“Either you donate or shop at Sukhawati Store, you not only help people in your community, you also contribute in protecting the planet. “

Every day, 1,200 tons of waste collected from Kathmandu, Lalitpur, Bhaktapur, Kakani, and Banepa is dumped at the Sisdol landfill site in Kakani rural municipality, Nuwakot. Sisdol landfill was supposed to be a temporary dumping site, meant to be used for three years. It’s been 13 years nowCurrently1,200 tons of garbage collected daily, 65 percent is organic waste, and 15-20 percent is recyclable. This leaves you with very little that should actually be going to the landfill But without a proper system for waste segregation, much of the trash collected ends up in the landfill.In recent times, a lot of emphasis has been given to recycling, upcycling, and reusing. Many people and corporate households seem to realize that the onus lies on each of us, and they are quite intent on doing their bit to reduce the amount of trash they generate. Sukhawati Store works for its core objective to reduce the amount of trash that goes to the landfill.

Till date, we have reused 30530.73kg/ 1,79,774pieces of items and prevented them ending in landfill
