Products: Re-usable cutlery kit
Vision: Reduce your waste footprint, one step at a time!
Story: Ecodeeds was founded by Gargee Vasavada, an economist by education, with a desire to spread awareness about garbage pollution created from single use products. “ I have tried to practice a low waste for a few years. Ecodeeds is a cumulative result of that. It is also an effort to bring back into routine the idea of reusability and sustainability, both of which we have seen practiced in our households no more than 3 decades ago. A low waste lifestyle isn't just the current fad and Ecodeeds can show you how! Ecodeeds was started in January 2019, out of a need to create and offer sustainable products for everyday use and with an objective to spread awareness about the rampant waste produced from single use products. After extensive research and having lived a low-waste style myself starting with investing in cloth diapers at the birth of my child in 2016, I realized the simplicity, affordability and the urgency in partaking in a lifestyle that leaves behind little to no waste says Gargee Vasavada, the founder of Ecodeeds.
She also mentions that “If one was to follow activists and low-waste proponents on social media, one would think that India is accelerating towards becoming the cleanest country in the world. But this is far from the truth. Our daily routine is consumed by damaging single use products, the repercussions of which, we don’t even realize, are harming the environment. Whether it is our eating habits, our grooming or even our clothing, waste from all these seemingly harmless activities have a lasting effect on the environment. Ecodeeds is an effort to bring down this waste by making sustainable products as alternatives to daily use items that are single use. We avoid plastic in any form. These are long term purchases and each product is put together with care and a thought towards its end use.”
By far, the most satisfying association since we started Ecodeeds has been a recent one where in the Rangoli tailoring unit under YWCA Bangalore helped us make our kora bags. It's a humbling experience and we are happy to contribute even a little to their livelihoods added Gargee Vasavada.
