How is TI..EE..DI different from other organic farms? After embarking on this quest to build a forest garden, we get confronted with this query a lot. It isn’t…

She: How do we want our hut to look?
He: Outrageously Sexy!
He: But, we have never done it before. Where do we take inspiration from?
He: What’s that? World Wide Web?
She: That and the Wood Wide Web!
. . .
She: But, who do you think will come and stay here?
He: The Outrageous ones!
Here’s a big shoutout for all you outrageous folks who have pushed us all the way to the top of the rankings in TripAdvisor. You guys are insane to make us the No. 1 ranked speciality lodging in Darjeeling in just the first year of operation! (https://bit.ly/2TRfUgc)

He: Hmm, getting bored. Let’s do something.
She: Another outrageous idea? :)
He: That and more! :D
Another Mother Nature inspired hut is coming up at Tieedi soon. Stay tuned for more updates.

How did our earlier post on this make you feel?
As an Indian, did a nice fuzzy patriotic feeling warm you up from inside knowing that India has taken a stance to no longer be a dump yard of the 'economically' developed nations?
Did your blood boil when you realised that a system like this (Waste Imperialism) even existed in the first place?
What if we tell you that you could also be contributing to a similar system where you are living? Yes, waste Imperialism need not just be about one country dumping its waste to another. It could also be about:
1) Residents of Sonada agreeing to a system where their waste is dumped near Gorabari.
2) Residents of Kurseong agreeing for their waste to be dumped near Makaibarie.
3) Residents of Darjeeling agreeing to a system where their waste is dumped down the infamous chute near a small busty.
4) Residents of Siliguri agreeing to a system where their waste is dumped near Don Bosco school area.
5) Residents of a 'developing' Hyderabad agreeing to their waste being dumped in the outskirts of the city. Near the villages of Tarnaka.
6) Residents of 'developed' Delhi agreeing for their waste to be dumped into the Yamuna river and the other skyrocketing dumpyards in the outskirts of the city.
Waste Imperialism is real and everywhere. Find out where your waste goes. There is no such thing as 'away' when it comes to waste.

Glad to see waste Imperialism finally being rooted out!
Now, collective solutions need to be explored to overcome the burgeoning problem of waste. Is this the biggest crises that humankind has ever witnessed? It sure does threaten the sheer existence of many species including our own.
How many of us even knew that waste from developed countries were being exported to the developing nations of South Asia? Watch 'The Story of Stuff' in YouTube to get a short insightful account of how the whole consumption (false!) story was sold to us. Unfortunately the story was even adopted as a policy by developing nations like ours.
Time to adopt to new policies that are geared towards #ZeroWaste! ... See more
This is a shout out to all you folks who have been touched by the serenity and calmness of the Himalayas sometime in their lives. The Himalayas need you now! The burgeoning problem of waste is threatening the mere existing of the Himalayas as it is.
We had joined hands with Darjeeling Prerna and a few other waste warriors to participate in the massive Himalayan Cleanup last year. We had piloted the #Save8MileKhola project in association with our community in our area and it is an ongoing marathon challenge and we we are still fighting for the cause.
This wonderful initiative called The Himalayan Cleanup has been nominated by the European Outdoor Conservation Association to receive a funding for the 2020 Himalayan Cleanup.
Let your love for the Himalayas translate into this one vote that might make the difference!
