WHAT WE DO
Plastic Ware Suck!
Plastic has become the biggest problem on the earth and for our environment. For more than 2 years we have been hearing of how single-use plastic ware end up in our landfills and oceans, where they harm marine life and release toxic pollutants. we're now even able to trace micro-plastics in our food sources.
Everyday we read dozens of articles about plastic polluting the oceans. Government of India banned single use plastic in 25 states of India, but with lack of alternatives and low consumer awareness, illegal trade of plastic disposables is still continuing. Although plastic recycling is one of the solutions but it is a poorly managed business in India . Due to lack of technology and training to recycle different plastics, unscientific segregation is done by untrained rag pickers which rather causes harm to environment.
Every year people living in North India especially in NCR Regions, face tremendous problem of pollution which is actually caused due to farmers in UP, Haryana and Punjab, who burn agro - residue to clear fields. Forest Biomass is a major cause of forest fires in Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh.
India has largest bamboo cover in the world. Bamboo is non wood biomass available abundantly in India. Government of India is promoting bamboo cultivation across major bamboo states to enhance farmers livelihood in poor agriculture regions of India. But due to lack of technology and industrial applications, the commercial value of bamboo crop is still very low for the farmers.
Biomize aims at bridging all these gaps that have become a burning need of our society and our environment. At BIOMIZE, we are committed at developing Eco - friendly, biodegradable and sustainable alternatives that are commercially viable as well as cost effective. We at Biomize are working on several technologies that is replacing plastic with 100% biodegradable materials. These materials when disposed off at the end of its life cycle, can be used to make compost without any expensive recycling process. Bamboo and Agro/ forest residue being our primary raw-material, we target to tackle the major problems of land, air and water pollution along with social initiative of rural employment generation and higher income to farmers.
