LET'S RE-CREATE OUR WORLD
In a sector that is traditionally dominated by waste paper collectors located at nook and corners, Pastiwala lets you breathe in the fresh air. And yes, quite literally so! Pastiwala is the first ever organized waste paper collector in India. A CRISIL recognized and rated organization, it is located in the city of Vadodara in Gujarat. It is under the thought provoking leadership of Mr. Paresh Parekh that this inspiring project took off in the year 2010.
Over the past 3 years many people have opted for the Pastiwala way of waste paper disposal. Slowly directing the waste paper generated in the country towards the recycle process. In this way, contributing to handover a sustainable earth to the future generations.
The Pastiwala team comprises of contributors who share the company ideology, and work towards it. There are 25 three wheelers, 10 four wheelers Tata Ace, 20 big trucks (as part of Sort India Transport) that support the tasks.
Paper - Trees - Ecological balance. That is the route we've taken.
We take doable steps, by collecting paper from both industries and households, recycling it and bringing it back into use. Instead of cutting more trees for paper, why not help conserve the greens?
We believe, together we can reconstruct our earth. The first step in asserting this belief is by contributing waste paper for recycle. You can participate and contribute with just a phone call, message or email! Waste paper at work or home, we're a stone's throw away!
Here is the chance. Collect and recycle waste paper to save cutting down of trees. We're on this for over three years now. And in this span, look what has grown - For every 20,000 metric tonnes, 3,40,000 trees are saved. In the last 3 years, 10,20,000 trees were saved under this initiative.
And while doing this, he has made an impact not only on the environment, but also on the social and economic system.
Pastiwala utilises technology in the form of electronic weighing scale, GPS and Driver Tracking Devices, Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Systems, Google Maps - Earth and other hand held devices for waste paper collection.
The integration of technology in collecting waste paper has helped tremendously in streamlining this process. Also, first time steps like making calls for paper collection, collating user data, information on location of Pastiwala tempo add immense value to this organized collection system.
In Gujarat, a waste paper collector is addressed as Pastiwala.

We believe that we are responsible for the people who take part in the production and support of our products and services. We believe that people whose work contributes to our success should not be deprived of their basic human rights, nor be forced to suffer physically or mentally from their work in any way.
Sort India expects employers to respect fundamental human rights, to treat their workforce fairly and with respect. In order to make our position clear to our own staff, our suppliers and any other affected parties; we have documented a Code of Conduct.
This directive is applicable to all Sort India operations as well as Sort India's suppliers, contractors and customers.
This is an open document and shall be displayed in such a way that anyone whose work contributes to our products and services is aware of the principles of the Code of Conduct. It is the responsibility of suppliers and customers to ensure that their employees and subcontractors are informed about and comply with this Code. Sort India is prepared to clarify the content and associated requirements of this document upon request.
All of our suppliers and customers must, in all activities, obey national and regional statutory requirements in the countries in which they are operating. Should any of the requirements stated in this document be in violation of the law in any country or territory, the local law should always take precedence. In such case, a supplier, customer must immediately inform Sort India. It is, however, important to understand that Sort India requirements are not limited to the requirements of national laws.
Anyone who works directly or indirectly for Sort India should be entitled to his or her basic human rights. Sort India does not accept the use of bonded workers, forced labour, prisoners or illegal workers. If foreign workers are employed on a contract basis, they should never be required to remain in employment against their will. The employer covers all commissions and the recruitment agency fees. We do not accept that workers are subject to corporal punishment, mental or physical disciplinary action, or harassment. Dismissal of female workers due to pregnancy is not acceptable. We recommend that all workers are free to peacefully and lawfully join associations of their own choice, and have the right to bargain collectively. No worker should be discriminated against because of age, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, marital or maternity status, political opinion or ethnic background. We recommend that all workers with the same experience and qualifications receive equal pay for equal work.
All workers should know the basic terms and conditions of their employment. Legislated minimum wages should be a minimum, rather than a recommended level. Wages should be paid regularly and on time. Workers should be granted stipulated annual leave; sick leave and maternity leave without any form of repercussions.
Sort India requires that worker safety is always a priority concern. Buildings must have clearly marked exits and emergency exits on all floors. We recommend that all exit doors should open outwards.

An evacuation plan should be displayed on every floor of a building and the fire alarm should be tested regularly. Regular evacuation drills are recommended.
First aid equipment must be available in a building and at least one person in each department should be trained in basic first aid. It is recommended that a doctor or nurse is available on short notice in the event of an accident on the premises.
It is important for all workers' well being, that equipments, vehicles and machineries are handled in a safe and correct way. All machineries, equipments and vehicles shall be marked and labelled in a correct way.

A child in this context is a person younger than 15 years of age, or 14 years of age in accordance with the exceptions for developing countries as set out in Article 2.4 in the ILO Convention No.138 on Minimum Age.
Sort India bases its child labour code on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, article 32.1. We recognize the right of the child to be protected from economic exploitation and from performing any work that is likely to be hazardous or to interfere with the child's education, or to be harmful to the child's health or physical, mental, spiritual, moral or social development.
Sort India does not accept child labour. We acknowledge that it exists and realise that it cannot be eradicated by simply setting up rules or inspections, but by actively contributing to the improvement of children's social situations. Thus, we endeavour to improve the situation for any child affected by our ban on child labour. Sort India will request that the employer acts in accordance with the overall best interests of the child. A satisfactory solution is whatever improves an individual child's overall situation. The employer should cover the costs for this.
Sort India will discontinue cooperation with any party that persists in non-compliance with our child labour code.
Sort India accepts apprenticeship programmes for children between the ages of 12 and 15 years in countries where the law permits such programs, but only under certain conditions. The total number of hours spent on light work and school together, should never exceed seven hours per day. The employer must be able to prove that work is not interfering with the child's education; that apprenticeship is limited to a few hours per day; that the work is light and clearly aimed at training and that the child is properly compensated. We will not accept apprenticeship programmes that do not comply with these terms.
Sort India acknowledges that according to Article 1 of the UN Convention on Rights of the Child, a person is a child until the age of 18. We therefore recommend that children in the age group 15-18 years be treated accordingly, i.e. by limiting the total number of working hours per day and implementing appropriate rules for overtime. Children in this age group are not allowed to perform hazardous work.
Sort India expects all its workers, suppliers, customers and their subcontractors to respect this Code of Conduct and to actively do their utmost to achieve its standards. We are prepared to cooperate with our suppliers, customers to achieve adequate solutions. We are also prepared to take cultural differences and other relevant factors into consideration, but we will not compromise on the fundamental requirements described in this document.
All suppliers, customers are obliged to keep Sort India informed about where each order is produced or supplies from us are being reprocessed. Sort India reserves the right to make unannounced visits to sites where people work directly or indirectly for Sort India. We also reserve the right to let an independent party make inspection.
In the event of Sort India or its trading partner becoming aware of a supplier not following our ethical code of conduct, Sort India reserves the right to terminate any agreed contract or withdraw from trading with this particular supplier, customer forthwith.
