Noyyal Go Green - Saving Earth And Powering Women

How we Started?

My journey started at volunteering in Siruthuli, an NGO based in Coimbatore, India which works to rejuvenate the water sources in the city of Coimbatore.

While volunteering I learnt how the water resources are affected by plastics that are dumped in it. Since then I started to use my own bags for shopping and completely stopped bringing in any kind of plastic bags inside our home.

At the same time I saw these women struggling to meet their daily needs, struggling to go to work with kids and family around.

While educating my friends and families to use reusable cloth bags, I involved these women who know basic stitching, trained them and started stitching bags for friends and families. After seeing the response, I wanted to extend this to rest of the world. Changing few people in itself makes a big difference in number of plastic bags that are thrown in the dump yards everyday.
