ARISE is an initiative to promote ecological sustainability
ARISE is an initiative to promote ecological sustainability by producing and promoting eco-friendly solutions, such as cloth bags which are made by interested individuals who are economically and socially backwards seeking self-employment.
With this vision, ARISE initiatives produce cloth bags by giving incentives to women from economically weaker sections of the society. RUF distributes these bags across Kerala at social and cultural events as well as to merchants.
