Behind Astu Eco are two enterprising and innovative women: Anitha Shankar and Tejshree Madhu who went from 'armchair green supporters to active environmentalists'. The duo started the enterprise with an intent to rid India of the plastic menace that is rampant today.
It was deeply disturbing to see plastic litter everywhere, on road sides, in parks, in lakes and water bodies, in landfills and in the garbage pile next to education institutes. We were traumatised by the sheer mess of growing garbage on our roadsides and the painful visuals of our urban domestic animals feeding on plastic in the garbage. The story was almost the same in every large city we went. It appeared that the garbage and plastic menace stood unchallenged. And all the cities collective misery festered. And elsewhere in the world, turtles, dolphins, goats, sheep, fish and many innocent animals were dying a painful death because they ate plastic. It was heart wrenching. To just watch.
That is when we decided to move from being armchair green supporters to active environmentalists.
And Astu Eco was born. A sustainable business that makes ecofriendly products that are alternatives to harmful disposable plastic.
Alternatives to simple daily use products such as toothbrushes and straws made of natural materials like bamboo and coir are quickly becoming an essential in many households, because of their ecofriendliness, biodegradability and overall safety for the body and health. While a plastic product will sit in a landfill forever and release toxic chemicals as it decays, an ecofriendly one naturally decomposes after it has been disposed of. In our already overpolluted world, this is why switching over to products made of chemicalfree earthfriendly products is so crucial.
Why we like it
While switching to a natural body scrubber may seem like an insignificant change, data shows that we could all make a big difference if we each committed to doing things a better way by making small changes to our daily routines. When we say this product is the best, we don't just mean it's the best for you. It's also what's best for the planet!
This coir loofah makes it very easy to embrace zero waste living without making any major changes to my lifestyle and habits. Once immersed in water, it becomes spongy and soft, making it gentle on the body. I love the fact that besides being the right choice for the environment, it's safer for my body, too.
