We At Enactus
Enactus students put into effective use of their propitious power of business, innovation, and entrepreneurial action to address the most pertinent issues affecting the world through diverse and fresh perspectives while empowering people and creating livelihood. Ever since the inception of Enactus Aryabhatta in 2016, the student-led team of young entrepreneurs embarked on this glorious journey towards building a community that is socially, economically, and environmentally sustained.
What we do
We ensure judicious use of resources, reducing waste and promoting recycling to curb the social issues prevailing in our society.
With the increase in the pollution of floral waste and textile industries, student entrepreneurs at Enactus Aryabhatta sought to break through these hardships by initiating a project named Palaash.
‘Palaash’ is an abstract that turned into an innovation by merging art with an environmental conscience, academic knowledge, and innovative ideas with the will to succeed.
Providing High Quality Products
Our project brought together the source of floral waste and textiles under a single umbrella. Project Palaash aims to salvage these flowers and create organic dyes that are purely non-synthetic in nature. These organic dyes are used on fabrics, these fabrics are dyed by the victims of human trafficking thereby creating employment opportunities for destitute community members. These women entrepreneurs undergo skill development training for dyeing and block printing on fabrics.
The dupattas and scarves manufactured under project Palaash are sold directly to the customers ensuring B2C through stalls set up at college fests, cultural fares, and handicraft outlets. This in turn facilitates the promotion of sustainable fashion. We aim to uphold the trend of fashion by taking into account both environmental and socio-economic aspects by improving all the stages of production and recycling for the sustainable management of resources. Project Palaash has successfully created employment opportunities while curbing the menace of water and soil pollution. Our model ensures effective waste management mechanism as the bio-waste generated from the dyeing process is used to create compost which is reutilized for growing flowers. The wastewater generated in during the preparation of the dye vat is used to water plants ensuring sustainability.
Project Palaash through the enlightening endeavors of Enactus Aryabhatta, has evidently strove towards reviving this world through sustainable measures by healing the environment and making it our safe haven. Enactus Aryabhatta believes to not settle for anything less than excellence. With even more diligence and devotion, we continue to strive towards chasing a better tomorrow.
Palaash is a blooming flower in itself where all the petals of the flower signify the various environmental and social impacts of the project. Once it blossoms, it fills the fragrance of self-reliance and confidence in our beneficiaries while also promoting the evergreen traditional forms of handloom and craftsmanship.
Palaash is definitely a dedicated step towards sustainability and a major realization of our responsibilities towards our environment.
Personally, it fills me with utmost joy and pride to see Palaash touching the hearts of people. The products serve the message of responsible consumption and sustainability.
Palaash – Naam Me Hi Aas Hai.
