Grandma Sita is a social brand that promote circular economy, especially focused on sustainable production / consumption and reduction of food waste.
We all started somewhere. For us, this was a paid tribute to Elena’s beloved grandmother Rosita. That’s why we name us Sita, nickname of Rosita.
Elena from early childhood had spent time with her grandmother, who taught her about the importance of seasonal eating and in summary the true value of food.
The way Grandma Sita and her generation have minimized their waste is very much about living a simple and minimalist life.
Somehow our grandmothers become grand-influencers, creating impact and awareness in our lifestyle.
Unfortunately, in recent years consumers are not entirely aware of the fact, that every product we save from waste, has a positive impact on our climate.
An emotional motivation as well that seeks to recover the shared time between different generations, through the love of homemade food, promoting healthy and sustainable habits.
At Grandma Sita, we truly believe that our grandmothers are changemakers contributing to a better world for the next generations!

♻️ A circular economy (also referred to as “circularity”) is an economic system aimed at eliminating waste and the continual use of resources. Circular systems employ reuse, sharing, repair, refurbishment, remanufacturing and recycling to create a closed-loop system, minimising the use of resource inputs and the creation of waste, pollution and carbon emissions. The circular economy aims to keep products, equipment and infrastructure in use for longer, thus improving the productivity of these resources.
