EcoRight is a young startup committed to saving our planet from the abuse of plastic. Our product line includes eco-friendly bags that are stylish yet sustainable. Our mission is to educate people about the ill effects of plastic and in doing so, provide them with sustainable, natural alternatives. In the two years of our existence, we have grown to be on all the major e-commerce platforms like Amazon, Myntra, Flipkart and acquired licensing from Disney and Marvel to make reusable bags mainstream and encourage people to ditch plastic bags.

We are offering people interesting products to go eco-friendly in a fun way. We’ve acquired licensing from Disney and Marvel to encourage people to quit plastic bags and use reusable bags. We have employed women from marginalised communities around around premises and offer them fair wages, a safe working environment, and clean water and sanitation facilities. We are a SEDEX 4 pillar audited company.
How do we activate and impel communities to join hands towards this environmental cause and create incremental, yet real change at an individual level?
Change isn’t impactful until and unless it is done at a mass level. We would love if you can introduce people to our quirky, fun and eco-friendly bags and encourage them to quit plastic bags.
