Siruthuli mission is to facilitate the preservation of water resources, the green cover, and proper waste management through local bodies. It was established by a few conscientious corporate business houses of Coimbatore to address water and environmental problems in the region.
Some of their programs are:
Afforestation: Siruthuli in association with the DRDA (District Rural Development Authority), embarked on a project for providing 1 lakh tree saplings as well as 50,000 fruit bearing saplings at Madhvarayapuram and Siruthuli Tree Park for distribution to Village Panchayats. Siruthuli launched the Happy Tree Zone, an endeavor to remove the promotional advertisement boards nailed on trees that in the long run result in the death of the tree.
Water Resource Management: Multiple yield tests were conducted by Siruthuli over the course of the year to ascertain the yield for selecting submersible pumps with the appropriate capacity. In FY15, 165 out of the total 365 Rain Water Harvesting (RWH) structures constructed earlier by Siruthuli in collaboration with the CGWB & Coimbatore Corporation were rejuvenated with the support of the Corporation.
Waste Management: An attempt for efficient solid waste management (Project Sunya) in an urban environment was implemented to introduce the concept of zero waste in ward 23 of Coimbatore. It not only provides a model to be replicated but also generated awareness. The successful implementation of Project Sunya motivated the people of Coimbatore as well as its Corporation to expand the project to all 100 wards in Coimbatore. A new goal was set to make Coimbatore a clean city, a challenge involving more than two lakh people.
Awareness Programs: An exhibition was organized for 3 days for creating awareness among the citizens of Coimbatore regarding the methods and necessity of Rain Water Harvesting. Siruthuli also organized a session for young volunteers from various environmental associations of the city.
