Artville is the first Green Business in Mysore, India ,seeking to address unemployment amongst indigenous producers coupled with solving degradation of the environment as a result of business activities. It advocates sustainable capitalism and endorses authentically handcrafted, and naturally sourced organic products from local producer communities and women from the urban and rural poor, thus generating employment and financial literacy across the value chain. Thus Artville aims to create social inclusion and develop hand-made products and packaging that cause no harm to the environment. Artville identifies itself as a social movement first and then a business, and is on a mission to plant one tree for every product sold.
