To tackle environmental challenges and promote sustainability, Prishita Agarwal and Abhiudai Mishra, both aged 22 and 23 respectively, have made significant achievements in the waste management sector through their company, Mosa Technologies, based in Vancouver, Canada. Abhiudai Mishra born on December 26, 2000 belongs to Udaipur, Rajasthan. 

Agarwal and Mishra, who met at UBC Sauder School of Business, shared a passion for social impact causes, which ultimately led them to co-found Mosa Technologies. Drawing inspiration from their upbringing in India, where resourcefulness was a way of life, the duo set out to address the issue of glass waste.

The journey began in 2021 with the inception of Rescued Glass, a venture born out of a desire to repurpose glass bottles left over from parties and events. Starting with simple cleaning and cutting techniques in their kitchens, Agarwal and Mishra quickly gained support from student residences, bars, and restaurants, taking their company forward.

Rebranding as Mosa Technologies in 2022 marked a significant turning point for the company. With the acquisition of a diamond blade cutter, their production capacity increased, enabling them to upscale operations and make a more substantial impact in waste reduction. 

“Our production capacity used to be 100 a week and now we’ve grown to around 400 a week,” says Agarwal.

Today, Mosa Technologies have a team of eight dedicated individuals who specialize in upcycling glass to create an array of products, including candles and shot glasses. Their innovative approach has gained attention from both consumers and retailers, with products flying off the shelves of 15 retail stores across North America, including the UBC Bookstore.

Driven by a commitment to sustainability, Mosa Technologies has already saved 10,000 glass bottles from ending up in landfills. Looking ahead, Agarwal and Mishra aim to rescue 500,000 bottles within the next three years, solidifying their position as leaders in the circular economy movement.

Furthermore, Mosa Technologies continues to forge partnerships with local businesses, such as the Richmond-based Lulu Island Winery, while offering collection services to encourage greater community involvement in waste reduction efforts.
