From plastic bottles to newspapers, everything is reusable. That’s the message the Sustainability Museum wants to spread.

Not many museums allow you to touch, feel or experience what’s on display and this is what sets the Sustainability Museum in Chennai, apart. With an objective to creating awareness on adoption of green products and practices, this museum makes it easier to understand sustainability by providing practical awareness and educating society on the entire gamut of sustainability.

Value for waste

From compostable plastic cups to a vertical garden — Suseum includes an array of eco-friendly products and processes. From bio plastics to up cycling and waste water treatment, Suseum aims to bring together all the tools needed to build a greener world.

Space and location has nothing to do with the amount of change you can bring in your own life. Situated in an apartment in the midst of the hustle bustle of the city, the need is to bring change at the grassroots level. Though everyone is talking about awareness and campaigns what is needed now to know what can be done in an environment similar to where they live — in an apartment.

Suseum has two ambitious goals — drive sustainable change for children and youth and allow kids to have hands on experience in recycling, reusing, and making valuable products from waste.
