Jogiv Eco-Services Pvt Ltd is a for profit social enterprise based out of Bengaluru, India addressing the growing E-waste menace using innovative, out-of-the-box technological and sustainable solutions resulting in impact on environment and human health through social campaigns. We create campaigns & collect E-Waste and transport them to partnered ethical recyclers and stop the E-Waste from dumping it to landfills to reduce environmental hazards.
India is likely to generate E-Waste to an extent of 1.7 MT (million tonnes) in 2015 from 1.25 MT in 2014 with CAGR of about 25%. The major reasons for global E-Waste problem is driven by the rising sales and shortened life cycles of electrical and electronic equipment apart from consumers perception of attraction in the crowd and buying behaviors.
The happiness derived from the “Joy of Giving” to those around us is a kind gesture of compassion, care and support to the people and causes we care the most.
Community service is not new to Vinayak Sanjay Urs, Founder of Jogiv. He has been a part of E-Waste collection service for past five years. Serving at the Lions Club, he has gained vast experience of meeting community and environmental needs.
The first E-Waste collection service was launched on 28th Aug 2010 for the local community in and around Banashankari, Bangalore. Inspired from the discussions and feedback from the community on this initiative, he conceptualised Jogiv Eco-Services!
