Green initiatives at Adamya Chetana
ZERO garbage kitchen:
Taking on the social responsibility of reducing the burden of waste in Bengaluru, Adamya Chetana has successfully reduced its kitchen waste from 300 kg per day to ZERO
Fossil fuel free cooking with bio fuels:
Adamya Chetana used to consume 60 LPG cylinders per day at its Bengaluru kitchen. We then switched to using 400 litres of Diesel for a few years. But, now we are proud to have switched completely to using bio-fuels including bio-gas produced from kitchen waste.
Roof top Solar power generation:
Adamya Chetana was one of the early adopters of roof-top Solar power generation. Power generated is being fed to the grid
Over 10,000 steel plates, tumblers, spoons have been bought to create this unique plate-bank. Any event in the city can borrow these for their use. Reduce-Reuse is the mantra of Adamya Chetana.
