June 2024 Young Planet Leader – Nithya Tammana


Nithya Tammana, at just nine years old, is a passionate advocate for environmental conservation, particularly in the realm of water sustainability. Growing up with a deep appreciation for the natural world, Nithya was inspired to take action after witnessing the staggering amount of water wasted in her own home while waiting for the shower to heat up.

Driven by a desire to make a difference, Nithya founded “Save Drop,” a grassroots initiative aimed at raising awareness about water wastage and promoting practical solutions to mitigate it. Her primary focus is on advocating for the widespread adoption of water recirculation pumps, which she believes can significantly reduce household water consumption and preserve this precious resource for future generations.

Nithya is dedicated to spreading the message that every household wastes over 20,000 gallons of water annually, simply from waiting for the shower to heat up. Through her work with Save Drop, she hopes to educate others about the importance of water conservation and empower them to take action in their own homes.

In addition to her environmental advocacy, Nithya is also actively involved in her brother’s initiative, “Recycle My Battery,” where she has played a key role in facilitating the recycling of over 10,000 batteries. Through her dedication and commitment to environmental causes, Nithya hopes to inspire others to join her in creating a more sustainable and water-conscious world.
