THIS eco-green startup in Jaipur converts cow-dung into 70 different paper products!

The company manufactures paper bags, bangle boxes, office cases, gifting envelopes, wedding cards and much more.

Expanding the definition and scope of 'green products', a Jaipur-based organisation called 'Gaukriti' transforms cow dung into a variety of exciting products. Starting out in 2017, Bheemraj Sharma, the owner of Gaukriti has been successful in delivering a new range of commodities like idols, rakhis, 70 different paper products and much more. Interestingly, the individual has also acquired a patent for his creative crafts and methods, which never fail to amaze consumers!

An eco-friendly paper manufactured with cow dung, seeds & other things!

The idea of this venture cropped up in the mind of Sharma when he observed large amounts of paper wastage. In view of this, a multitude of questions stormed his thoughts and he started this organisation to conserve the environmental resources. Given a large count of trees are cut for the production of paper, this initiative was aimed at preserving the green components of our surroundings.

Now, Gaukriti manufactures paper from cow dung, urine, cotton waste and seeds. Due to the presence of seeds, a discarded paper further contributes to the ecosystem.

Evolution of paper to revolutionary paper!

Since most trees are harvested to make paper, the team of 'Gaukriti' came up with the revolutionary idea of inventing paper from cow dung and urine in a bid to save the environment. Not only does the company produce paper but all sorts of paper products like bags, bangle boxes, office cases, gifting envelopes, wedding cards and other things are also developed here. Manufactured with the use of vegetable seeds of tulsi, cumin and other herbs, the paper is recyclable.

Given the deteriorating environmental conditions and the adverse effects of uncontrolled human activities, an initiative like this is indeed a blessing. It is noteworthy that projects like these create a balance between the endowments of nature and the needs and requirements of the human race.
