Complimentary Distribution of Earthen Pots (Matka)

The ASHRAE India Chapter initiated a community outreach program aimed at promoting sustainable living and decarbonization through the distribution of earthen pots to Guards, Maids, Drivers in the residential societies and officers of chapter members. The earthen pots were also provided to chapter members for use in their offices for use of naturally cooled water.

This initiative is a part of broader efforts to advocate for environmentally friendly practices and reduce carbon footprints at the grassroots level.

Earthen pots, traditionally used for storing water and cooling purposes, have multiple environmental benefits. They are made from natural clay, which is abundantly available and biodegradable, reducing reliance on plastic and other non-biodegradable materials. The porous nature of earthen pots allows for natural cooling through the process of evaporation, which helps in reducing the energy consumption associated with refrigeration. By maintaining a cooler water temperature naturally, these pots contribute to energy conservation and, consequently, decarbonization.
