Hi, I’m Gayatri!
Whenever I went to the supermarket with my cloth bag, I’d end up coming back home with it filled with numerous plastic covers that packed all the things I had to buy. This just seemed crazy!
I thought about this a lot: When we have Kirana stores, (that sell everyday lentils, rice etc in bulk) at every corner, why do we need to go to a supermarket and buy everything packed in packaging? So I asked my friends and family about why they didn’t like shopping at a Kirana shop and the main concern was hygiene and safety of the food & products.
As a community, we prefer to buy packaged products. The packaging acts as a “certification”. But where were the safe, hygienic and trusted products that did not create waste?
If I can’t find a space to live zero waste myself, maybe others are looking for it too
I began my journey to look for packaging-free solutions and I started ecoSansar, to give my friends, family and the community a space to shop zero waste. At ecoSansar, we are creating a market place for end-to-end sustainable options-- Everything that you would need for a zero-waste lifestyle from a sustainable source.
