Today leaders from 160 countries will officially sign the Paris Climate Agreement on Earth Day 2016.

The deal was thrashed out in Paris last December in order to stem global warming. 

The signing makes this year’s Earth Day one of the most important in years, and the organisers will be attempting to build on the momentum created by last year’s Paris Climate Summit. 

“Earth Day is the largest, most recognizable face of the environmental movement,” said Kathleen Rogers, president of the Earth Day Network. 

During the Paris talks world leaders agreed to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius, with developed countries providing $100 billion of public and private finance to help developing countries by 2020. 

The organizers behind Earth Day, which occurs annually on April 22, are hoping to use the 2016 celebration to plant 7.8 billion trees, divest from fossil fuels and make cities 100 per cent renewable. 

“Let’s take the momentum from here and build on it. Let’s start now. And let’s not stop.”

Activities associated with the day often include planting trees, raising awareness about recycling, volunteering for green projects, and reducing the amount of energy people consume. 

Earth Day is supported by a host of celebrities, including Oscar Winner Leonardo Di Caprio, Emma Watson, Miley Cyrus and Matt Damon. 

We are pleased to announce today, that Zenitex and its Social Responsibility / Community Welfare Initiative “Hearts@work” foundation has planned a Mega Tree Planting Event on 5th June 2016 in and around Surat. Whereby, 20,000 trees will be planted on 5th June 2016 itself and another 80,000 Trees will be planted upto 4th June 2017, thus, making a total of 100,000 trees in a year. We will be repeating this initiative for 3 consecutive years and have targeted to plant 300,000 trees in coming three years, just to start with.

We seek support from all the individuals, natives, communities, organizations and educational institutes to come forward and join us in this Green Drive and make it a success for us and our coming generations and most importantly for “Mother Nature”.

Lets’ not sit in the luxury of our homes and just discuss the issue. Lets’ wake up, lets’ get up and walk to make the difference.

Planting Trees is the best and the most easiest solution to control “Climate Change”, “Global Warming”, “Melting Oceans”, “Soil Erosion” and “Water Scarcity”.

BEWARE!!!! If we don’t; Then consequences are FRIGHTENING even just to think about it.

Contact us if you wish to plant a single tree or number of trees in your society campus, in your villa backyards, in your schools’ / colleges’ / universities’ playground and campuses, on your hospitals’ and clinics’ campuses, in fact, anywhere where you can plant a tree and take care of it. And we will provide you the same on 5th June ’16 and onwards. You can contact us by sending an email on and While sending your emails KINDLY mention in the subject line “WE ARE HEARTS@WORK – WE WISH TO GO GREEN – +91 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _”, also please mention your mobile number in the subject line as shown in the example. This will enable us notice the email immediately and take action and get in touch with you.

Just give it a second and visualize, if each individual plants one single tree every year, throughout India, we will have 1 Billion new trees every year. WOW! That’s sounds satisfying. Come Friends, Come Comrades, Come beloved Teachers and Professionals, WELCOME EVERYONE!

“The Earth” belongs to all of us – Nature we call it “Mother Nature” – Then Come, Lets’ take care of it responsibly”.

Meanwhile just implying any of the below suggestions to make a start today itself, a start to make the difference.

Keeping in mind the ‘World Forest Day & World Water Day’ A field trip was organized jointly by BY DR. S. & S. S. GHANDHY COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY, SURAT and ZENITEX, SURAT.

zenitex viral desai dr s. & s. s. ghandhy college world water day world forest day 47

This was a unique and first of its kind field visit in India. Wherein, a routine part of the syllabus field trip by college students was amalgamated with Environmental Protection and Energy Conservation initiatives. Zenitex was bustling with 26 young students from Dr. S. & S. S. Ghandhy College of Engineering and Technology. What was supposed to be a regular day, turned in to a delightful experience. 

Since, the trip was organized to coordinate with ‘World Water Day & World Forest Day’, gave us the impetus to add these students on the list of environmental protectionists and nature lovers. The whole activity was designed in such a way that firstly they were taken across the processing plant and along with it they were educated about various techniques implemented by Zenitex for ‘Water Conservation’ and ‘Energy Conservation’. For Water Conservation we have implemented ‘Rain Water Harvesting’; ‘Drip Irrigation’; ‘Water Scrubber’ and ‘ETP’, and various measures and innovations have been implemented to Conserve Energy, like reduction in Carbon Emission, Using recycled water for production, reduction in use of Electricity inside the plant and on campus in general, and tree plantations in support of Environmental Protection and a Greener Future.

To encourage the students, and make them a part of the ‘Go Green” world campaign. A Tree Plantation event was also executed at Zenitex campus.  More than 30 trees were planted, most of them being planted by the students themselves. This inculcated in them the need of Trees and brought them close to Nature and thus they pledged their support for the ‘Go Green’ world campaign and promised that they will themselves be actively involved in such activities and will also encourage their fellow students and friends to be a part of this Green Brigade which will help us ‘Save The Earth’.

We appreciate the devoutness of Dr. S. & S.S. Ghandhy College of Engineering & Technology, its administration and faculty for their genuinely imbibing the core values of education and its duties towards mankind and nature, which was reflected in the positive and optimistic approach of its students. And the interest shown by its management in joining hands with Zenitex & Hearts@work in their Social Responsibility / Community Welfare activities and Tree Plantation – Go Green initiatives and training of its students by signing an MoU, which in itself is an exceptional move. The MoU is expected to be signed by next week, details of which we will share with our readers shortly.

Moreover, it was a pleasure to host such enthusiastic and zealous students. They had questions and curiousness about most of the things on the campus. The students were accompanied by  Shri Rameshbhai G. Patel, H.O.D. Textile Processing Department along with Professor Shri Pavanbhai Panwala. To assist them around the campus, in to the processing unit and for tree plantation, Mr. Bhavik Naik, General Manager – Zenitex, Mr. Mohammed Nasir, PA to Mr. Viral Desai, CEO-Zenitex, Mr. K. C. Sahoo, Chief Engineer – Zenitex and other department heads were with them throughout their visit.

Finally the students met Mr. Viral Desai, CEO-Zenitex, who had a few words of inspiration and wisdom to charge the tempo of the bright students. Mr. Viral Desai, advised them to be humble and true to their duties and responsibilities and put their heart in to everything they do and success will surely follow. In the end he told them that “If you take care of Nature – Nature has its own unique way of giving back in abundance” and hence, appealed to them to take care of Nature and keep on growing more and more trees and to Save Water so that it lasts for us a little longer.

Women’s Day Message by Viral Desai, CEO – Zenitex

Ode to Women on Womens Day

International Women’s Day is celebrated the world over, every year on the 8th day of March. It celebrates womanhood and pays tribute to the indomitable spirit of women across the globe.

The 2016 theme for International Women’s Day is “Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality”. The United Nations is encouraging the world to envision a world where women and girls can have the freedom and ease of choice to participate in politics, get an education, have an income, and — an area I hold dear to my heart — live in a society free from violence and discrimination.

The tradition sees men honouring their mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues, etc with flowers and small gifts. In some countries it has the same status as of Mother’s Day where children give small presents to their mothers and grandmothers.

Investing in Women is Ensuring Prosperity :
When you empower a woman, you elevate her community. This is the core concept behind many of the public diplomacy efforts: a ripple effect occurs when we believe in women and invest in their potential. By providing women entrepreneurs access to training, mentors, and networks, we directly supports the goals of advancing women’s efforts to become financially independent through entrepreneurship and utilize their economic strength to improve their communities around the world.

Every day, we read about women and girls around the world who are victims of heinous violence. From Iraqi women abducted and enslaved by ISIS to Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped and forced into marriage to a Girl Students in India gang raped and tortured to death, these tragedies seem to belong to medieval times. We should remember that even they are somebody’s daughter, sister, wife or mother and it can be anybody.

I’d like to propose a different headline, a different narrative. While their work may not always make the front pages, women are confronting our most pressing global issues. At great personal risk, they are fighting poverty, discrimination, and violence so that their families, communities, and countries can have better lives.

As an entrepreneur I see the power of women every day in every place that I visit – they are creating opportunities for the next generations of women.

On Women’s day I pay my tributes to Women around the world and in India who work to advance peace, security, and gender equality. And their individual stories represent the positive impact that empowered women can make everywhere.

So, we will not retreat in the face of those who seek to diminish or banish women and girls to the margins of society. We do not accept rape as a by-product of conflict or indifferences. We will not accept the forced marriage of girls as a social norm. And we will not forget those who have been or are being held against their will. Instead, we honour them for the courage they show in the face of brutality and intimidation.

In February, World Bank had asked in a poll what do you wish for International Women’s Day? Answers were 42% want to see gender equality. 31% said they wanted women’s empowerment, and 27% wished for women’s human rights.

I think all three issues are critical — primarily because they can’t stand alone. A woman with rights is one who feels empowered to compete in an equal world.

As Gandhiji said : “Intellectually, mentally, and spiritually, a woman is equivalent to a man and she can participate in every activity”.

In Modern Indian society women are playing stellar roles. More importantly their role in family building, society development is stupendous. Indian woman is emerging out of their conventional role, realizing their unlimited potential and have begun to take major role in all walks of life. If India is to be a superpower, then surely we need a significant contribution from these great women.

I personally feel that a woman is intelligent, understanding, beautiful, gentle, motherly and powerful. What can be more powerful than Nature and hence, even Nature is lovingly addressed as Mother Nature. Because it is a Woman who brings life. She is the chosen one by the creator to bring life in to this world.

While concluding this message, I would like to share with you all, two small videos showing how much does a woman sacrifice and thus she truly deserves respect, it is in Hindi titled “Woman’s Respect”. And for our friends in the Middle-East, we have made a similar video with the title in Arabic meaning “Girl is Happiness” in Arabic.

We are pleased and happy to announce that Zenitex and its implementation of 360 degree Sustainability makes it to Fibre2fashion Magazine’s online feature. We thank Fibre2fashion team lead by Mr. Savan Gajjar and Mr. Jigar Shelat for supporting, acknowledging and publishing our ideas and our philosophy in their well-known magazine. (Please Visit sustainability)

We at Zenitex feel extremely honoured to be featured in the prestigious “Enhanced Sustainability–A Leap Forward” segment (visit http://www.Fibre2Fashion-Enhanced-Sustainability_Compedium), with global giants like Novozymes, Reliance, Aditya Birla Group, Indofil, Coats, Birla Cellulose, GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) to name a few in the world’s largest B2B textile portal Fibre2fashion. Global Warming and Climate Change has alarmed everyone. Concerned topmost Global Companies are implementing the sustainability module to reduce the impact. It is a unique platform to encourage and inspire the initiatives of sustainability by featured companies.

Zenitex takes inspiration from the support received from media in highlighting our way of working and intends to do more and more better.

Before a couple of days the world celebrated Oscars 2016 wherein, we would like to point out the achievement of Mr. Leonardo DiCaprio who won the Best Actor Award. It shows great passion and love for a thing which one remembers in his time of Glory. Like Leo remembered our Planet, ‘The Earth’ in his thanksgiving speech. He was right to point out that “Climate change is real. It is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species.” And the lines with which he ended with is a wakeup call for all of us, in which he said “Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted.”

We at Zenitex are always aligned with those celebrities and non-celebrities too who work for the nature and who pursue the goal of a greener world for our future generations.

For Zenitex Energy Conservation and Environmental Protection is a vital spoke in the 3 spoked wheel of 360 degree sustainability, the other two being ‘employee welfare and safety’ and ‘social responsibilities / community services’.

Zenitex works for Trees and persuades each and all to Go Green in whatever limited way one can. Small changes do make big differences, small steps do cover long distances and like from ‘a tiny acorn do mighty oaks grow’! We consider ourselves as the tiny acorn when it comes to going Green, which has been sowed in our philosophy and our actions and with the passionate and fervent nurturing by our CEO Mr. Viral Desai we envision to become the mighty oak which will spread in all the directions and with it the greenery.

Thanks & Regards – Team ZENITEX

viral desai says zenitex in harmony with universe

The universe is a marvellous creation. There is a certain order and harmony about it. It reminds us of an orchestra playing a harmonious melody. This orchestra of the universe has sentient and insentient objects as performers playing their unique instruments. God is the master conductor of this orchestra directing all performers to remain in tune and rhythm with the harmony of the universe.

Besides the elements of nature such as sun, moon, stars, air, fire, water, earth, trees, and sentient beings such as animals, birds and insects, humans are also one performers in the orchestra of the universe, special as the human being has been endowed with free will to play his instrument as he wishes.

Freedom can be a great blessing if employed with discretion but it can also prove to be a curse if abused. Therefore there is the need to instruct or guide the individual to remain in concord with the prevailing harmony.

Krishna says in the Bhagwad Gita that the universe is sustained by yajna. Any selfless action or action imbued with the spirit of reaching out is what is meant by the word yajna. Krishna says it is this spirit of offering or yajna which harmoniously moves the cosmic wheel. The sun offers itself to form clouds, clouds offer themselves to form rain, rains offer themselves to grow food. In this manner, all members of the universe offer themselves at the altar of the macrocosm and thereby help move the cosmic wheel.

The human being is also a cog in the wheel and therefore, he is expected to do his part. He is indebted to each and every member of the universe such as elements, trees, animals, sages, parents, teachers, ancestors, and scientists for what he is today. Krishna says that one who enjoys favours from the universe but does not return those favours, is a thief. By adopting selfish and violent attitude he may profit externally but by rubbing against the order of the universe he winds up with conflicts and turmoil within.

It is therefore becoming for us to return the favour with a sense of gratitude. Everybody is assigned a certain role in life. May that role be performed to the best of one’s ability, not only for a personal gain but for the well-being of the macrocosm. All duties and actions that one has to perform may be looked upon as an opportunity to serve the universe. Thus, when the spirit of offering, of contributing, permeates the life of the individual, he has struck the fine chord of harmony playing in the universe.

The result is that he is at peace with himself. The spirit of offering, the attitude of serving or reaching out is such a catalyst that it purifies his heart of selfishness, greed, aggression, violence, usurpation and other such self-centred tendencies and makes it pure and divine. Purged of these discordant tendencies, he is free from anxieties and conflicts. It is this free mind that experiences happiness. He is no more dependent on external paraphernalia to make him happy.

In a nutshell, selfishness is equal to unhappiness and selflessness and reaching out is equal to happiness and peace. Besides gaining composure, living in harmony with the universe is being one with God for, the vedas reveal that the spirit of offering itself is Vishnu, the immanent. By offering ourselves at the service of the universe let’s merge ourselves in God and fulfill the goal of our life.

The above article (source : Speaking Tree from Times of India 15/02/2015) represents the exact value for which Zenitex stands for, i.e. the philosophy of the Universe and not only do we believe in this, but, we have also implemented the same in our work place and working style. Zenitex has complete faith in the core thought process of this philosophy i.e. whatever you give to the Universe or Nature, it has a Unique way of giving it back to us. And because of these miracles and blessings Zenitex is what it is today. Zenitex has pledged to keep working relentlessly following this theory and be the pioneers in ushering in this new era for the generations to come.

Thanks & Regards – Team ZENITEX

zenitex valentines day heading 130216

Diehard Romantics love it. Cynics despise it. Youngsters wait for it. In short, no one can avoid it – Valentine’s Day is firmly established as a cultural happening! Whatever your feelings are about it, make it your own by taking the opportunity to show appreciation for the one who loves you unconditionally : Mother Nature!

Valentine’s Day is an occasion celebrated on February 14 and while it has a very long history dating back hundreds of years, the scale of the occasion we have today is largely thanks (or no thanks) to marketers.

Valentines Day is big business and as such has the potential to have substantial impact on the environment. For example, if all the cards gifted on valentine’s day are laid end to end would stretch around the world 5 times! That’s a lot of trees.

Hence, buy your gifts this Valentines day with the planet in mind.

If Valentines Day is an important day for you or the one you love; then you can also show a bit of extra love for the environment by carefully considering what you buy. Here’s some ideas:

Cards made from recycled or tree-free paper (this will be indicated on the card)

Consider sending an e-card instead using one of the many quality services around. Nowadays with messenger services like whatsapp and its like and social media it is easier to send e-cards rather than paper cards.

zenitex viral desai valentines-day-candy-images Gift Eco-Friendly Chocolates. Not only are these chocolate better for the environment, it also ensures that cocoa farmers have good living and working conditions.  These are known as Fair trade and/or organic chocolate.

zenitex viral desai valentines-day-roses

Buy Organic Locally grown Flowers. If flowers are your style, go for a fresh bouquet of your favourites locally. It beats buying imported flowers that have often been doused in pesticides. Check out to find a sustainable florist near you.

Zenitex viral desai Valentines-Day-Flowers-1

Plant a tree with your Valentine’s  name on it, this will remain forever for generations to come as a memory of your Valentine and every leaf of that tree will remind your valentine of how much you love him / her.

If you wish to give jewellery, consider purchasing from jewellers who are certified to be sourcing precious metals and gemstones in an ecologically and socially responsible manner. Or considering something really offbeat like a wooden ring – they look amazing.

zenitex viral desai lr Holidays___Saint_Valentines_Day_Rozy_i_vino_057055_

Arrange dinner at a local restaurant specializing in organic or locally grown food accompanied by a nice organic drink. Set the mood with earth-friendly candles.

Book a retreat in a wildlife reserve, park or natural area. Your business will help support the running of such establishments.

zenitex viral desai valentines day natural-perfume

Give natural perfumes and fragrances. By buying natural fragrances, you’ll be showing you not only care for the environment, but the person’s health as other types of perfumes are chemical cocktails.

Rethink Generosity. This February 14, you can also share the love through simple acts of kindness, consideration, compassion, and sharing. Bring a smile to a those who are deprived of it due to poverty. And never forget Nature, All the beauty in this world is due to Mother Nature, grow more trees, this brings a smile on the face of Mother Nature….

Go Green This Valentine’s Day! FALL IN LOVE WITH NATURE!!!

The New Office is an example of energy conservation and environmental protection initiatives followed by Zenitex under the leadership of Mr. Viral Desai, CEO – Zenitex. The whole concept of the office and its interior is the brain child of Mr. Viral Desai. The lights used in the office are all LED, moreover, a transparent pyramid shaped dome is made in the roof to allow light in to the office throughout the day thus avoiding the use of electricity till sunset. An old tree which is growing in the middle of the office is kept alive and it stays in its place while the office is completed around it. More than 80 new plants are planted on the outside wall of this new office. In short this office is a fusion of modern day interior and our age old traditional values.
