Aarohana EcoSocial Developments is a Social Enterprise working to conserve the environment and enable tribal livelihoods. Our latest initiative is that of upcycling WASTE PLASTIC bags using a unique process of weaving using a traditional CHARKHA AND HANDLOOM by our tribal youth and women. To make our initiative self-sustainable, we make several products for consumer use such as handbags and accessories, home decor and office utility products.
Amita Deshpande and Nandan Bhat founded Aarohana EcoSocial Developments in October 2013, with a belief that development is 'sustainable' only if it is bottom-up. Hence, this initiative of upcycling plastic bags focuses on employing the grassroots of the society on one hand, and on the other hand, works on generating awareness among consumers about an alternate conscious lifestyle products which they can adopt for daily use. Both, Amita and Nandan, are engineers by basic education. Amita has pursued her Masters degree in Sustainable Developments from the USA and worked there in the same field as a consultant. Nandan has pursued his Masters degree in Business Development and has worked in several multinational corporations before starting Aarohana with Amita in 2013.
