Smallsteps turns 11!

Let’s Team up to Clean up

In the streets of Kuilapalayam Village, Upasana with Smallsteps and Well bags held the Cleanup drive this Earth Day to raise awareness about avoiding usage of plastic bags. The cleanup team worked for about and hour picking up everything from used plastic water bottles and bags to sweeping cigarette butts in the masses.

Indeed, good deeds are contagious. As we were picking up trash, a man who barely spoke English was watching us. Eventually, he started helping with many more informally.

About Smallsteps

Small Steps project was initiated and funded by Upasana Design Studio, Auroville. It was launched on Earth Day, 22nd April 2007.

Smallsteps bags are reusable handmade shopping bags. Using one Smallsteps bag can prevent the usage of over 500 disposable plastic bags that a single person would use over a year. It is a tiny effort which contributes a great deal to the environment. These bags are stitched by women from villages in Tamil Nadu, India.
