Giving new life to waste by upcycling and market creation

The enterprise manufactures products from waste or organic materials, and it also offers an on- and offline marketing and sales platform for its own products and the products of other environmentally conscious producers.
Online, GTM runs its own e-commerce store and sells on other e-commerce portals. Offline, sales occur in GTM’s own store as well as in other retail stores throughout India.
