News Desk, News Nation 360 : The Mamta Sumit Binani Foundation, Home for You, Yi of CII, Emami Kolkata Centre for Creativity, Maheshwari International Business Foundation, Eyantram, Sew In Style, and MSME Adda hosted the "Compost Carnival: Waste Not, Compost Lots!" an engaging and motivating event centred around sustainability and environmental care at Golden Tulip, Kolkata, on April 22, the day the world observes Earth Day, which is 54 years old. Beginning with a hands-on composting workshop, attendees of all ages—from environmentally conscious adults to inquisitive kids—gave away valuable advice on waste reduction and composting methods. The idea of composting is not new. This same process is seen in the natural world when leaves pile up and start to rot on the forest floor. When the decaying leaves eventually find their way back to the soil, living roots can complete the recycling process by recovering the nutrients from the decomposing leaves. The event offered a unique opportunity for participants to learn about

composting and its vital role in preserving our planet which was attended by: CS (Dr.) Adv. Mamta Binani, President of MSME Development Forum WB Chapter; Shital Bavishi, Renowned Environmental Activist & Founder of Beejum, an organisation promoting sustainable practices; Baibhav Agarwal, Chairperson Yi of CII; Richa Agarwal, Chairperson, Emami Kolkata Centre for Creativity; Bishnu Lohia, MD, Eyantram Waste Management Company; Rajani Kedia Ghosh, Promoter Director, Sew In Style; Prashant Maheshwari, President, Maheshwari International Business Foundation; Ashish Mittal, Director, Golden Tulip Hotel & many other eminent personalities. On this occasion, Baibhav Agarwal, Chairperson Yi of CII stated that the community came together for the compost carnival, which celebrated sustainable practices and promoted composting as a means of reducing waste and producing soil that is rich in nutrients. With engaging activities and educational workshops, this session gave locals a fun and interactive way to get involved with composting.
