In a bid to engage citizens to adopt improved waste management practices, Tata Trusts, through its programme Mission Garima, launched an emotive campaign titled #TwoBinsLifeWins—which brings to light the story of a child whose father has to segregate waste in sewers because citizens wouldn’t.

The campaign has been developed by FCB Ulka.

The video film:

The campaign urges citizens to segregate waste at the source, to make the lives of conservancy workers better and more dignified. It is a part of an on-going initiative of the Trusts’ Mission Garima to promote safe, healthy and humane working conditions for conservancy workers in Mumbai. Under Mission Garima, the Trusts identified and procured technologies to make the process for waste management more mechanical and reduce human intervention. Tata Trusts has provided improved Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to more than 150 conservancy workers in Mumbai, in collaboration with the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM).

The launch of the campaign will further see the distribution of more sets of PPE at a first-of-its-kind model chowki at L-ward, Kurla, jointly inaugurated by Tata Trusts and MCGM. Chowkis are facilities in every ward where cleanliness workers assemble to begin their day and come back to change and rest. The chowki in Kurla comprises office space, separate rooms for men and women staff with improved water and sanitation services, storage, and functional open space. It will be equipped with amenities such as a water purification system, microwave oven, a gym, among other recreational activities.

Divyang Waghela, Head, Tata Water Mission, Tata Trusts, said, “Conservancy workers are the backbone of large metropolitan cities like Mumbai. They help in keeping our city clean, and in order. It is imperative that efforts are made to ensure their safety and to protect their dignity. Tata Trusts launched Mission Garima to bring about a significant positive impact in the work environment of conservancy workers. With #TwoBinsLifeWins, we hope to prod the conscience of the nation and encourage citizens to segregate waste at their respective homes, so conservancy workers live a life of dignity and respect.”

Shedding light on the storytelling, Keegan Pinto, National Creative Director, FCB Ulka, said, “The inspiration for this heartfelt film comes from true feelings, testimonials and insights. This film is very special to us. But the film is not more important than the cause. Nothing is more heinous, ridiculous, tragic, disgusting and a greater product of our trademark Indian collective convenience and ignorance than a man having to go down in the drain and then dying too early, leaving his children orphaned. We really wish the film makes a difference and we hope people start segregating their waste at home with the small act of two bins and abolish this practice altogether.”
