A Movement 5,000 Years in the Making

 Bhoomi Founders Left to Right: Arpit Bhopalkar, Elora Turner, Shreyas Oak

 

Arpit Bhopalkar grew up in India playing Table-Tennis. After training sessions, his father would rush Arpit and his brother to the nearest street vendor for a refreshing glass of sugarcane juice. His coaches and doctors recommended sugarcane juice for natural hydration and sustained energy. He went on to become an International Table-Tennis athlete for India. When Arpit moved to New Orleans to study and play for Tulane, there was no sugarcane juice to be found. And that’s when the idea for Bhoomi was born.

Now, we know what you’re thinking. “Sugar water? Really?” But here’s the thing: people have been pressing the juice from sugarcane for centuries—drinking it straight, or adding natural flavors like lime or ginger.  Bhoomi simply extracts the water from whole sugarcane stalks. You know how powerful wheatgrass is, right? Well, sugarcane is just another variety of grass. Its elixir contains electrolytes, vitamins, amino acids, and phytonutrients—so it hydrates more effectively than water alone.

Bhoomi reflects the principles of Ayurveda—an ancient, 5,000 year old form of Indian health science that’s all about balance. To support balanced health, we infuse cane water with Ayurvedic super botanicals to nourish people and our planet. Equally important, we are supporting justice for the minority sugarcane farming community. And we’re doing it all using regenerative resources.

In naming this venture “Bhoomi”, which means “Mother Earth” in Sanskrit, we’re inspired by Ayurvedic wisdom, looking to re-engage in a healthy, balanced, back-and-forth between our planet and its people. Join us in a cheers to your health, so we all can get better with Bhoomi.
