Enactus SAC

The Enactus Sri Aurobindo College, was launched on 1st august 2016 under the able guidance of our faculty member, MR. PREM SINGH. The first year, the` project mishtaan’ involved training and unemployed man to cook various dishes and training him for his living and also for his family growth. The main aim of this society is to provide employment, training and education to unprivileged people.

The Enactus SAC which is a non-profitable organisation is dedicated to inspiring students to improve the world through entrepreneurial actions. It provides a platform for teams to create co munity development projects that put people’s own ingenuity and talents at the centre of improving livelihoods and aims to create a difference in society by the entrepreneurial actions, which would help in upliftment in the lives of the underprivileged people and enhancement of business skills. It also makes a lot of effort in the team development and make sure all its members have an opportunity to grow.

Currently ENACTUS SAC is one of the most active society amongst colleges in India. We have an eminent team working rigorously towards the projects- Project Ankur, Project Haritah, Project Pratyahar.

PROJECT ANKUR

Plastic pollution is the accumulation of plastic objects and particles in the Earth's environment that adversely affects wildlife, wildlife habitat, and humans. These modern day conveniences are so ubiquitous and so quickly thrown out that they hardly register in our minds. But single-use plastics come with a steep environmental price. Single-use plastics are a glaring example of the problems with throwaway culture. We often prioritize convenience over durability without considering its long-term impacts. Our reliance on these plastics means we are accumulating waste at a staggering rate.

Plastic pens are one of the most widely used writing tools in the world. Every year India discards millions of plastic pens. In Delhi alone, approximately 5,34,91,000 pens are discarded every year highlighting the pressing need to engender a change.

A plastic pollution free world is not a choice but a commitment to life - a commitment to the next generation and we at Enactus SAC have embarked on a journey to curb this situation with our Project Ankur. With a mission to keep a check on single use plastic, we came up with an alternative after thorough research which is bamboo. Bamboo pens are not only environment friendly but also feasible. With an effort to inspire people to live a sustainable life, we opted for the same with the motive of converting it back into a tree.

The product is conceptualised and manufactured by a local family of carpenters in Delhi who were trained by the volunteers of Enactus SAC. The raw material for bamboo is acquired from small local shops of Delhi. The grip of the pen is a biodegradable thread and each pen has a seed bought from the local nurseries which would be planted on the discard of the pens. We have enumerated the prices of our articles at a prominent range, but also at the same time allows us to keep a profit margin for our further use. Apart from its durability, comfort and looks, we managed to set a competitive market price for our product. We made the whole pen in just ₹9.5 and decided to market it for ₹13 to ₹13.5 to retail shops, ₹12.5 to ₹13 to schools and institutions directly and fixed the market price to ₹15. Thereby making a reasonable profit with every sale we make. Cheaper and varied offering will help us capture a wider market in a short span of time without compromising its quality. We made sure our promotion was structured in the very line of instigating the essence of sustainability and eco-friendly products amongst our audience. Project Ankur has intricately utilised the expertise of the conventional carpenters.

We have become stern believers of the innate potential within us and with time, our youth has shown remarkable interest in choosing environmentally friendly products in place of plastic made products. Project Ankur is a culminated product of intensive ideation to imply business tactics and substantial technological aid. The crucial step in our trajectory from the producer end to the consumer end is the marketing of the articles. We have successfully empowered and created a chain of supply between the carpenters and the distributors of the articles.

Seeing the enormous need and opportunity, we plan on capturing schools in Delhi NCR and its adjoining areas with the motive of inculcating environment friendly pens in the day to day lives. Working tirelessly to bring about a change, we aspire to make sustainable stationary kit for students in the near future. The anticipated positive impact of our project is the awareness among our target audience regarding the negative impact of single use plastic and the ardent need to switch to eco-friendly articles. A minor change in our daily routine can bring about an everlasting change in our society and with Project Ankur, we wish to inculcate in people, a sense of responsibility. When we dream alone it is only a dream, but when many dream together it is the beginning of a new reality. Together we aspire to do a lot more. This year, we pledge to choose a cleaner, plastic-free environment.

Project Haritah

Plastic pollution is the accumulation of plastic objects and particles in the Earth's environment that adversely affects wildlife, wildlife habitat, and humans. Killing millions and millions of humans as well as animals is a clear indication of how noxious plastic pollution is. These modern conveniences are so ubiquitous and so quickly thrown out that they hardly register in our minds. But single-use plastics come with a steep environmental price, one that we’ll be paying off for millennia. Single-use plastics are a glaring example of the problems with throwaway culture. Instead of investing in quality goods that will last, we often prioritize convenience over durability and consideration of long-term impacts.

Plastic pollution free world is not a choice but a commitment to life - a commitment to the next generation and we at Enactus SAC have embarked on a journey to curb this situation with our ‘Project Haritah’. Sustainability is going to be the survival stunt in the near future. Project Haritah is a vocal initiative in the same line. The only way out of the voracious cycle of plastic pollution is to substitute it with better and more sustainable articles. Project Haritah is going to be of substantial aid in discarding the use of single use plastic to a gargantuan level. Seeing the need and the opportunity, we introduced our project Haritah with the aim to bring about a change.

Working tirelessly to replace single use plastic with reusable bamboo articles, we wish to bring about a change. Project Haritah unequivocally endorses the UNDP goals and works on the manoeuvre to make things better, to make life sustainable. The UNDP goals fulfilled by Project Haritah are Goal 14 which focuses on preventing and significantly reducing marine pollution of all kinds, in particular from land-based activities, including marine debris and nutrient pollution and Goal 15 which seeks to protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss.

Project Haritah is all about creating substantial results by procurement of eco-friendly and natural raw materials like bamboo and creating daily use articles from it. Our prime focus is to replace the usage of one-time use plastic in one of the biggest and most flourishing industries of our country, the food industry. At Enactus SAC, most of us hail from the urban setups of metropolitan states, mostly from Delhi. The food industry in India is gargantuan and also has a humongous turnover of plastic waste over time. These end up choking drains fed in by the stray animals or worse, burnt to poisonous and noxious fumes. This is something that needs to be dealt with which made us ideate amongst ourselves and take an initiative. We uphold the virtue of community outreach and with the propulsive force of making a difference to the society, we have successfully generated a source of stable income for 6 Chick makers and daily wage carpenters by ensuring them pivotal role in our manufacturing process. With the mission to keep a check on the use of single use plastic products, we targeted some of the most prominent food outlets in the city.

With an effort to inspire people to live a sustainable life, we targeted one of the leading industries of the world, the food industry, at the primary stage, we have introduced Bamboo spoons, Bamboo forks, Bamboo straws and cups made up of Bamboo. Seeing the outcome of our initiative, we wish to grow and diversify our outreach as we further progress with our project Haritah.

The product is conceptualised and manufactured by chick makers and carpenters all across Delhi NCR, who were taught how to make bamboo articles in the primary stage by the volunteers of Enactus SAC. Seeing their unfortunate living conditions and their exuberance to work, we took it upon ourselves to make them self-reliant and to uplift their lives. We have successfully sustained a chain of chick makers and carpenters working with us and have empowered them to work for the betterment of our country.

Project Haritah is a culminated product of intensive ideation to imply business tactics and substantial technological aid. The crucial step in our trajectory from the producer end to the consumer end is the marketing of the articles. We have employed the 4Ps of marketing that is, Price, Place, Promotion and Product. Unlike all the other options available in the market, our prices are low making it feasible for the people to include these in their everyday lives. Apart from its durability, comfort and looks, we managed to set a reasonable market price for our product. The cost of making a single Bamboo straw came upto ₹9 and was sold at ₹15 thereby making a substantial profit with every sale we made. Cost of our straws varied with change in the price of labour. 80% of these proceeds go to the Chick Makers and Carpenters and 20% of the proceeds are utilised for the functioning of our society. Cheaper and varied offering will help us capture a wider market in a short span of time. We ensured that no matter what the hurdles are, an outstanding quality of product is sold.

We concentrated and targeted some of the most prominent areas of the cities which have food outlets. Currently, we are just focusing on Delhi NCR but gradually as we progress with our Project Haritah, we aspire to target metropolitan states and the neighbouring states of Delhi.

Our bamboo products in itself are a work of art with fine quality of bamboo and rich texture. The fine detailing in our products makes it more appealing and adds its own uniqueness giving it a superior look.

The major area of concern for us was with the promotion of our products. We made sure our promotion was structured in the very line of instigating the essence of sustainability and eco-friendly products amongst our audience. Project Haritah has intricately utilised the expertise of the conventional chick makers. On the suburb areas of Delhi, one can easily come across many chick makers sitting in the stalls set up with beautiful bamboo made articles. The skills and resources in this sphere were something that was already available and persistent. We aimed at transferring the knowledge of the grim reality of plastic pollution to them and urged people to join and help us in this noble cause.

We were not only successful in promulgating the idea of project Haritah but with correct entrepreneurial actions intertwined with the passion to serve people, we impacted households through retail stores. Thus, the success of our project in due course of time can be gauged with the replacement of single use plastic in the targeted retail stores. We are also making an initiative to reach out to individual households and sell our bamboo articles to the common people through grocery stores and making them aware about the hazards of plastic and eco-friendly substitutes that they can use.

The maximum expenditure input required is in the form of purchasing raw material and the capital for preliminary processing. With the funds that we generated from the sale of our products, we plan on buying finer instruments required for preliminary processing. In the course of Project Haritah, the team has been involved extensively in various field visits ranging throughout the regions of Delhi NCR.

The anticipated positive impact of our project is the awareness among our target audience regarding the negative impact of single use plastic and the ardent need to switch to eco-friendly articles.

With utmost dedication and hard work of our team members, we have had several successful field visits under our Project Haritah, where we reached out to numerous restaurants and retail stores and delivered our reusable and eco-friendly Bamboo straws by inducing them to replace their products with better and more sustainable alternatives making it accessible to the general people who wish to make a change just like us.

We don’t have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in change. Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world and this is our way of transforming the world. We successfully targeted more than 12 restaurants and food outletsand more than 10 grocery stores and retails stores all across Delhi NCR impacting more than 5000 lives.

We got an overwhelming response from the stores and food outlets that we collaborated with as we got frequent reorders from them indicating that our mission to reduce plastic waste and substitute it with better and more sustainable options was a success. However, this wasn’t the only factor which indicated the triumph of our project Haritah. Seeing the empowerment and upliftment of our carpenters and chick makers and their passion to make a difference was the highlight of our project and our main driving force.

A minor change in our daily routine can bring about an everlasting change in our society and with Project Haritah, we wish to inculcate in people, a sense of responsibility. When we dream alone it is only a dream, but when many dream together it is the beginning of a new reality. Together we aspire to do a lot more. This year, we pledge to choose a cleaner, plastic-free environment.

Project Pratyahar

With this emerging world of digitalisation, paper is still considered one of the most convenient utility. Paper is still an important aspect of life. 40% of all traded industrial wood in the world is reserved for pulp and paper industries, which produce office paper, tissue, and paper-based packaging. Deforestation is detrimental to the ecosystem as loss of habitat can lead to flora and fauna extinction. While many industries have committed to reforestation projects, these artificial forests are often unsustainable and unable to support biodiversity. With the proper reduction of waste and recycling methods, the economic and environmental benefits are tremendous. However, whether you are at home, in an office, or a big industry, paper waste is something that should not be taken for granted. It’s time paper-dependent companies should try to sort waste correctly or risk the cost of inefficient management and utilization of paper.

NAPKINS cost the planet a great deal. The vast majority of the napkins found in our homes, restaurants, etcetera are made from wood pulp, the use of which drives the degradation of forests around the world. Fortunately, after thorough research we found a solution to this issue. Instead of relying on virgin pulp we can use recycled content or sustainably sourced alternate fibers.

Enactus SAC have embarked on a journey to curb this situation with our ‘Project Partyhar’. Our project is entitled as PRATYAHAR which is an initiative inclined towards replacing the virgin pulp napkins with BAGASSE napkins. Bagasse is a plant fiber. More specifically, it is the fibrous matter that is left over after the production of sugarcane, sorghum or agave. So in a word, it is bio-waste. Historically, bagasse was treated as unusable and disposed of - thrown away, burned or left in open piles to rot. It was not seen as a useful by-product. Fortunately, things have changed and bagasse is being seen as a valuable, renewable resource by our team. Not only are Bagasse napkins sustainable but also use raw material as a component which was earlier considered waste and was discarded.

Our project is entitled as PRATYAHAR which is an initiative inclined towards replacing the virgin pulp napkins with BAGASSE napkins. Bagasse is the dry fibrous material that remains after crushing sugarcane to extract their juice which is ideal to be used as a raw material in the paper industry. Using Bagasse as an alternative will not only help in reduction of deforestation, but recycling it will also help in reduction of wastes that contaminates the environment and it will be a step closer in the making of a better tomorrow.

After all the research and ideation process, we started to look for the main raw material (bagasse) to make napkins. In the first week of July, we conducted many surveys to know the quantity of bagasse we can acquire from Delhi and Delhi NCR region. We looked out for food outlets, sugarcane juice vendors, etc. and talked to them about being our suppliers. All of them were more than happy to supply their by-product to us as we were offering them an additional source of income.

Our product is conceptualized and manufactured by women who lost their jobs due to the pandemic or are victims of abuse and gender inequality. We are working towards Collaborating with several NGOs like GURIA INDIA, ACTION AID INDIA, etc. that will help us to find the data base of these underprivileged women. We also have a mission to make this community -THE ENTREPRENEURS where they can work without any dependency on anyone by connecting them to the restaurants and food outlets to whom they can sell the bagasse tissues manufactured by themselves. We our also conducting regular market surveys which is helping us to know more about the market base for our bagasse tissues.

We started the manufacturing of bagasse Napkins in the last week of July whereby our initial capital was taken out from our Enactus funds. By July 2022 at least 20 underprivileged women will be provided employment under this project along with forming a community of approximately 30 sugarcane juice vendors. In the long run, this project will not only guide people to understand the importance of using eco-friendly products but will also help other women to stand up for themselves and for their rights in the society.
