How this Social Entrepreneur is Pioneering a Green Revolution

How many times have you stopped at the traffic signal, stared at the garbage dump in an open field and wondered about the problems it creates. But then, the signal turns green and you are off on your way, dumping the worries too at the site. Social Entrepreneur Raaginii Jaain wasn’t one of those to sit back down.

Founder of Geetanjali Envirotech, Raaginii Jaain was disturbed by the amount of waste generated in India and its poor management. In the late 90s’, Jaain started working in the area of waste management. In 1998, she met Almitra H. Patel, an Indian environmental policy advocate and anti-pollution activist, and it was then that her journey actually started. She is the first and still the only woman in India to bio-remediate dumpsites and who is able to clear these dumpsites.
