Our story

With the intention of taking small steps for our mother Earth this Project took birth on the Earth Day, 22nd April 2007.

 The Environmental Protection Agency shows that somewhere between 800 billion and one trillion plastic bags are consumed every year with the average person using 25000 plastic bags in his or her lifetime. However, less than 1% of plastic bags are recycled as recycling plastic bags cost more than producing new ones! From the design end, we created, tested and improved the prototype of environment friendly bags.

Fold it back to the size of your pocket when not in use! 

Stylish, light, sturdy and compact! Every bag is made from a blended of 50% cotton with 50% polyester or 100% cotton fabric, making it durable, light, tough and fungus free.

SMALLSTEPS

Plastic bags are littering our streets, highways, open spaces, gardens, parks, storm water drains, water bodies, channels, beaches, forests and agricultural fields across rural and urban landscapes. The Environmental Protection Agency shows that somewhere between 800 billion and one trillion plastic bags are consumed every year with the average person using 25000 plastic bags in his or her lifetime. However, less than 1% of plastic bags are recycled as recycling plastic bags cost more than producing new ones!

The situation was grim, and we decided to take action. Smallsteps Project was initiated and funded by Upasana Design Studio, Auroville. It was launched on Earth Day, 22nd April 2007. From the design end, we created, tested and improved the prototype of environment friendly bags.

The bag comes in four styles and 9 colours, with all bags conveniently folding into a small portable pouch. The Small Steps bag is designed to be convenient, lightweight and easily portable; it’s small enough to clip onto a belt loop or bicycle.

EMPOWERING WOMEN

Small Steps project was initiated and funded by Upasana Design Studio, Auroville.It was launched on Earth Day, 22nd April 2007. From the design end, we created, tested and improved the prototype of environment friendly bags. We have also designed multiple posters, brochures to raise awareness about the benefits of using cloth bags in general. The bags have achieved great success and we want to make this product reach out to more people. ​ What can a little bag do?

• Every single bag can effectively prevent dumping of at least 200 throw-away plastic bags, if not more.

 • Every single bag can provide a meaningful job to women who are empowering themselves.

• Every single bag can educate a whole family about environmental issues. It is not only about making a better world, It is also about changing ourselves, learning new values, taking responsibility, loving our mother earth. It is our love in action.
