Over 40 lookalikes recorded till date
We began to see our product look alikes or adaptations all over the place from the second year of our inception. Our Government, other entrepreneurs, NGO’s and even the Ramkrishna Mission has used our work extensively often without any acknowledgment of the Brand. Our products are not intimidating or "too refined" and invite "copiers" to appropriate the design.
If you want to replicate this in your region, do get in touch and we can see how to work together. If you just go ahead and copy - do send us a photograph of the product and it will appear on this page!
Our focus on replicability, coupled with visual, jargon free communication has helped us create the home composting market where there was none in our country.
It has inspired others to begin their businesses in sustainability and may the tribe increase! This is Design working at its best!
