Hi. My name is Anuja Sawant (Sarangdhar). I’m an Environment & Sustainability professional.
Did you know that our very survival hinges upon the air, food, and water that the planet’s biodiversity provides?
Air pollution causes 1 in 8 deaths worldwide. Environmental crime is the world’s fourth-largest criminal enterprise, after drug smuggling, counterfeiting and human trafficking. A mountain is not just a large natural elevation of the earth’s surface rising abruptly from the surrounding level; but also a giant heap of garbage. But it does not have to be so. All is not lost.
To fix that and many other issues related to environment and sustainability, I’ve studied Green Technology and Chemical Engineering.
I started this blog in 2012 as a personal log of what I learnt during my Masters in Green Technology at the Institute of Chemical Technology (formerly UDCT), Mumbai. Since then, my blog has grown to a community of an average of 1000 visitors every month and my new project – Saturday Newsletter is catching up.
I have served as Sustainability Developer at IKEA and worked with a consulting company Prasad Modak & Associates (PMA). I regularly collaborate with several not-for-profits in the field of environment, sustainability, and human rights. I hold an MTech in Green Technology and BE in Chemical Engineering. I’m originally from India and grew up in Mumbai as a kid. Living and working in the USA and now Canada has allowed me to see things in a new light – how people in different parts of the world see environmental and social issues and how they respond to it. Over the past years, I have developed expertise in following areas:
+ Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
+ Stakeholder Engagement
+ Volunteer Management
+ Environmental Management
+ Environmental Compliance
+ Waste Management & Recycling
+ Metrics & Reporting
+ Data Collection, Analysis, Visualization
+ Technical Writing & Research
+ Education and Capacity Building
+ Communications & Social Media
Want to be a part of the solution? Here are some ways to collaborate on.
If you’d like to get to know the amateur artist in me, I keep a portfolio on Behance.

I’d love to get to know you too and I look forward to hearing from you.
