'Sampurn(e)arth' consists of a team of three social entrepreneurs who are part of the Dell Social Innovation Challenge (DSIC). The goal is to find decentralized waste management solutions in urban areas of India through zero-waste facilities with biogas to create compostable waste.

The target demographic for the social aim is the waste-pickers who make their subsistence living working in dumps. The idea is a response to Mumbai's large dumping grounds, which Sampurn(e)arth claims to be one of the biggest in Asia. "The waste-pickers mostly consisting of women and their children contributes to some percentages of recycling but are found to be struggling with poverty, serious health issues and vicious cycle of moneylenders," they write on their DSIC profile.
