Helping Individuals switch to Zero Waste : Sunita Gokhale

Women changing the face of Waste in Pune

Not generating trash is important, but one question that almost everyone has – Where are the alternatives?


Sunita Gokhale, the zero waste enterprenuer is doing just that. Sunita’s joy to enable Zero Waste is infectious. From composting to helping people walk the talk – she does all of that with a huge smile! Her store, very aptly named Earthing – has a treasure trove of replacements. From steel straws to cloth diapers to reusable sanitary pads to Bioenzymes – you name it. There’s a little something for everyone. Over 300+ brands find home in this cosy store at Kothrud.

Anytime you walk in, you will definitely have a delightful conversation with her on the many switches you can make. There’s something for everyone at this store. From subscription packs on zero waste essentials to composting workshops – Earthing anchors people from different walks of life to embark their zero-waste journey. You can connect with Sunita on 86001 00256 and visit her store here

I’ve been fortunate to be friends, colleagues with some of these inspiring women. There are many more women in waste – who have turned the situation around thanks to their kindred spirit. To them, and many others – thank you for keeping our planet cool, fun and healthy. Wishing everyone celebrating, a Happy Women’s Day!
