A Case Writing Competition

  • To bring attention to the very best ones

  • To showcase any and all innovations that generate plastic waste reduction results

  • To provide a list of high-impact solutions that other stakeholders in India (or globally), can replicate.


Each Case Study highlighted one project, program or technology solution. Each team used the same Case Study template that addressed the following:

  • The solution championed, its goals/objectives, data captured, and how well it was executed.

  • The solution’s background: how and when it was implemented, where it is implemented, origin/inspiration of the idea; how it helps solve the problem of plastic pollution/waste

  • What were the internal and external impacts of this solution on the organization itself, on the community; and other constituents?

  • What was the timeframe of the solution and what resources were brought together to make it happen and did the solution’s execution occur as forecast/planned, and what was learned.

  • What are the clear, tangible evidences about how this solution has benefitted the Business/Govt/Academic Institutions, as well as its impact on the surrounding environment and community?

  • How this solution is replicable and scalable by others in India. What improvements could be made to make the solution work even better and easier for other stakeholders to do.

  • What are the solution’s main challenges to overcome when implement? What are the sacrifices needed to be made in order to show results?
