Using a quirky analogy, Gautam Mallik explicates and formulates an innovative process towards creating a sustainable future. Later, he expounds upon the little crafty, innovative devices the average person can do to make a difference. With a drive to inspire environmental and societal change, Gautam Mallik leads his organisation Jaggery Bags. Reusing waste materials to form soulful products is their speciality, especially as the world moves to enjoy numerous aspects of life while minimising carbon footprint. His organisation states, «We are Quirky. We are Purposeful. We are Soulful. We are Jaggery.» This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
