Process Overview

1. Measure: 

rePurpose works with IndiaRF to quantify the plastic footprint of the organization, that is a sum total of the plastic usage for their employees, facilities and events. The plastic footprint is determined through a set of tools including our proprietary calculator and personalized survey questionnaires. On an average, we found an employee’s footprint to be 59 kilograms of plastic, while the footprint of office facilities to be 318 Kilograms.

2. reBalance: 

IndiaRF pays to offset their organization’s unique plastic footprint at Rs 35/kg. Their contribution guarantees the ethical recovery and recycling of an equivalent amount of plastic waste, stemming its flow from our oceans and landfills, and supporting underserved waste workers in India.

3. Reduce: 

IndiaRF’s employees receive ongoing, personalized green living tips based on their unique footprint, that enables them to live and work more consciously and reduce their everyday impact on the environment.
