The first ever toothbrush you used, can still be found somewhere lying around in a landfill, if not the ocean. Just the mere thought of every plastic waste we ever generated still existing is a chilling one. The need for us to comprehensively switch from plastic to greener alternatives is a dire one.

In the first episode of season 2 of ‘Not Made of Plastic’, we take a look at Amwoodo Eco Products, founded by Agni Mitra. The company’s mission is to replace everyday plastic items with sustainable and affordable eco-friendly alternatives. Despite being the second largest producer of bamboo, India still prices everyday bamboo products higher than the UK and the US. Amwoodo is working to change that by utilizing the power of scaling to manufacture affordable bamboo products and make a difference in the fight against plastic pollution. From bamboo toothbrushes and utensils to reusable jars, Amwoodo’s products are accessible to everyone. Join us as we explore the world of sustainable living and learn how small changes can have a big impact on the planet.
