GARBAGE TO GROWTH
Our leaders Amit Somaiya (CEO and Co-Founder), Ashok Vithlani (Co-Founder), Prashant Parikh (Commercial Director), Ketan Shah (CFO), and Nupur Gupta (Company Secretary) visited the cantonment board and were moved not only by the welcoming environment but also by the stories shared by the women ragpickers. These women now make re-cycled products, such as bags, bottles, garlands, etc., and are full-time employees who provide for their families, earning their family's and community's respect. We are grateful for them for cleansing the city and send our best wishes to these unsung heroes.
