What makes this juice shop even more distinct is the initiative that the shop is carrying forward. It is being run by Anand Raaj, who quit his flourishing 12-year-old career in radio and decided to take over the reins of his family juice shop.
What’s different here: The juice corner runs on a motto of zero waste. The shop has absolutely no usage of plastic, moreover it manages it wet waste by making bio-enzymes. For all those who don’t know what it is - Bio-Enzyme is a multi-purpose, natural cleaner that is made using vegetable or fruit peels (usually citrus) or kitchen waste. It is absolutely an eco-friendly way to ditch the harsh chemicals that one uses to wash bathrooms, toilets, floors, tiles and other surfaces. Today, the shop makes almost 100 litres of bio-enzyme per month and sells it for Rs 100 a litre in re-purposed beer bottles.
That’s not all! This juice corner is also giving people a lesson on proper waste management and segregation of garbage in wet and dry form.
Zero-waste initiative aside! One can get here fresh fruit juices along with mom-made special items which keep on varying - sometimes the shop sells gun powder masala and sometimes home-made chocolates.
Pro Tip: For all those visiting the juice corner, if you want takeaways - then don’t forget to bring your own cutlery as the shop doesn’t give anything in disposable or plastic items.
