“Chai Point follows a Clean Earth practice and gives back to the community, not just today but every day. Caring for our community and giving back is a small way to show our gratitude,” says Diksha Pande, VP Customer Experience and People Excellence at Chai Point.

With greenery taking a backseat and pollution rising to an all-time high, the company is dedicated to try and help make the city a greener and cleaner place to live in. Mr. Chandrappa lauded the efforts of Chai Point and said, “Few companies take on initiatives like this to protect the environment. Keep it up Chai Point!”
