Our guest today is one of the co-founders of Blue Phin, a smart robot that can collect aquatic waste on the surface of commercial water bodies. Crazy birds, without any further ado, I would like to welcome, Simran Chowdhry.

Key Take Away

“If we do not do something about this, then who will?”

We all play a role in keeping this planet healthy, whether it is by reducing the amount of waste and harm you cause as an individual or as a large group or company. The one thing that we can not do is to do nothing and then say what difference does one person make.
