Reducing upstream emissions:
Praanapoorna uses only natural products handcrafted with locally available natural raw materials such as citrus peels, soap nuts, shikakai and pure essential oils for chemical free living spaces. The raw materials are sourced from within 100 kms for 95% of the ingredients. Reduced transport contributes to reduced emissions.
Reducing Processing emissions:
As the products are handmade without heating or boiling processes, the embedded energy and therefore carbon is avoided as compared to any other product.
Reducing packaging emissions:
Praanapoorna products are handcrafted and sold in repurposed, reused, refillable containers and the supply chain is planned in a way that there is only local groups manufacturing the product to be delivered locally. This ensures producer responsibility by not creating demand for new plastic or packaging material.
End of Life emissions:
Praanapoorna promotes adoption of a chemical free zero landfill lifestyle. Landfills produce methane, which is not just a green-house gas, but also a climate powerhouse having an ability to retain 84 times more heat in our atmosphere than carbon dioxide. Therefore if we reduce-amount of waste going to landfills and reduce the amount of methane, we can have immediate climate benefits; Praanapoorna is paving a way for a zero waste future through their efforts.
