Ofcourse, I'm going to repeat this saree way too many times in the future as well! 😀
What do you think about #repeat? repeating your clothes?? Are you okay with it?Are you not okay with it? Why? Tell me,I'd love to hear from you!

And that's how it's done!
@_tanishabalraj_ some skills I say!👏👏😀 #tendercoconutchallenge *Whistle podu*
It's time we all #stopsucking

Come, Take the #tendercoconutchallenge with us, before the year ends (just two more days, you guys 🤗🤗) Here's how you take the challenge:
Drink tender coconut water without the straw (it definitely needs some skill!) And post a picture of yourself drinking it...and then challenge your friends to join in with you!
Use the hashtag #projectshunya so that we can see it too!! ** Everyday millions of plastic straws end up in the landfills and in the oceans. It hurts the animals, it hurts the soil & water, and it ultimately hurts us! Straws are the easiest plastic to give up... Give it up today! Say no everytime someone offers it to you. If you really can't do without a straw, then the last option is to use a non disposable one like bamboo or steel straw... Definitely no plastic ones! ** #zerowaste

We hiked a gorgeous hill today, deep in one of the forests of Sri Lanka. Amidst all that beauty was the plastic eyesore... In ten mins this bottle got full.. with plastic wrappers, bags, straws etc!
Instagram is full of pretty pictures and we get lost in them but a lot of times the reality is something else! High time we #getreal and #rethink what we are doing to this gorgeous planet.
Two things I've been trying to implement when I travel:
1. Ditch the plastic... Carry your own bags, bottles, cutlery etc..
2. Leave every place you visit, better than you found it.
What are your thoughts.? Do share it, I'd love to know!

We did it! We did it!! We did it you guys!!! 🤗😁❤️
Our first ever low waste wedding!! Can't even explain how exciting this was... congratulations Krithika and Srikanth... You've taken the blessings of Mother Earth by choosing not to trash her... What a wonderful way to start a new life together... Stay blessed!!! ❤️ ***
From choosing reusable cutlery over disposable ones, cotton bags instead of plastic ones, minimal flower decoration to ensuring all the food waste was picked up by the Robinhood army to be distributed amongst the hungry, we did a lot of tiny things to ensure we produced very little to no waste. Loads of learnings as well as successes.
Thanks to every individual who supported us to make this happen...!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
I'll have all the details up very shortly!! Yay. Yay. Yay.
Can't even deal with the excitement!! 😁😁😁😁
