Vinod Sreedhar, an independent consultant/trainer, who does programmes on social governance, has started a ‘back to nature’ initiative by pooling in with three of his friends. He wants to teach and share with others the simple ways of reconnecting with nature and giving back to the environment some of the natural resources. As part of this initiative are his trips to Ladakh which he organises periodically, so that youth can learn and assimilate the simpler ways of living of the people there. Aparna Shekhar spoke to him.
Contract cleaning business has increased manifold in India over the last five years. With that the demand for cleaning equipment of different types and sizes, to suit the nature of the cleaning or maintenance work. Cleaning can be especially difficult in large airports, railways & bus stations, hospitals, food manufacturing plants, restaurants, retail stores, schools and numerous industrial facilities and sites. Cleaning service contractors need to know how to identify the category of equipment required and also then to pick up the right one from the entire range available with the equipment supplier. Cleaning equipment are expensive and the important thing is to get the best result with limited investment. Clean India Journal requested a few equipment suppliers to throw light on the criteria to select the commonly used cleaning machines.
