#DeMonetisation and Sustainability

Monday, December 26th, 2016

CP Poster_01

#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 believe that words have energy and power . Everyday living objects can be imbued with purpose , meaning and positivity . A pouch can be so much more than a pouch .

The Indigenius Shloka pouch is a bundle of positive energy crafted impeccably from 100% Cotton . It has the elegant charm of a wise sage .

Look forward to more of these in the coming months and beyond.

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.

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.

Eco-creative Packaging

Clean Planet eco-creative packaging

In addition to the product design we have put in a lot of thought and effort in designing tags , envelopes etc to enhance the eco quotient of every aspect of Clean Planet . e.g the papers used for the tags are 100% wood free , hand made papers . The main tag has been designed to be used as a book mark.
We’ve always felt that it’s such a waste for packaging to be discarded after a single use . At our office we reuse packaging material extensively .
The fact that most folks don’t reuse packaging has several aspects to it :
- It’s not a priority
- Packaging is seldom designed to encourage reuse
- The packing is over done or done in a way that makes reuse impossible e.g we see online stores that will pack even a book in shrink wrap , followed by bubble wrap and then in a carton like paper package with liberal use of tape . To get to the product you’d need to literally rip apart the packaging . Sure , the product is intact . But the planet pays a high price for every package shipped.
Every product produced requires resources – material , energy , man power , fuel . It’s not planet worthy to make single use products if the product can be designed to be multi-functional .
In India recycling is currently done at a very limited scale . All the stuff we toss in the garbage is transported to a land fill. Lack of segregation means that even bio-degradable stuff languishes in a land fill next to non-biodegradable material.
We worked on making the envelope used for sending out the orders super versatile . One side of the envelope is printed with material that customers can cut out and use in a variety of ways . The envelope is more than an envelope . It’s takes on a new life as cards / book mark / positivity dice – spreading joy and love on the planet .
The Clean Planet envelope was recently featured in ‘Packaging Of The World‘  that showcases creative packaging from across the globe.
p.s – a huge Thank You to all you awesome folks who have been buying Clean Planet products and re-using the envelope to make this a happier planet !

 

 

India Kuch Kar

Saturday, September 8th, 2012

Littering is probably thought of as the unwritten Constitutional right in India. People from all strata of society – educated / uneducated – litter public spaces. The ridiculous expectation being that the civic authorities are to clean up the litter 24/7. No country can be clean if it’s citizens litter public spaces the way Indians do.

It’s a peculiar mind set where only one’s home is considered important . Residential building compounds also have litter thrown by residents from their kitchens , balconies. Public spaces beyond the building are fair game for disposing any kind of garbage . As a result – roads , footpaths , train tracks , stations , bus stands all are teeming with garbage. Even the countryside is not spared. Take a road trip through most parts of India – you’ll see the familiar sight of plastic bags , bottles , wrappers thoughtlessly tossed everywhere.

A Clean India is possible if WE – THE CITIZENS OF INDIA – choose to make it happen . Free of litter – India can be one of the most beautiful countries in the world.

As responsible citizens lets create a country we can be proud of . Stop littering , stop others from littering .

India kuch kar !

 

 

 

The Green Job

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

 

 

We don’t get out of shape with 1 heavy meal . Nor did the environment become a crisis with a single action or even the actions of 1 nation alone. We can’t build muscle with 1 intensive workout at a gym . Neither can the environment be healed in a day .

Routine , everyday choices and actions by individuals , communities , governments , businesses have cumulatively created the challenges we face on the environment front.

We need to drop the ‘what can I do’ line of thought and the consequent inaction / status quo . Each one of us can make a difference. Together , we make change.
