Waste Segregation& Composting program

According to the estimates of the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), Delhi generates about 8,700 tonnes per day of solid waste as of 2019. Official estimates predict that in five years the waste produced by the city will almost double to 18,000 tonnes a day.

Residents are recommended to segregate their waste. The wet waste segregated at source by the Householders is put to compost by the gardeners in pits as well as in 2 composters installed by the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC). Field workers from WOW, and currently SSIL, have been shadowing the process. In South City 1 of Gurgaon, 2 pilot projects of community composting have been kick-started in Blocks B & D.

Lake Restoration Project – Smriti Van Lake


Slim homes started looking at Smriti Van Lake restoration around 28th Nov 2019.

Details of project

The plan to restore the lake would be carried out in phases. The restored Lake, in addition to reducing air and water pollution, would provide natural wildlife habitat to birds and aquatic life, thus balancing out the ecosystem.

On the 11th of September 2020, Slim Homes participated in an on-site visit wherein people from the Landscape Department, DDA, as well as a Consultant from Wetlands International South Asia (WISA), were present.

The surrounding green cover would also be included in the purview of the Project. Smriti van, Vasant Kunj has been taken for restoration under the "Restoration of 100 wetlands" scheme initiated by the Ministry of Environment.

Our Roadmap

  • Slim Homes will be kept informed about the progress regarding the development of the green area and restoration of the water body and will also be included in the decision-making process.

  • A hydrological survey of the water body has been initiated. Results are awaited.

Tiffins Project


May 2021
Details of the project
Slim Homes is promoting the use of steel containers/tiffins among those who are providing meals. This move will cut down the use of disposables markedly. We connect with Home Chefs and the like and give them steel Tiffins for free so as not to impact their businesses.
However, we are open to receiving donations. Almost all of the money received as donations has been used for buying clothes from the SH inventory. These were then donated to institutions like Earth Saviours and Orphanage.

Our Roadmap

So far we have distributed 100 tiffins and about 20 steel containers.

  • We need to create a Registry of people and their requirements for steel Tiffins/ containers, as well as Donors for this project.

  • We will be targeting food delivery services to offices next.

  • We need to widen the awareness of the menace of plastic waste/disposables.




21 December 2021

Details of the project

Slim Homes is launching a K2K( Kid to Kid) program, whereby babies/ infants/toddlers share their appliances, toys, cribs, strollers, tricycles, car seats, etc.

This would de-clutter the home and allow a good rotation of toys without having to spend much money. 

In doing so,  these little people can avail of the best, in the best interest of the Environment, and they can be a part of a circular Economy from before they are knee-high to a grasshopper!

Our Roadmap
We have created an active whatsapp group where parents can join and use this group-chat as a common platform to exchange second hand toys/clothes etc. Visit our IG page to know more on how this works

Anti SUP- Cloth Bags 


June 2021

Strategic partners
1. Rangeen Dhaage
2. Jahnvi Apparels

Details of the project

Abiding by the principles of Reuse Repurpose Reinvent, Slim Homes is making cloth bags. 
Our aim is to limit dependency on Single-Use Plastics and move towards more sustainable ways of living.  In furtherance of this, we are on a drive to provide small local grocery shops with cloth bags. These bags are made of old fabric like old linen, cushion covers, upholstery, etc, much of which was donated to us. We gave the fabric to an organization 'Rangeen Dhaage' & Janhvi Apparels who stitched the bags for us. 

Our Impact

To date, we have distributed 650 cloth bags amongst Shopkeepers and Shoppers 

A total of 820 bags have been stitched by our Strategic Partners as well as homemakers like wives of our Carpenters, Drivers, etc. This also provided them with a source of income for a while.
