Our Story

We produce and market biodegradable disposable dinnerware, through community owned micro-enterprises spread across North East India. The tableware provides quality green alternatives to urban and global customers and generates sustainable livelihoods amongst rural women and youth, locally. We envisage to replace 2000 MT of toxic disposable plates annually by 2025 and in the process generate employment for 20000 rural women and youth.
