Nowadays, many factors contribute to the drop in environmental quality, but among them is the decline in household consumption. Domestic garbage, solid waste, and industrial waste are some of the most polluting types of waste. Leachate, a byproduct of solid waste, kills fish, lowers water quality, and transmits illness. Household is the source of mixed waste that can be harmful to the environment. Organic, soap, plastic, electronic, medical, and kitchen are the most common waste that we can find in the household. Population Growth means increasing Consumption and production to fulfil the needs of people. In the meantime, we are not ready for the waste we create from all the activities following the population growth. Household-level, Family and Community have the daily product, small business, and economic activity critical to waste production. At this level, we argue that the public needs to understand about their waste from their house. 


How to educate the public? How to change their behaviour? Two questions are always asked by people. We understand that the public has so many backgrounds of people like culture, race, resources and literacy understanding. Different society means different approaches to engage them into an educational program. Once the community is up and running, you may create an economic incentive that allows the business to stay in operation. To increase society awareness, we start with raising individual mindset, followed by institutions, organizations, and governments to manage the resulting understanding. We can start with putting a Healthy Family or Tough Family mindset in some societies.  Back to the roots of basic needs like Healthiness and Family. The Government can start developing their program with the help of NGO, academics, and activists with a better understanding of the research. The research will help us discover general characteristics by income, spending, education level, location, and age. This will determine the kind of approach for educating them or create policy briefs to be implemented. 


Along with education and policies, a waste management industry at national and regional levels shall be developed to increase public service and attention. The facility hopefully strengthened the political will of the Government to manage waste. This also will trigger research on industrial, energy, and management based on waste issues. With good governance and science-based to create decisions, the quality of policies will be excellent, and hopefully, sustainability can be achieved. 


Public participation increases with the transparency of the Government in delivering problems and solutions based on real life.  This brings the development of public awareness from the bottom up and tops down synergies to keep the environment clean and waste-free to achieve global healthiness in public areas.
