India is a treasure trove of incredible talent in the form of craftsmen and artisans, who are yet to be recognized and given their dues. In keeping with the vision of ‘Make In India’, Pepperfry has stepped in to sell thousands of products from MSMEs based out of multiple states across our Furniture & Home categories.
Since 2013, Pepperfry has created an ecosystem in Rajasthan empowering artisans and craftsmen from small towns and villages including Churu, Sardarshahar, Ratangarh, Taranagar to set up successful businesses, thus generating employment and revenue for more than 30,000 families directly and indirectly.
We plan to partner with industry associations and government bodies to create 3-4 furniture hubs by 2025, to specifically promote local furniture and home businesses, and in turn, livelihood for gifted artisans across the country.
At Pepperfry, we have always kept sustainability at the forefront, focusing on contributing towards positively impacting not only the environment through various ongoing initiatives but also empowering the community—both within our workforce as well as at large.
. Following the universal mantra of Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle, we have incorporated innovative ways to reduce plastic packaging
We believe in being transformative leaders. We innovate to create a better tomorrow for all. This brings us to a global issue that affects all of us—managing plastic waste.
Following the universal mantra of Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle, we have incorporated innovative ways to reduce plastic packaging like the use of furniture blankets during reverse pickup, elimination of thermocol packaging, bringing back packaging from the customers to recycle and reuse, and encouraging our merchants to switch to multi-usage 50+ micron packaging material. By 2025, Pepperfry aims to eliminate single-use plastic packaging by PepCart and our merchants.
