In 2017, we travelled to India to visit small-scale artisans in Kolkata, India. We realised that millions of artisan workers within the textile industry, leather tanning and manufacturing of ornaments had no facilities to treat their polluted water.
They do not have the space, money or energy to install high-tech water treatment systems. Poor water hygiene has a huge detrimental effect on the artisan communities health and living standards.
Along the way, we’ve also discovered that companies also want to work with Indus to improve their manufacturing processes, transitioning into a circular economy.
By Saving Water, we save Lives.
Our mission is to help communities, companies and governments across the world to improve their water treatment infrastructure.
Indus was designed
to help artisan communities like…
to treat and reuse the wastewater by themselves.
THE NAME - INDUS
Indus is one of the longest rivers in Asia. Originating in the Tibetan plateau, historically, the river acted as a node for the Indus Valley Civilisation.
The versatile trajectory, history and the various roles Indus has played over the centuries is representative of the changes we all need to make globally, in order to preserve the most precious resource of life - Water.
