If a tree is ill, tree doctors are invited from Pondicherry's Auroville

Magazine Ecowatch Wealth out of waste SWAHILYA The Hindu Sunday, Apr 22, 2007
Clanging metals and a tranquil forest: the success story of Sundaram-Clayton's integrated industrial waste management. Here trees really are taken care of. "If a tree is ill, tree doctors are invited from Pondicherry's Auroville. They have tools with which they operate upon the trees and even apply medicines and antiseptics and bandage the wounds!" says a staffer.
Sultan Ahmed Ismail, Director of the Ecoscience Research Foundation, who has advised the company on its sludge management and composting, is highly appreciative of their attempt to integrate every aspect of waste management into one composite whole.
Taking from nature and giving back in the same measure seems to be the motto of Sundaram-Clayton, which has been successfully practising the art of composting and soil-regeneration for over seven years now.
