EcoAd aims to make cities of India free from plastic carry bags. They envision a future of India greener than today and want to create a greener tomorrow. Their mission is to replace conventional non eco-friendly products with economically viable eco-friendly products.They are starting by replacing plastic bags with paper bags. As a side effect they also provide advertisements having a lasting, deeper and wider impression. The last interaction of a vendor with their customer is the packaging. Providing a recycled, eco friendly packaging which is reused leaves them feeling really good. Involving small scale industries promotes the growth of the rural sector. Training hard-working labor and providing them with the skills to manufacture high quality products is their way to ensure that goodwill spreads through all sections of society.
