I’m sustainable

Growing up in a Tier two city in India in the 90s we did everything with the aim of circularity without even realizing that is what we were doing. From a family going on a small two-wheeler to local markets in town, to re-purposing elder siblings clothes, and eating seasonal and local produce, circularity is an important view with which I reflect on sustainability and the state of the present environment of the world. My interaction with the world of sustainability is further enhanced by a conscious effort to stay more in touch with nature, through my hobbies of trekking and walking in nature.

The future I want

The dream is to inhabit a world where more and more people are conscious, reflective, and accountable towards their impact on the environment, and where every stakeholder realizes that small actions will not only impact us but also the world. The responsibility rests with all of us.
