Kirti Lakhanpal, a 'green hero' herself, shares her experience with e-waste management and how being a part of this campaign has been truly rewarding for her. Kirti started a small movement amongst her students who went back to sensitize their parents and neighbourhoods on reducing e-waste and the need for safe disposal.
