‘Xchange’ is the reason for our Survival

‘Xchange’ is the basic principle of ‘Nature’ - We exchange carbon dioxide (CO2) for oxygen (O2). Seeds ‘xchange’ soil, water and sunlight for vegetables. An ‘xchange’ of the mother's blood helps the zygote to grow turn into a human. Coming into more practical applications, the adults exchange their time, brain and effort for money at their jobs. At school, we gain knowledge for the money our parents pay in form of fees. The communication also is basically exchange of words and gestures.

In the earlier days, the eco-system prevailed on the basic system of ‘Barter’. This very barter led to the start of trade and prosperity. However, with the evolvement, humans discovered currency, and now in the current eco system, people ‘xchange’ money to buy goods. To purchase anything ranging from vegetables, groceries, stationery and / or everything else, people just have one single medium – Money!

So, look around, ‘xchange’ is the basic phenomenon and thumb rule for our basic survival. Not even for a minute can we survive without doing an ‘xchange’.

With this thought as the seed, we started ‘Max Xchange’!

‘Max Xchange’- A platform, where we beat the current eco-system, by creating our own unique currency; which in general language is called ‘WASTE’.

We ‘xchange’ Waste for Goods. As a result, people don’t Spend Money to buy products, rather in fact they Spend ‘WASTE’ to buy. As a result, a ripple effect is created which serves the bigger purpose for which we work – ‘Save Nature’

We are a ‘Waste Management & Recycling’ Group, working towards the objective of making ‘Earth’ more livable and habitable, by trying to undo our own wrongs that all of us have been doing for many years now.

Over the years, people had been very occupied and engrossed in their own growth, sustenance and comfort, and as a result, they ignored the constant depletion that was happening of our Nature.

To comfortably quench the thirst at any location, packaged bottled water was invented, and while over the years, people comfortably got access to clean drinking water; the size of land parcels of Landfills got bigger, filled with plastic bottles. Once the Landfills started to have dearth of land, humans turned towards oceans, and as a result the fishes and the aquatic animals started to die, as they were choking on plastic.

When cities started to overgrow villages, and the concrete jungle ate up the harvesting lands, the supply of milk became an issue. As there was no longer any space for ‘gaushala’ to keep cows and buffaloes in the cities; it was then when the concept of packaged milk was introduced. This led to milk being packaged in plastic pouches and transported to various towns and cities. Now, while this catered to the requirement of milk; the pouches started to make the Dumping Yards higher and higher. Case in point – the Dumping yard on the Gurgaon-Faridabad road. This particular Dumping yard has gone so high, that it has put the ‘Aravali Mountains’ in the neighborhood to shame.

The population of Gurgaon is about 10 Lac people. It being the metro city, taking an average of 4 people in a family, makes it about 250,000 families staying in Gurgaon only. Milk is a commodity that every household consumes. An average of 2 to 2.5 litres of milk per household would imply on an average of 3 to 4 pouches of milk consumed by every household. The number that we arrive at would be about 875,000 milk pouched discarded everyday, only in Gurgaon. In a month, 2.6crores of milk pouches discarded by just the residents of Gurgaon. If you calculate this number for our whole country the number would run in Trillions.

The irony here is that most of us, still don’t bother. We collect the pouches – cut them – pour the milk in the containers – and discard the pouches – End of the story.

A similar story goes for the snacks that we pick from the roadside vendors – Eat the chips and throw the pack, either conveniently on the road itself, or in the dustbin – End of the story. Out of the population of 10 Lac, even if we presume that on an average 200,000 people consume the packaged snacks daily (though the number is much much higher) would imply would imply 200,000 packets every day. With simple mathematics, it would imply, 60,00,000 waste snacks packets every month.

Unfortunately, these facts don’t even catch the attention of most of the people. As some say, it’s a self-centric world – all we are concerned with is our sense gratification, and what happens to the Nature (which doesn’t even retaliate or say anything) is of the least of our concerns.

On the other hand, there are some, who are bothered by these facts don’t really know what to do with these pouches, so throwing away these is the only option.

Well, that’s where we fit in. We are trying to educate people to change their habits wrt to handling their Waste; so that we can reach our Goal of ‘Zero Waste’ Society.

For instance, for the Milk Pouches, we are trying to educate people with a process to follow, as defined under:

Cut – Pour – Throw Current Scenario
Cut – Pour – Wash – Dry – Store – WE Collect Ideal Scenario

That’s not all! The empty pouches which people were throwing as of now, and was getting collected in the Dumping yards and Landfills; is going to get people reward in terms of getting Groceries in ‘xchange’.

So, next time you throw an empty milk pouch or the empty snacks packet, think of Us, and simply call us. We would do the rest, and ensure that not even an iota of it would go to the dumping yards and landfills.
