Book 1

Our founders, Shyamwati Chathli, who we fondly call Aunty, and Urmila inspired in us a zest for recycling. Aunty would laboriously cut plastic bags into thin thread-like strips, and using crochet make the most beautiful bags.Aunty’s work was carried further by Mrinalini and Mukesh, who continue to make bags with recycled cloth material. Mrinalini also recycles newspapers, scrap paper to make envelopes, paper bags, papier mache items. Mandakini has taken it even further and made it into a fine art, with jewellery made from crushed CDs, household furniture made from newspapers. And whenever we have Ramji visiting us, we learn how to make jewellery from seeds, feathers, beads and scrap. Recently, Mrinalini has dreamt up a project whereby we make Christmas decorations with scrap material.
