“TowaSO- Towards Solution”
When you meet Saurabh Kumar, you would just see a young man with his calm composure wanting to make the community we live in a better place.
An IIT Dhanbad alum, Saurabh started working for several NGO’s during his college and professional work life. He realized that there’s much more to serving the community than doing a 9 to 5 job.
He chose the field of environment to work for, in 2016 he founded TowaSo which stands for Towards Solution, simply because he believes in taking actions rather than just talking about the problem. He came to Jamshedpur in 2018 to serve at JNAC and helped in providing Door to Door garbage collection services in the area not coming under TISCO. At TowaSO, Saurabh focuses on 3S(Service, Satisfaction and Strictness) strategy to keep the city clean.
For Saurabh the thought was simple, when he started seeing challenges as hidden opportunities. Most of us love oranges, we eat the fruit and dispose off the peels. Saurabh decided to make use of these peels, he along with his team developed bio-enzyme toilet cleaner and today, many public toliets across our city use these environment friendly cleaners to keep the toilets clean.
He started collection of flowers from temples of Jamshedpur to convert it into compost. Parties and community get togethers get are typically associated with a lot of waste, Saurabh has a small crockery bank of 50 sets of utensils which is free of cost and aims to minimise the use of disposal plates.
Festivities also do not stop or deter Saurabh’s motivation towards ensuring proper waste management; on the occasion of Durga Puja, he along with his team save more than 10 tonnes of devotional stuff going into the rivers through the process of idol immersion.
With the 3S’s of serving the community, Saurabh is dedicated to making our city a champion is waste management.
We salute Saurabh for his tireless and diligent efforts!
