Your Well Wisher Program conducted a workshop on Save Water at IIT Delhi – Check Details
What design changes can save water? Can products be designed efficient to save water. For example, Wash basin should be foot controlled and can save water up to 70%. How it can be designed?
This video converted from ppt showcased in Green Week at IIT Delhi held on 22nd Aug 2015. Please share.

The video talks on Malnutrition problems and its cause. It says – For the first six months, the child should feed only on mother’s milk.
Working mothers find it difficult. Maternity leaves differ between Central Govt employees and Private Company Employees.
|Central Govt Employees
||Private Company Employee
|Entitled to Six months paid maternity leaves.
||Entitled to 12 weeks paid maternity Leaves.
So, working mothers in private companies get less than six months maternity leaves. Thus, the child of working mother in private companies becomes malnutrition.
So, what may be the proposed solution for the working mothers in private companies?
Solution A : Raise Public Interest Litigation in High court/Supreme court and get amendments in existing Maternity Benefit Act, 1961. Private company employees should be entitled upto six months paid/unpaid whatever.
Solution B : A doctor can issue a letter to working mom for her employer to grant six months leaves. Most companies HR policies accepts doctor’s letter for granting leaves.
Solution C : Raise the matter in HR department in your company. Few companies HR policies have amendments to give six months maternity leaves to their employee. Refer this <Link>.
These proposed solutions are based on the best understanding. Let us know your thoughts. Your feedback may solve the malnutrition problem in India.
Thanks to Aamir Khan for Malnutrition Campaign.
Share it on this Happy Mother’s day – 10th May.

This is suggested design for a water bucket that should save water. Estimated 20% water should be saved with such design.
Adding Overflow Marker: A simple red line drawn in circular on the top of the water bucket defines the problem of water wastage on water bucket.
Margin Space left on top level of bucket and overflow marker line is actual and immediate water saved with this design. It may be 1 or 2 litre water that is directly saved.
‘No Overflow’ Label: A simple label but attempts to resolve the problem. It makes user responsible towards water use as well.
Volume Indicator: A simple scale for volume of water at different levels in water bucket. This volume value tells the user every time how much water is being used. The measure of volume helps in analyzing and helps in understanding water significance. It is expected that user will tend to use less water with such volume measure available.
Here, scale in design is not actual measure and may differ with product design.
Business Opportunity: Water Bucket Manufacturers can make more profits with such product design. At the same time, it solves global water crisis problem.

This is Revised version to past content – Water Saving Wash Basin Water Flow Optimization Project. The intent is to make it simpler and easier to understand.
This should be simplest and quickest way to save water around the world. thanks.
> Men pass urine by standing at the urinals in Washroom.
> Whereas Women need separate cubicle for passing urine.
> Women show resistance for drinking water with fear of waiting/finding washroom.
> This cause health issues like high incidence of urinary tract and bladder infections.
> Men Washroom and Women Washroom are generally equal size.
> This cause Women to wait more and need more time than men.
Proposed Solution (after research conducted on Potty Parity)
> Women washroom should be double the size of Men washroom.
> Also, count of public toilets for women should be double count of Men’s toilets.
> Size: U.S. state laws vary between 1:1, 3:2, and 2:1 ratios for Women/Men public toilets.
> Size: Guangzhou-China set standard for Women toilet to 1.5 times to men’s toilets.
> Count: Mumbai-India had 5,993 public toilets for men with 3,536 for women.
> Count: Delhi-India had 1,534 public toilets for men and 132 for women in year 2009.
