Let’s come together to revive and restore the lost colours of nature
India is incredible; let’s make it garbage-free!
With this dream, our journey started in Kolkata when friends came together to do something positive for the city they love. Instead of conversations filled with cynicism, we were optimistic that collective conversations and actions could address the apathy of individuals.
When people come together for a positive cause, we believe that change is possible. These conversations led us to create the Garbage Free India (GFI) platform, where people came together to take action in their communities.
Today, we have journeyed from addressing why people litter, have an apathy towards managing their household waste to addressing various SDG goals with a focus on climate change and waste mismanagement. Our experiences and our learnings from the pandemic have led us to evolve and redesign our programs. We understand that people want to do something but don’t know how to, and here’s where we, through our learn-by-doing programs, enable people to take individual and local climate action.
WE BELIEVE THAT SMALL ACTS CAN LEAD TO GREAT IMPACT. SO LET’S COME TOGETHER TO REVIVE AND RESTORE THE LOST COLOURS OF NATURE!
To Restore our ‘natural heritage’ and drive ‘climate action’.
Empower individuals & communities with the proper knowledge, tools and support to initiate responsible production, consumption and waste management journey.
GFI is registered under Section 25 of the Companies Act of 1956 (equivalent to Section 8 of the Company's Act 2013).
The letters, GFI, take the shape of three interlinked circles.
Each circle represents a key stakeholder: governments that can act and legislate; businesses that can create less waste and adopt better practices; and consumers who can be the agents of change. Together, through their mutual relationship, they create an outcome that’s greater than the sum of their individual efforts.
The colour palette is based on nature, more specially from the forest, to tie in GFI’s focus on environmentalism.
