Everyone knows that washing their hands and keeping a social distance from people is incredibly important to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus right now. Essential businesses that are allowed to operate are sanitizing high-touch areas several times a day such as door entrance, countertops and so on.
What people may not realise is that there is another common virus carrier and that is your shoes?
Viruses are potentially living on the shoe soles or heels hence, it is important to reduce the cross-contamination and spread of diseases through shoe with a disinfectant mat.
Swift has designed Footwear Sanitization Station which helps in stopping virus from travelling one place to another via shoes. When people travel risky area or outside pathogens, germs, virus may get placed on footwear and ride inside with us in premises hence shoes could be possible carriers for harmful germs, virus & bacteria from risk area to safe area premises, i.e. cross contamination By considering this scenario Swift has developed footwear sanitization stations which will help to reduce spread cross contamination from one place to another.

Nirmalya Kalash :
Swift has come across this idea to find a unique solution for one of a major cause which is a religious tradition of throwing ‘Nirmalya’ – floral items, pooja items, coconuts, and so on. While most of the contributions are come enveloped by Plastic sacks and in water of rivers, lakes and ponds.
Swift has designed Nirmalya Kalash in which peoples can donate all their Nirmalya during religious festivals and poojas. Swift has given this big solution over making Nirmalya kalash, so let us all get together and save our environment from the pollution by using Nirmalya Kalash for disposal of the Holy Nirmalya in a proper way.
Probably the greatest yield of pooja and celebrations in India is the huge amounts of nirmalya and throw it away in the water. As this Nirmalya Kalash will not only save our cities from being polluted but will also provide aesthetics and a neat sophisticated way to dispose the Nirmalya without disturbing people’s religious sentiments with proud feeling of Green Farewell to preserve the environment health.
