KATHMANDU, July 22: There’s no denying that use of papers have increased tremendously in today’s world. Especially in the corporate houses, paper consumption is comparatively higher for fulfilling the need of official documents. Likewise, the amount of waste generated out of those used papers is equally higher. And not much have been done on a national level yet to reduce, reuse and recycle these wastes which could contribute a lot in solid waste management and environmental conservation.
Concerned about this issue, Women Environment Preservation Committee (WEPCO), a non-profit organization working for management of solid waste in Kathmandu, along with the support of Hotel Yak & Yeti, Durbar Marg, have come up with ‘Green Circle Project’.

Otherwise I try and end the conversation in less than a minute,” he shares.
