MANI VAJIPEY

CO-FOUNDER AND CEO, BANYAN NATION

Mani is a recycler and is the Co-Founder and CEO of Banyan Nation, a technology driven recycling company that is changing the way India looks at plastics, recycling and waste management. During his travels across India, the filth and squalor deeply disturbed him and motivated him to build an organization that would solve India’s waste management challenges through technology and business innovations. Mani believes that we have a moral imperative to recycle. If we are to build sustainable and livable cities for our future generations, recycling activities cannot be left to the mercy of unregulated market forces and informal sector industries. Banyan recycles discarded plastic into #BetterPlastic in a socially responsible and environmentally friendly way. You can help bring change and make India more sustainable by asking your favorite brands on Twitter or Facebook to use #BetterPlastic for their product and packaging needs.
