our mission? make recycling a
way of life for a billion people

‘Karo Sambhav’ is a hindi term which translates to ‘make it possible’.

Never has our planet, and we as a people, stood before the scale of man-made challenges that we do today. Real change is needed- from all of us in this ‘decade of action’. And such change is unlikely to occur without collective push and action.

Karo Sambhav is a cohesive movement for enterprises, consumers, governments and alliances to collaborate and enable circular economy.
