150 Diaries with Handmade paper for a Financial Conference

Sustainability is all about Triple Bottom lines, and what better could it be, when the financial sector itself starts thinking and implementing sustainability? Capital9, based in Bengaluru, is one of India's leading financial and loan advisory consultancy. When they planned a conference for 150 of their eminent clients in Bengaluru and Hyderabad, they decided to gift them Aarohana's UPCYCLED-HANDWOVEN Diary covers with Handmade paper diaries in them! Not just this, they wrote a special writeup for their customers, inside the diary, telling their customers the importance of the gift they were receiving. Our Diary covers and Handmade paper diaries in them, are a very popular gifting item, especially with the Corporate sector. We customize the size of the diary cover according to the size requirement of the diary to be inserted in it. If customers have their own diaries, we get a sample shipped from them and make the cover as per those dimensions!

Annual Day with UPCYCLED-HANDWOVEN gifts for Teachers and Staff

Saplings Nursery is one of its kind! It is a school with a visionary Principal, Kamala Idgunji, and a whole bunch of super enthusiastic teachers and staff. They themselves follow Sustainability in their school, and teach the same to their tiny tots who come to play and learn everyday! A few weeks before their Annual day, Ms. Idgunji met our CoFounder Amita Deshpande at a craft exhibition in Baner and was astonished to see our products made from waste plastic. She immediately made up her mind to gift our products to all of her teachers and staff of over 500. That was a huge order for us at that time, as we were still a small team! In addition, she invited us to conduct some awareness sessions about Sustainable Development and Plastic waste in their school and then led a whole plastic collection drive in their school! We are still in touch with them and love their zeal to create better citizens for our Planet's future!
