Attn. Bangalore trekkers! We're having a waste collection drive + a thrift store in our Bengaluru office

Here’s an exciting update for Bengaluru trekkers. We are having a thrift store and a waste collection drive in our office on Friday, Sept 15th. If you have been waiting to declutter your home, this is a wonderful opportunity.

The thought behind it is simple -- to use resources carefully and not wastefully by giving away things we are no longer using, or by recycling them responsibly. It is an extension of our Green Trails practice, which trekkers are familiar with in the mountains.

To do this drive, we are collaborating with Wasted 360 Solutions—a creative waste management initiative. “It’s been more than a month since we tied up with Wasted 360 Solutions to manage our waste responsibly. They happily agreed to collaborate on hosting a thrift store with us to spread awareness about sustainable living,” shares Sharwari Brahme, who is leading the Green Trails Initiative at Indiahikes.

This thrift store is open to everyone. If you are in Bengaluru, you're welcome to bring in your clothes, decor, and home appliances that you don't need. If you have any e-waste or clean recyclable waste, we will have a drop-off point for all waste as well.

The event is happening at the Indiahikes office in Sahakarnagar, on Friday (September 15th). It will be open from 10 a.m. until 6.30 p.m. You're welcome to use this opportunity to drop by our office and meet the Indiahikes team as well!
