Exploring Sustainability and Environmental Education with Ekta Doctor on our Podcast...

EcoDhaga's first episode of the "Better Ways, Better Days" podcast is nothing short of inspiring. In conversation with Ekta Doctor, the founder of Wonky Works, we get to hear about her journey to sustainability, her experiences with environmental awareness among people, her thoughts on large conglomerates and their climate commitments, and her advice on how we as individuals can achieve Better Days.

Ekta's journey to sustainability began 12 years ago when she started working with glass in India. She faced many challenges along the way, such as the lack of resources and equipment, but she persisted and created a business that is now focused on upcycling waste glass into beautiful and sustainable products.

One of the main takeaways from the conversation was the need for environmental education and awareness in the Indian context. Ekta shared her experiences with people's lack of knowledge about environmental issues and the importance of sustainable living choices. She emphasized the need for individuals to take responsibility for their actions and make sustainable choices to ensure a better future for generations to come.

The conversation also touched upon the trend of large companies sponsoring "green events" despite their terrible track records in terms of environmental harm. Ekta highlighted the importance of understanding the distinction between net zero and zero emissions and the need for large companies to take real action toward sustainability rather than just making commitments.

However, the podcast also sheds light on the small sustainable brands and start-ups working with sustainability in mind. These brands may not have the same resources as large companies, but they have more conviction to be circular, sustainable and embrace green practices. The conversation then shifted toward how we can amplify the voices of such sustainable brands.

The podcast concluded with Ekta's advice on how we as individuals can achieve Better Days. She encouraged everyone to take small steps towards sustainable living, such as reducing single-use plastics, supporting sustainable brands, and making conscious choices. She emphasized that every small action counts and can make a difference.

Overall, the "Better Ways, Better Days" podcast episode with Ekta Doctor from Wonky Works was both enlightening and inspiring. The conversation touched upon important topics related to sustainability, environmental education, and the need for real action toward a more sustainable future. We highly recommend tuning in to the full podcast conversation to learn more about Ekta's journey and the importance of sustainability in our daily lives.
