About me

Dear Reader,

You have reached this page and perhaps it’s time to know a little about me.

I am a Bangalore-based independent journalist with stints in Deccan Herald, The Times of India, The New Indian Express and Acharya Institute of Journalism (HoD) spread over 12 years. When a chance arose in early 2012, I worked hard and succeeded in setting up a highly advanced and end-to-end zero-waste SWM system for my community Sobha Althea-Azalea, Yelahanka, along with a bunch of enthusiastic green volunteers. It was picked by The Times of India in August 2015 as the best model to be emulated across Karnataka. The experience—embedded with failures and sweet successes—altered the course of my life by changing the way I looked at urban waste and the trail of woes it left behind in terms of air, water and soil pollution.

savita hiremathMy love for local solutions led me to conducting several DIYs in composting thereby reinforcing my firm belief that it takes local and cost-effective solutions to deal with a monumental issue like garbage.

I began pouring my energies into researching and documenting all the available composting systems/methods here in Endlessly Green to help green champions like myself transform their communities by picking the right composting method and other best practices. Through my blog, Facebook and WhatsApp, I am in touch with hundreds of green champions from across India and help them pick the right composting method for their community.

My blog bagged the “Social Media for Empowerment Award-2018” conferred by Digital Empowerment Foundation, New Delhi.

I am a core and proud member of the Solid Waste Management Round Table, Bengaluru. Through my Endlessly Green SWM Consultancy launched in August 2018, I am helping more communities, bulk generators in general, take to sustainable methods to manage the waste generated in their community, turn all the organic waste into compost and then use the same to grow an organic garden.

  2. Dear Savita, I am living in an ashram in Kerala, working there in waste management. We have a waste management system and are close to zero waste. We try to raise awareness and encourage people to set up community waste management system wherever they live. Your blog is very precious and can help them to achieve this. I will recommend it. Thank you and please continue. Thanks to people like you, this world is becoming better.

  3. Great blog and I love what you’re doing. Very impressive. Would be great if you could make some videos of the great work you’re doing and post them on YouTube. But I know that can be a lot of work. We also have a little web site that talks about home composting – ezcompost.info. Thanks for your great work! Om Shanti, -Advait in Kerala

    • Hi, sorry for the delayed reply. I am pasting this response which I wrote for another comment.

      We use an old one which was manufactured by a local engineer. I think you skip that and consider options from MK Associates. They have a range of shredders. Also, check out my review on Tallboy from Riteways. They have got a good shredder, too. Beyond this, I have no idea about any other shredder that selling in the market. Thanks. Hope it helps.
