Did two projects named Water Free Urinal, Parvati Ghat Crematorium
Sitting Area ~100 People, Parvati
Ghat Crematorium, Venue: Zoom Meeting on 5th May’21 at 3.30 p.m.
The key benefit derived from a water-free urinal in a public place, is in saving a significant amount of water and sewage minimization, thereby reducing carbon footprint affecting the environment. Less than 1% of the world’s water is fresh drinking water. It’s estimated that 2.2 trillion gallons of freshwater are wasted every year from sanitation flushing. As our world population grows, freshwater will be increasingly scarce. Hence, there is a need to minimize flushing fresh water down a urinal drain. They are grateful to our well-wishers for sponsoring the project.
Facilitation of Sitting Area for Nearly 100 People Parvati Ghat Crematorium
They sponsored concrete blocks with black stone tops to facilitate a sitting area for nearly 100 People at Parvati Ghat Crematorium. Inner Wheel boards and potted plants with Inner Wheel Logo and have been installed within the Central sitting area. During cremation, several people need to either keep standing for long or be seated in an undesirable environment. Hence, an effort has been made by the club to improve the ambiance during troubled times to elevate mental health.
