India VOTE kar!

Calling out to every adult Indian citizen. You may have voted on your favourite T.V. shows such as Nach Balliye, Big Boss, etc. Now it is time to vote for your country. It happens every five years, unlike these shows, when the nation calls out to you to choose who will be it’s leader, who will take India to the next level of progress.

Voting is our adult right and a national duty. It is not for us to ignore. If we want to make a difference in India’s political, social, economic system, it starts with that one VOTE which we will cast on Election Day. So step up! Cast that vote and be a responsible Indian citizen.

“Each one of us can make a difference. Together, we make change.”

Voting is our national right and duty.

Voting is our national right and duty. Let’s act upon it NOW.

Let Earth Breathe!

Non-biodegradable plastic. Choked Earth.

Non-biodegradable plastic. Choked Earth.

A mother always protects her child from wearing a plastic bag over their head, else they may suffocate and die.

What about Mother Earth? Why do we ignore such a deed from happening to our planet? Why do we continue using polythene bags, plastics, etc. and choke the rivers, drains, etc. Doesn’t the same principle apply to it as well?

The over utilization of plastic bags across the world has suffocated Earth. Marine life, the animal kingdom, plants and forests, etc. all get affected by the human’s “inhuman” actions. All because we forget to nurture Nature.

Let’s not aggravate this situation. Let’s switch to better, biodegradable and reusable solutions such as cloth, jute bags, etc. Remember,

1 cloth bag = 300 plastic bags.

By using simply ONE cloth bag we are saving planet Earth from 300 plastic bags worth of torture. Why not make this difference today?!? Switch to a reusable, Eco-friendly alternative.

Independence Day

Happy Independence Day

Happy Independence Day

We’d like to reiterate our thoughts on the significance of Independence Day…

A salute to all those who participated in the movement to make India Independent. And to all those unsung heroes across the country who have since then contributed in myriad forms to making this a more equitable , fair , liveable , joyous , progressive nation than it would have otherwise been.

What is the significance of Independence Day in present day urban India ? For the generations that have been born and raised in an independent India ? Newspapers filled with pictures of celebrities wearing clothes that have shades of the tri-color , saying what it means to be Indian . Buying little flags at the traffic signals and putting them in one’s car or desk for a few days. Participating in flag hoisting ceremony in one’s residential building or company. A few moments of solemn silence as the anthem is played followed by snacks and catching up with neighbors . What is the connection that the rituals build with the idea of a nation ? of the idea of being Indian ? The risk is when the sentiment is limited to a few external gestures.

We can create new , meaningful rituals for Independence Day – as individuals and as groups :
- Recognize that our actions – personal and professional – shape India . If there is allegiance to the idea of a nation to which we pledge our devotion – let it reflect in consistent action.
- Make life choices – small and big – that are authentic and deeply meaningful rather than driven by external appearances / compulsions aka Inner Independence
- Give time , attention , money to those less fortunate
- Help educate a child
- Consciously choose not to litter any public space – e v e r.
- Plant trees
- Become an a c t i v e citizen
-
-
- the list can be meaningfully expanded
Eventually we need to rise above the idea of nations and see the human species as one . Until that can happen we can attempt an expansive and inclusive definition of what it means to be Indian . And be cognizant of our responsibilities and rights the other 364 days of the year.

Pl choose to create a glorious India where Independence is a reality for all it’s citizens .

Happy Independence Day.

Pl choose to make a difference.

The Greenpreneurs share the common goal of creating a sustainable world. Today, over 100 eco-brands are a part of this ‘Green Revolution’ whose aim is “Promoting Eco-enterprises and Sustainable Development in India”.  Team Clean Planet is very proud to be a part of this green group.

There are several eco-businesses all across India started by entrepreneurs wanting to catalyze a sustainable world . Combined effort by way of shared platform will help to create a stronger impact in society. TGPI began as a grouping of ideas, skills, and efforts of each green business into one consolidated move towards a Green World. Together, we make a difference which is powerful and strong enough to create a change in the world. 

The TGPI group is ready to launch itself on 7th June, 2013, at a one of a kind event, The Green People Festival. This is a 3-day festival  on 7-8-9 June 2013 in Mumbai , India focused on sustainable living.

Corporate Gifting – Green Gifting solutions

Everyone was present in the main conference area. At the front was Mr. Prabhu standing shly beside the CEO and the Head of HR. The veteran employees were looking at them proudly, remembering the time when they were in Mr. Prabhu’s position while the new comers stared in awe and inspiration. It was the Employee of the Month ceremony at one of India’s prominent refineries. The HR manager gave a brief on Prabhu’s achievements and why he had been chosen among several other candidates for the award. Finally, with all eyes fixed on the duo, the CEO presented him with a sleek and stylish vintage grey bag, which held a trophy and an Employee of the Month certificate. With the smart Tote Officiel in his right and the certificate in the left hand, he proudly looked into the audience and simply said, “Thank you.”

As the Forum came to a close and the MD gave his acknowledgement speech, the employees stood by the gate with the black bags all set to be distributed. These smart Totes with their attractive graphical prints, were to be given to all the participants of the Summit as a souvenir. Attracted by its sophistication, these bags appealed to one and all and everyone made it a point to collect one before they exited. The Totes’ USP was they were 100% environment friendly and had versatile uses; creating an image just the right CSR image for the IT based company that would stick even months after the Summit.
