#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.



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.

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.



Going Eco the Genius Way

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

At Clean Planet, we’re a little crazy and believe we can change the world. We set off on the road less taken, making reusable and eco stylish totes with innovation all over our mind. We wanted to make a tote that would be path breaking and creatively stimulating.

An ode to Mr. Jobs, Tote Imagine is a call to recognise the genius in you. It is crafted out of 100% eco friendliness and spirit to explore endless possibilities. Steve Jobs has been a continuing source of inspiration to us with his pioneering spirit of imagination. It’s created a new world order!

Imagine saving the world from 300 plastic bags per person per year. Daily use of this eco tote up scales the awesomeness & cleanliness quotient of our planet whilst letting one be who they really are. Tote Imagine is a call to action to enliven the crazy one and genius within all of us.

At Clean Planet, we often emphasise on the importance of a sustainable lifestyle. Add to this dashing eco style and you get the best products.

Collaborate with us in making this one heck of planet! We’d like for folks to get it on with their gray cells and make this world a work of art.

Kuch Karo Tote

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

The World we create is the world we inhabit. That makes us a whole lot responsible for it. All of our action or in-action affects the larger picture. We are the larger picture! Let’s not hesitate then in doing our bit. It is very well within our capacity to be aware, involved and passionate about our world.

How do you feel when something bad happens? What if Keenan Santos and Reuben Fernandez were one of yours or what if someone you cared for was caught in similar plight? They lost their lives for standing up against assault. We can make a big difference as individuals and as a collective if we choose to be beyond bystanders.

At Clean Planet we believe that – ‘No one can do everything, but everyone can do A LOT! Don’t underestimate the capability of individual capacity. If Gandhi were still alive he would surely encourage us to speak and act when we see or hear the unacceptable.  Kuch Karo Tote is a call to action to do something, anything because it will help create a better world!

Compact Tote – Genius

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

The nifty Compact Tote unfolds into a sturdy bag ideal for spontaneous shopping and folds back into a neat pouch when not in use.

It is literally a compact end to all excuses for not using a reusable bag !:) By consistently using a reusable bag a typical urban resident can easily save 300 plastic bags from polluting the planet . A small (consistent) action that goes a long way towards making this a Clean(er) Planet.

Watch the Compact Tote Genius in action !

* Available in a range of contemporary , eco stylish designs at the Clean Planet Store .



The 'model' totes…

The local veg market

Compact Tote among veggies

The eco purchase in progress

The vibrant fruits and veggies

"I wish all my customers would bring a reusable bag to buy veggies"..thought the veg seller :)

We’ve been taking pics of our tote family for the online store. We’re trying to be as eco friendly as possibly using natural light for most of the pics. Folks in the building intrigued, amused, think we have a really cool job (which we do).

The bags virtually have a mind of their own. They change their expressions often and unexpectedly ( we now have huge admiration and respect for folks who photograph birds and animals )

Last week the scene of action moved to a local vegetable market for photography of the Compact Totes . The vegetable sellers and customers who happened to be at the market then were curious and interested. One good outcome was that it helped them to appreciate the value of a reusable cloth bag..

A few decades ago a visit to the local veg market necessarily meant carrying you own reusable bag . The veg vendors had no plastic to give away. This is one of the aspects of life where it’s appropriate and essential to say “let’s bring back the good old days”.

Awesome customer service

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

A colleague recently encountered service at a dept store that should frankly be classified as a criminal offence. If this was the US the store would have been served a legal notice by now.

Discussing the episode got us thinking about examples of outstanding, exemplary service that touches your heart , brings a smile to your face. It could be at a store , with an airline , a phone company , vada pav stall outside your office , restaurant…hell even a government dept (yeah we are incorrigible optimists ).

There are companies for whom business means more than a means to make money. And individuals for whom a job is more than a way to earn a living.

We’d like to celebrate all such individuals and companies. If you have encountered awesome service write in to share your experience here at Clean Planet world and on our Facebook page.
