Buy Rice Back was founded with a social and environmental mission
Increase access to education for children from begging communities in India
Reduce the number of used rice sacks going to landfill
Reduce dependency on plastic bags
100% of the profits we make from the sales of our products go to further our mission.
We partner with the charity My Name is Kumar. MNIK work with children and families from rural begging communities to break the cycle of poverty. They increase access to education for children who would otherwise be begging on the streets, as well as offering opportunities to families to find alternative income and reduce their dependency on begging and the harms associated with it.
