A parting note

Living a sustainable life is not possible for everyone. From access issues to cultural conflicts, healthy sustainability is often imperfect sustainability. Organizations like this are important because they make sustainability accessible through the means of options.

Whether it be Muses_Saga helping make the publishing industry green or GiftGreen India proving a sustainable option for those who can’t thrift, sustainable organizations run by Indian women are showing that in India, organizations care about the planet.
