Over the past couple of years we have hosted volunteers from over 15 countries and without their contribution Tieedi wouldn't have evolved to where we are ri...
"How does it feel make the switch - from being a city slicker to a forester?"
"How does it feel to pick up plastic for over two years now (3000 sacks in total)?"
"What does 'zero waste' philosophy imply for us? How do we got about managing our waste when we are not contributing to the landfill nor burying or burning the waste?"
"How have we gone about composting 100 kgs of bio-degradeable waste that we collect from our community every second day?"
" 'Forganic Farming', 'Soilstry', 'TIEEDI' - (what do all these un-dictionary words mean?"
"How are we funding this (ad)venture? Is sustainability sustainable?"
We try to answer some of these questions and more in conversation with @imnotrohan

We are excited to be launching our own home (read:forest) made soaps from today! :)
This one is with an aloevera base. Infused with lemon grass essential oil.
No chemicals and no other additives.
Packaging is paper and jute rope. Totally compostable.
Do you know that the modern soap industry is one of the major pollutants of our water systems? The so called 'germs killing chemicals' are actually harmful to your body cells too. The fancier the soap the more the chances of it containing harmful chemicals and even microplastic! Will post some links in the comments section shortly that shares some more insight on this huge problem with the sanitation (ironical isn't it!) industry.
Minal, the youngest member of the Tieedi family, has decided to model for the advertisement of this forest-made soap. Swipe left to see the expressive Minal who now has the honor of being the first user of this soap. Hmm... looking his expression after using the soap we were wondering if we should brand the soap now as 'GLEE-n'. :)

It's the start of a new year and today was a specially gratifying day.
Our relentless crusade to clean up and save our beloved river (#Save8MileKhola) is slowly bearing fruit.
For the second time within a year, we are hosting folks at Tieedi who were enchanted with the river and wanted it to be part of their life story. Today, we assisted a wonderful couple and their crew is doing a pre-wedding photoshoot at Tieedi and our 8 Mile river. It felt good, really good to see the same patches of the river that was earlier reeking with decades of neglect and plastic waste, now sparkling clean and proudly hosting a photoshoot. Kudos to the multiple cleanup acts and change of habits of the locals.
The beautiful hamlet of Rajahatta that stands tall behind this river was the next destination and it again felt good, really good to see the smile and joy in the weather-beaten faces of the villagers as their humble houses and the breathtakingly beautiful vistas were captured by a drone as part of the photoshoot. As we walked the Rajahatta village trail, it again felt good, really good to see that there are now trash cans put up by villagers themselves to ensure that the trail is spick and span.
The winter sun that peeked through the clouds seemed to smile in appreciation of the changes down below.
Is the river completely clean now? No. We still have a long way to go. Has everyone stopped littering? No. Some still do. Does everyone understand our crusade? No, some still view us as Permie Hippes. :)
But change is evident. We are in it for the marathon not for the sprint. The day is not far when you can come over to 8 Mile, stroll into our river, wade into its sparkling, mineral rich water, cup your hands and drink the nectar of life, straight out of it.
Life is Beautiful!
Happy New Year Folks! May the Forest and the Rivers Be with you! :)
