We have formed a company named 'Ecolyst India' to promote sustainable living for everyone at an affordable price. There are multiple projects associated with this to make it possible soon. To start with, we are looking forward to rent a place and start a waste segregation unit where we can collect all sort of waste we get to see in our area, separate them and dispatch to the corresponding recycling units. The left over items which usually goes to the landfills, will be processed and utilized in making crafts, upcycling them.
Our plan includes collecting tender coconut shells from the local street vendors, food waste & other bio waste from restaurants and street vendors, other wastes from road side, empty lands and convert them to fertilizers. These fertilizers can be sold on commercial basis and also will be utilized for planting trees on road sides in and around the city. The profits earned hence will be invested on local street vendors providing them sustainable products at a discounted price so that they will not be impacted by the higher price to be sustainable. For example, we will collect the used cooking oil from restaurants and supply eco friendly packaging materials in return, supporting them to buy new cooking oil. We will also be replacing the plastic straws and paper straws with wheat straws.
Also, we will be putting up stalls to sell beverages and snacks in not so famous but crowd pulling tourist places. The profit margin will be used in maintaining that area eco friendly and clean. At a later stage, we will be funding street arts once we clean an area to paint it with colors of India !
