The ‘Eat Raja’ juice shop in Malleswaram, Bangalore is famous for its innovative, eco friendly and zero waste juices. Anand Raj, the owner of this 40-year-old shop, is an engineer by profession, but after the death of his father, he had to take responsibility.
In order to attract the fast dwindling customers and to save the environment, he chose fruits to serve the juice. After drinking the juice, the remaining shells of these fruits are put to the cow. With the ban on plastic waste, waste management has also become easier. Anand also gives a discount to the students for solving engineering questions.
That’s why the juice here is special
Eat Raja is a Zero Waste Juice Cafe in Malleswaram, Bangalore that works with women who love certain dishes, juices, and special double glasses. For example, here juice is served in a straw made of banana leaves in a glass with a fruit shell.
Anand Raj, a popular radio jockey in the city, left his twelve-year career to take over his father’s juice shop and give it an eco-friendly makeover. Using only locally procured fruits and vegetables, he ensured that the waste from the juice shop is used properly.
Anand divides his shop waste into wet and dry waste. Taking up social entrepreneurship, she also employs mothers in the Malleswaram area who can grow their business through their most popular dishes and earn income in return.
Make toilet cleaner from peels pulp
The local cafe serves South Indian style vegetarian food which costs between 20 to 100 rupees. By repurposing plastic bottles, the folks here encourage you to bring your own glass or bottle if you want to parcel something out to take back home.
To prevent plastic waste, Anand gives juice in watermelon, seasonal, guava, pineapple, banana and even tomato. At the same time, not a plastic straw for drinking, but a straw made of banana leaves is given to drink juice.
Not only this, Anand uses the remaining peels, fruit pulp and shells, making them bio-enzymes that can be used as toilet and surface cleaners.
Apart from this there is also a cutlery bank in It Raja. Here you can rent steel utensils from them at reasonable cost and return them after use, instead of using plastic plates and spoons.
