About No Nasties
30 minutes
That's the rate at which farmers are committing suicide in India. 250,000 suicides in 15 years. One every half an hour!

60 million
That's the number of child labourers in India. 60 million children!

55%
That's the percentage of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers used on cotton in India, even though it only takes up 5% of farm land!

These numbers were too disturbing for us to ignore. We decided to do something about it.

We looked at the current initiatives by the government and non-government organizations in India and were glad to see a growing movement to switch to organic and fair trade practices. No genetically modified seeds, no synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, no carcinogens, no high interest loans, no child labour, no price exploitation, no suicides!

Most of this work, however, was being done at the grassroots level and there was not enough support for it from the end consumers. We think that is due to a lack of awareness as well as a lack of choice for the consumers.

We don't believe that anyone who is truly aware of what is going on would turn their heads and support this unsustainable, slave trade economy, if they had a viable alternative. An alternative that doesn't ask the consumers to change their lifestyle, but meets them where they're at and matches their fashion and design sensibilities.

Introducing No Nasties: 100% organic & fair trade clothing that is ethically and sustainably made from seed to garment.
 

The People behind No Nasties
No Nasties was started by Apurva and Diti - two bicycle riding, frisbee tossing, yoga posing, organic farming, city dwelling, Auroville dreaming, Mumbai residents, who (try to) do no nasty! Diti has now moved on to greener pastures and Apurva is steering the ship, holding down the fort, keeping a hose on the fire, and kickin it up a notch!
Apu
Apurva Kothari
Apurva did technology.
Apurva did web.
Apurva did lasers.
Apurva did micro-chips.
Apurva no happy.

So Apurva started No Nasties.
And life is good again.
