Temple Flower Waste Upcycling Company Phool.Co has announced that actor Alia Bhatt has joined the PHOOL family as an investor. Earlier, Phool.co had raised $2 million in a seed round from IAN Fund, Social Alpha (FISE), Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation (San Francisco), and IIT Kanpur.

Phool was born 2017 when Ankit Agarwal, an engineering graduate, set out on a mission to preserve the Ganges River by collecting the floral waste from temples and mosques that is dumped in the river and flower-cycling (upcycling) it into patented fertilizer and incense sticks, branded as Phool.

Phool incense stands out for its fine natural fragrances and amazing packaging. I admire the founder’s vision of making incense and bio-leather from recycled flowers that contribute to keeping our rivers clean, creating a humane alternative to leather and providing employment to women in India’s heartland. - Alia
The company has also developed ‘Fleather‘ leveraging their flower cycling technology. This is a viable alternative to animal leather which was recently awarded PETA’s best innovation in the Vegan World.

Earlier, the team had developed a 27% cheaper alternative to thermocol. It is high-performing, mouldable, durable and potentially the world’s first-ever biodegradable thermocol – Florafoam.
