Our Journey Towards a Sustainable Future

Posted by Shrimayee Dutta on

Rangsutra Crafts is taking steps to reduce its environmental impact. The company has a number of initiatives in place, including using more sustainable materials, installing solar panels, and recycling water.

The company's recent impact assessment found that the biggest source of its emissions are its raw materials. To address this, Rangsutra Crafts is working to use more sustainable cotton and recycled yarn.
