Let Earth Breathe!

Monday, November 25th, 2013
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.

Corporate Gifting – Green Gifting solutions

Friday, April 26th, 2013

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.

The MNCs employees were quite excited when they received their “My Exclusive Privileges” gift coupons for the year. It had a massive 20% discount on all Clean Planet products. This was a most welcoming surprise as it came right before the gifting season. Everyone had been a part of the buzz around this brand of Eco Stylish tote bags. They had been through the catalogues that were passed around and some enthusiasts who had heard of Clean Planet earlier on had even gone ahead and made their purchase even before the discount offer was announced. As soon as their coupons were released, all and sundry made a dash for the webstore to buy their favorite Wise Totes, Compact Totes and their ‘buddy’ the Tote Pal.

Square foot

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012


No..this isn’t the logo of a Zen foot reflexology spa . It’s the new mantra of modern day retail – Square Foot. More accurately ‘sales per square foot’.

As a brand born of passion to create a more sustainable world – we seek to imbue all that we do with meaning and value that transcends the short term . When designing a product we rigorously focus on how to maximize the value for all involved. Can our customers use it for years ? Will it help them create a sustainable planet ? Will it work well for various lifestyles and occasions ? How can we enable value and growth for our supply partners ? This is an on going journey.

Some of the discussions with the large format retailers focus almost entirely on return per square foot – to a point that everything else seems to get eclipsed ! There is surprisingly no mention of their customers and what might serve their needs.

A business undoubtedly needs to be efficient and profitable . This is not mutually exclusive to focus on customers and the eco-system of people who are a part of any business.

It would be to the collective advantage of mankind to take the focus on ‘Square Foot’ out of the stores and extend it to the Planet .

A huge gift

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

Wipro Ltd chairman Azim Premji has transferred 213 million shares, equal to an 8.7% stake in the company in which he held 79.5% at the end of September, and valued at Rs8,846 crore to an eponymous trust as an endowment, to fund the development activities of the Azim Premji Foundation.

In a statement issued by the foundation, Azim Premji said: “We believe that good education is crucial to building a just, equitable, humane and sustainable society. All our efforts, including the university that we are setting up, are focused on the underprivileged and disadvantaged sections of our society.”

Based on the 300% dividend Wipro declared in 2009-10, the 213 million shares would have earned Rs127.8 crore.

The irrevocability of the trust means that its mandate and terms of creation cannot be changed, even by Premji.

Powerful , inspiring action by Azim Premji. Ripples of this action will be felt by multitude of individuals , families , communities,India and the planet.

Green School

Saturday, November 20th, 2010

John Hardy says that he was inspired to create the Green School after he watched ‘An Inconvenient Truth‘. It’s amazing what you can create and catalyze when you allow yourself to be inspired and follow it up with substantive action. Contrast that with watching something , getting all fired up for a while and then going back to life as usual.

It’s an interesting model that can be adapted in creative forms by educational institutes , communities and companies across the world – adapted for local environment , needs and culture.

Naturally , access to education changes the course of the person’s life . Education benefits not just the individual – but his/her family and community too.
