We're celebrating our anniversary today at Ekam. And this seven year journey began with a 24-year-old boy, Uttam Banerjee.
As a young man from Bokaro, Uttam grew up around green hills and clean rivers. But that wasn't what he saw any longer when he moved to first Mumbai, and then Delhi.
He spent more time in Delhi where he discovered more than 300 drain lines pouring our industrial and residential waste directly into Yamuna.
Together with Sachin, he incubated Ekam Eco solutions at IIT Delhi in 2013 with a plan to close the sanitation loop with a series of design projects.
In the 7️⃣ years that the team has been around, Ekam's products have made a huge impact.
More than 12,000 Zerodor Waterless Urinals that are in use today save ~1800 crore liters of water every year 🚰
And in the last 9 months alone, 4500+ families used 12,000 liters of CARE cleaners. This helps keep out at least the same amount of toxic chemicals out of the water bodies 🐟, if not more. in ~265 cities across the country, positively impacting millions of people who live there.
On our 7th anniversary, we strive to make larger leaps going forward. To that effect, we’ve launched new products that feature an All-Natural Fruit and Vegetable wash and a Hand Wash to keep you safe in the times we find ourselves in.👨👩👦 Hear about these products and the story behind them from Uttam in the video👇
