Patanjali

our verdict

It is truly shocking that a giant company based primarily on principles of wellness has little or no policy for environment, recycling, ingredient transparency and animal testing. Users should be wary of companies that simply build themselves green for branding purposes.

Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is a policy approach under which producers are given a significant responsibility for the treatment or disposal of post-consumer products. This is to prevent wastes at the source, promote product design for the environment and support the achievement of public recycling and materials management goals.
A notice posted on the website of the Cental Pollution Control Board, a Ministry body in India, said that 52 companies including Patanjali hadn’t yet registered at the online portal and disclosed their disposal plans.
