Sustainable Packaging for Sustainable Business

Is there an alternative to plastic packaging? Can we put

Sustainability is the key to leading an impactful life. As a person or as a business being sustainable is important. It comes with efforts and mindset to bring a change in society. The founder of Parama Naturals Geeta Prakash and Co-founder of Sampoorna Ahara Shyamala Suresh have given their insights for their sustainable business and packaging.

Design and Product

Geeta’s first inspiration are her parents, who believed in using the same product for different purposes. That has slowly transformed to drive Parama Natural’s simplistic wellness vision. Her children have also shaped Parama’s focus on purity.  While helping her son with projects and tie up with non profit organisations she has seen the impact of waste that we generate on the water bodies. She told that around 60%- 70% of grey water generated from households is released untreated in the water bodies harming the aquatic life and water bodies. In a medical conference, she attended in France she learnt that skin cancer stands at second biggest cancer in Western Europe.  And this was attributed to leave on products like leave in moisturiser.

Sampoorna Ahara’s – India’s first Whole Food Plant Based social Enterprise. Their product lies in good healthy food – which translate into both daily meals as well as snacks. Sampoorna Ahara specialises in Whole Plant Based Food – which implies dairy free, oil free meals. These come with its own challenges. Right from delivery routing to even cooling down food before it is sent. Making their effort to be plastic free they use containers made up of steel and hot boxes for the completely plant based meal. The meal is fresh and oil free with minimum salt making it healthy and preservatives free.

The pandemic was difficult for every business as the delivery has to be contact free and precautions needed to be taken. As a plastic free enterprise, it was difficult for Samoorna Ahara to find an alternative for steel boxes but their creative thinking and readiness for collaboration had made them find an alternative. They used biodegradable boxes instead of plastic which shows their determination for sustainability. Alongside the meal they also send healthy sweets and butters to their consumer which cannot be sent in biodegradable boxes so they use glass and tin boxes for the packaging, making it healthy and sustainable.

Integrate Zero Waste Design in Buildings: Training Program

Imagine a beautiful township, that has lush green areas surrounding it. Everyone wants to live in a beautiful space like this. Designing for people, also means designing landscapes, buildings to manage the aftermath of consumption – i.e. waste?
Can you optimize space, reduce costs, align with environmental compliance and deliver on long term sustainable waste management? Are failed technologies, and operating overheads giving you a nightmare? Worried about the reputation post-delivery of project?

Here are two words that we believe in: ZERO WASTE.
We mean it, we don’t like wasting money, we don’t like wasting time, and we don’t like wasting space for the wrong technology in the right place.

ProEarth Ecosystems and INORA have been implementing zero waste projects for many years now. We bring to you our insights, and processes from on ground experience of implementing Waste Management – straight from the experts. Together ProEarth and INORA manage 1 Lakh+ households’ waste every day, managing approximately 400 tonnes of wet waste per day.

Zero Waste communities are the future. But in order to get there, let’s re-design our spaces in the planning process. Right from, space, design – integrating living circular economy principles. Plus, what’s more is that these directly feed into IGBC Green Ratings and Environmental Compliance. If you are worried about technologies, processes – and implementation, then this is a workshop that will assist you in transform the spaces you are creating and integrate Zero Waste philosophy in your designs.

Register for our 2 day workshop, that will train you to implement Zero Waste elements in design.
