Sonal has been a Menstrual Health and Hygiene facilitator since 2013, and has facilitated teams for World Merit UK in the space of environment sustainability and education.

Amita Deshpande, the founder of "ReCharkha - The EcoSocial Tribe", has worked extensively in Sustainable Development and Corporate Social Responsibility for the past 14 years. An IT Engineer by education, she went on to do her Masters at Purdue University, USA with a focus on Sustainability. She has worked with CSR teams of numerous MNCs, consultancies and non-profits and eventually founded Aarohana EcoSocial Developments. After leading Aarohana for 7 years, she founded ReCharkha EcoSocial to continue the same work of upcycling Waste Plastic.
Leesha Agarwal graduated from NIFT Mumbai in 2018 and started Adah, a zero waste handloom brand. While at fashion school, Leesha spent much of her time interning or working with various MNCs. What struck her most from this experience was the amount of scrap fabric and waste that went into landfills every day. She also noticed that workers were underpaid and often worked excruciatingly long hours. While these companies drew in massive profits, their own staff did not benefit nor were the customers aware of where their clothes came from.Leesha decided to do it differently, and the brand-Adah was born. Adah sources ethically, uses resources consciously and cares for the people and the planet.
