Corporate Social Responsibility
Ecodyne Tableware does not only tell the story of how ancient Indian ethos is steeped deep inside nature, but it also tells the story of the people who transformed a piece of sustainable natural waste into an artisanal eco-friendly disposable tableware. Our philosophy is to make sustainable living a part of people's everyday life. With the ideology to give back to society.
Ever since inception, Conservia has endeavoured to nurture inclusive communities by creating microentrepreneurs and employment opportunities in the hinterland of rural southern India which in turn has contributed in raising the rural living conditions significantly. Value creation through entrepreneurship and production, has fortified the local rural economy in the rural communities where the manufacture happens. Our partnerships with local micro-entrepreneurs has enabled the farming and other rural communities to complement their income and build an ecosystem that fosters community of business.
As an ISO 14001:2015 compliant company, Conservia is working towards a greener planet. We make a conscious effort to keep the Planet clean. All our efforts are focused on making our community a better place, from the sourcing of the raw materials to the manufacturing process and the final product.
We use sustainably sourced raw materials - the fallen areca palm leaf to create our eco-friendly, biodegradable and compostable range of products. Even the water used for the production is 90% reused after RO and UV treatment since there is no solid and toxic waste in the used water. As an industry first all our manufacturing sites use solar power for manufacuring.
Ecodyne Tableware is chemical-free, 100% natural, and organic.
