Innovative solutions towards zero-waste homes and businesses

 
 

About Us

A company dedicated to Circular Economic solutions to business problems.

Circular economy is a relatively new concept for Sri Lanka. It essentially means that material used in products and packaging is used to its fullest and kept in circulation between the company and the consumer as long as possible before it is discarded to the environment.


The company vision is 'To make every home and business in Sri Lanka Zero waste', and our aim is to make every company that works with us, aligned with the same when offering their products and services to consumers.

Chakra Suthra is driven by a team of domain experts in technology, engineering, biology, chemistry and circular economy with open-innovation links locally and internationally.
