MyVerduraCare team told TimesNext,
“We believe in quality over quantity. Hence, all sellers on our platform are onboarded after evaluating them on the product, process of manufacturing, packaging, brand reputation, credibility. This is to make sure that our customers get exactly what is committed to them on our site, and the product quality and packaging are of high standards.”

Did you know: One plastic toothbrush can take up to 400 years to decompose. So basically, the toothbrush your ancestors threw away still exists, and the one you’ll throw away will exist for four generations.
It’s high time to make sustainable choices.

Atreyi told WOI (1), a site about women entrepreneurs in India,
“Never let others convince you that your idea is not good enough. If your gut is telling you can do it, then just go with it.”

Beginnings for MyVerduraCare
