#Demonetisation taught us a LOT . In one stroke we had to shake off old, entrenched habits and imbibe a new way of living. It was inconvenient. But as a nation we adapted to it .
Pre 8 Nov 2016 it would have been inconceivable that we could do without cash. Now , we reach out for our digital wallets quite naturally. We’re being conscious of what we buy .
It’s time now that we #DeMonetise plastic bags from our lives . There would be temporary inconvenience . Soon , we will remember to carry reusable bags daily .
Each one of us can make a difference. Together we make Change.
At Clean Planet we love all things sustainable and handcrafted . Our eco handcrafted range is contemporary , stylish and impeccable.

Clean Planet : Made in India. To Make a Better India.
A meeting with Major D P Singh in Delhi earlier this year sparked off a discussion on a event to culminate on 3 Dec 2016 which is ‘World Disabilities Day‘ . The idea was to combine focus on needs of differently abled people and SwachhBharat - a cause very dear to us.
We’re happy to partner with Swachh Ability Run – a first of it’s kind marathon and cleanathon that focuses on Differently Abled Persons and Swachhta .
It’s been our pleasure to have designed the logo for SwachhAbility Run.
Not only is the event the ‘first of it’s kind’ – even the collaborators are first of it’s kind : The Indian Army , J.K Cement , Delhi Dynamos – a football team , Clean Planet , Proton Sports , The Challenging Ones – NGO founded by Major D P Singh.
Join us at Chandigarh on 27th Nov 2016 all the way to Delhi on 3rd Dec 2016 to make an #Inclusive and #SwachhBharat.
We support livelihood programs for women under Clean Planet – Empower wherein we mentor and train women in crafts for making quality products – in Mumbai and other locations . It’s been a hugely joyous and enriching experience to see women learn and create .

These delightful products will soon be available at select outlets .
Made in India. To Make a Better India.
Dear Mr Modi ,
Thank you for all that you are doing for India. It is the first time that a Prime Minister has invited citizens to share ideas for the 15th Aug address to the nation. One of the many firsts of this truly inclusive government under your visionary leadership.
I run a business wherein we create eco and handcrafted products that help people bring sustainability and craft into their everyday living. We believe that ‘Each One of Us Can Make a Difference. Together we make Change‘.
This 15th Aug pl invite every citizen to do something positive for India – every week. By 15th Aug 2017 we would have potentially 52 constructive actions for the nation. There are people in India (like you) who have dedicated their life to the nation. We have millions who are focused only on their life. In my work in the space of sustainability i have seen that for a lot of people there is a peculiar combination of apathy & powerlessness. With the rise of social media people voice their views. There is a lot of arm chair activism. Which perhaps (and hopefully ) is the first step towards activism in action.
Doing something for India – is not a call just to citizens with smart phones and access to social media . EVERY citizen should be invited , challenged , inspired to do something tangible and positive for India.
An auto driver may give a free lift to an aged underprivileged person , a college student can help a local Ngo , a working professional may help a student , a bank official official makes people aware about insurance n inspires them to go for it , a housewife decides to make her home plastic free , appreciate and support the social workers in your area , pledge to stop littering. People can use their core skills to make a difference. e.g a doctor treats at least 1 patient a week free of cost , a nurse tends extra care to a patient who does not have a family. Start a hashtag e.g #IndiaPositive. Idea is not self publicity. The goal is for Indians to get inspired by other Indians. As you have seen in your journey so far – once you engage people the outcomes are brilliant. All the astrologers of the world put together cannot predict the outcomes. Think of the hashtag as a way to crowdsource ideas for Indians by Indians to make a better India. Encourage media to run programs every month . In your #MannKiBaat every time remind people to continue their ‘#India Positive’ work , ask schools to get kids to write essays on what they are doing for it. Translate the essence of the Hashtag into regional languages. The spirit of it is more important than the physical words.
1 billion people. 52 billion potential ‘India Positive’ acts . This will bring Indians closer to each other and to India. We have problems of people from some regions not feeling welcome in some places , definitely we have a socio economic divide. Conscious ‘India Positive’ acts can integrate and turbo charge India in ways we cannot even imagine. People in some states feel less of a connection to India. Imagine Indians in Kashmir and N.East thinking about what they can do for India. When a person does something consciously and ongoingly for the country – they will become more engaged & aware citizens. An engaged & aware citizen is less likely to litter India , to let women be brutalised , to watch anti national elements try to fragment India. Our police and armed forces will have 1 billion new recruits. Today overseas Indians know that if their message reaches Ms Sushma Swaraj they can expected to be helped . Imagine a India where Indians in India know that they can rely on their fellow citizens .
Giving & Doing are powerful anti dotes to helplessness . It will connect a person to their inner strength. Let this herald the start of a new tradition in India. The current generation of kids grow up watching their parents consciously doing something positive for India. What a legacy that will be ! Truly it will make India ” Saare Jahan Se Accha”.

Most of us think we vote once in 5 years . The truth is that we vote everyday for the kind of world we wish to live it through every purchase we make . This is equally – if not more important that the government we elect .
Want a world with less trash ? Buy better products that will last longer . Want better health ? Buy fresh, organic food that is nourishing rather than canned food . Want a world where businesses are responsible ? Support responsible businesses.
Whether we are conscious of it or not – we do vote daily .
