Avoid 120 tonnes of food waste going to landfills every month, by end of 2022. 4. 4000 families being able to consume chemical free food, will bring in a direct impact on their physical health which is inclined towards the vision of Clean Body 5. Through organic marketing, spreading awareness about the existing solutions, to bring in positive impact on the combined perception to take initiatives brings an impact on Clean mind. 6.
