    are almost entirely self-sufficient.  It serves as a working model for caring for the environment and as a demonstration center for
    rural technologies. It ensures as many products as possible are made using biodegradable materials through innovation and an
    Eco-friendly approach.

  • Approximately 50% of the Institute campus is occupied by roads, parking, buildings, lawns and other amenities. The rest of
    the area is used for agriculture or horticulture
  • All of the vegetables used for food at the Institute are grown on campus.
  • During the winter when there is a surplus of vegetables, these vegetables are dried in low cost solar tunnel driers. This
    provides the Institute kitchen with a supply of vegetables during the dry season.
  • Vegetable peel, spoilt or dried fruit, and other biodegradable material is composted and reused to grow vegetables and crops
  • Wastepaper, used newspapers, tree leaves and farm waste is made into briquettes.
  • For more than 10 years, all rainwater falling on roofs of building, roads, yards and agriculture land has been harvested through
    a system of small ponds and pipelines with chambers to arrest silt and floating material.
  • Washing-bathing and sewage water are re-used water for irrigation.
  • Solar collectors heat all bathing and washing water; there are no electric geysers on campus.
  • Solar cookers cook 3 meals a day for 100 people approximately 300 days of the year, briquettes and wood from campus trees
    are used the remaining 65 days.
  • Every effort is made to save electricity: Only CFLs and other energy efficient lights are used and passive infrared detectors
    control all campus exterior lighting.
  • Eco-friendly products are made from used and discarded materials: exhausted batteries into artistic paperweights, scraps of
    material into glass holders for hot tea, rice sacks are embroidered and turned into colourful carry bags etc…
  • Fallen hair collected in the girls dormitories is made into batik brushes.
