With the growing industrial sector, technological advancements, and progress, air pollution, plastic waste, and unemployment have plagued the face of the earth with far-reaching consequences:

 

  • Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) data revealed that a massive 30 percent of air pollution is caused due to the loose dust emanating from construction sites.

 

  • The World Health Organization report stated that 11 out of the top 12 cities with the highest levels of particulate pollution are located in India. 

 

  • Air pollution accounts for an estimated 4.2 million deaths per year and makes up around 12.5% of the total deaths in India per year.

  • Delhi has been ranked as the world's most polluted capital and India as having the third-worst air quality out of 106 countries in 2020. 

  •  The combined  CO2 emission of Bengaluru, Hyderabad, and Chennai is equal to Delhi’s annual carbon emission of 69.4 million tonnes.

  • A global problem, air pollution has led to a 30% increase in respiratory diseases and more than 4.2 million deaths.

  • Moreover, India generates 5.6 million tonnes of plastic waste annually. This not only harms human beings but also suffocates our oceans, lands, and the animals they sustain. With the current rate of unsustainable development, these dreadful figures will only rise.

NEED

With Ibtida we aim to utilize components like agricultural waste, fly ash, industrial waste combined with carbon-negative materials to create ingenious products that act as CO2 absorbents. 

Furthermore, Ibtida protects and stimulates the progress of local communities of traditional craftsmen. Their skills and craftsmanship are uniquely shown in their creations. We aim to empower these communities filled with the rich heritage of India.

ACTION

Project Ibtida significantly reduces agricultural and industrial waste and lowers carbon emissions. It attempts to replace plastic to enable a finer and sustainable alternative. 


Additionally, Ibtida supplements farmers by providing them the fair prices of their stubble waste thereby, generating employment opportunities for artisans involved in the manufacturing of our products. Rising through the ashes, Ibtida will lead the world towards better living.

IMPACT

Witnessing such grave issues over the years, Enactus Aryabhatta brought in a collaboration of brilliant minds to collectively undertake extensive research to devise a strategic intervention wherein scientific innovation thrives in the essence of social entrepreneurship. 


Thus, Project Ibtida was born as a one-stop solution that simultaneously tackles the problem of stubble burning, carbon emissions from the construction industries, mass generation of plastic products, and industrial byproducts!

We conceived an action plan that aims to utilize unexplored sources of pollution to promote sustainability and significantly reduce the carbon footprints. 

We synergically collaborated with GreenJams with the aim to establish a vertical that lays a two-fold impact by making products out of Agrocrete® to replace plastic products.

Net carbon emissions from manufacturing Agrocrete® products are negative in value, consuming CO2 rather than emitting it.

To expand our product lines and diversify into traditional art forms, we collaborated with the local communities to employ traditional craftsmen, artisans, and potters by enabling them to keep their art alive.
