Running Time: 3:01
Have you stopped to think about how your household waste is managed? Informal waste pickers, like Gajendran, are crucial cogs in our waste management system. Gajendran, who has seen 28 years of service as a waste picker, shows us how a day in his life goes.
Since 1985, the Citizen consumer and civic Action Group (CAG) has kept pace with the new challenges arising for consumers – from fundamental problems relating to defective goods and services, to investor protection, power and telecom sector reforms and monitoring the growth of e-commerce. Despite this increased role in consumer protection, we have retained as our central focus, the requirement to make critical interventions to create consumer awareness, protect our natural environment and function as an influential citizens’ monitoring group.
