Sustaining life

Approximately 2.4 billion people rely on the Himalayan rivers


Around the world, global warming and pollution are beginning to cause problems.

The source of Asia’s biggest rivers – the Ganges, Indus, Brahmaputra, Yangtze, Mekong, Salween and Yellow – the Himalayan glaciers, could disappear by 2035 as temperatures soar.

If global warming is not controlled, approximately 2.4 billion lives in India, China, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Myanmar could experience disastrous floods, followed by long spells of crippling droughts in the coming decades.*

Similarly, polluted water flowing from land to sea is causing the destruction of coral reefs which disrupts the fragile ocean ecosystem. As all life on earth are intertwined, this will further effect the world ecosystem as a whole.

In a positive move towards a greener and better world with sustainable resources, Eco Palm utilizes innovative and efficient manufacturing technologies that uses less chlorine and produces less chemical wastes on our V brand products.
