  • Description

    Description

    We are R&D driven social venture focused on developing solutions in alternate energy, clean technologies, and pro-nature applications. Sanitation is the main issue in rural and urban space, we are working on developing sustainable tech-driven toilets for tough use with the least intervention required. We take an R&D approach of solutions to reduce the impact on city sewage infrastructure through reuse.

    We are currently looking for volunteers for an annual music festival in valley where we would be working on Eco toilets. They are made up of recyclable plastics which would have otherwise ended up in landfills. Utilizing these resources by the means of transformation, we are seeking help in executing these easy to install and transport eco-toilets for the festival.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Something that's really interesting about helping on this project is the fact that we are facilitating the services for the annual music festival. Located in Arunachal Pradesh, this tribal terrain hosts its music festival every year that is attended by youths from in and outside of the country. Apart from the exposure to the beauty and culture of the place and its people, we will also learn about becoming environment conscious as it is our main drive for the project. On a work level, we will receive an understanding of how we are working towards the goal of sustainable eco-toilets. By the means of exchange of ideas, and employing different techniques and skills, we would like to take this opportunity as a great time to learn for everyone involved.
