A key point Mansi highlighted was that most people still don’t know what sustainability truly stands for. "In this technical day & age, we’re constantly being bombarded with news and information all the time with no sure way of knowing whom to actually believe." This calls for people & brands to rise to the task of making sustainability simple & accessible for everyone out there.
It was during this time of uncertainty and confinement, that we at Sirohi came out with the Weave Your Own Mini Charpai Initiative which would engage people irrespective of their age or gender, and help them acquire a new skill. With the help of our DIY Mini Charpai kits, people could now create aesthetic & culturally grounded pieces of furniture for themselves, from the comfort of their homes.
In our most recent collaboration with 200 million artisans, we asked people to send us stories about the women in their lives who inspire them to think differently & act responsibly. This response shares the same sentiment & is an excellent example of the fact that inspiration can be found anywhere and anytime!
“I felt that while I have many sarees to wear, I also have many stories to share, for which I had never found the time before. Rather than being stressed and depressed because of the uncertainty the lockdown imposed on everyone, I wanted to turn it into an opportunity.” ~ Jyotsna Grover Sethi
