#PlasticFreePondy: This cafe lets you take away drinks in glass bottles

We buy a million plastic bottles per minute!

In the last 10 years alone, the world has produced more plastic than the entire last century.  While policy changes and putting pressure on local government is necessary for widespread change, it is the small actions of refusing or reusing plastic every day that make a big impact.

This week, PondyLive plans to highlight individuals , non-profits and businesses who are beating plastic pollution in their own ways, big and small.  Don’t forget to share your story with us below in the comment section or on facebook or instagram with #PlasticFreePondy


We introduced glass bottles for customers who want to take-away our smoothies . We were keen to avoid serving drinks in plastic-take away containers. We also got rid of plastic bags and instead use non-woven fabric bags.

With the introduction of reusable steel straws in the near future, Smoothie Bar outlets will be totally plastic free.

– Krishna Prathab, Managing Director, Smoothie Bar (Pondicherry/ Auroville/ Chennai )
