# Converting garment scraps from garment industries into paper
The garment industry creates tonnes of waste scrap from cuttings and trimmings which end up in land fills, these scraps are collected and converted into paper at our paper factories. This paper is further more used in the packaging industry, its wood free, non chemical recycled paper. With even the water recycled. Around 50,000 sheets of paper were made which were rotated back into the industry
Only women are employed in the trade
# Use of flowers from markets to create prints and natural dyes
The festivities that are a constant in the country make the flower market business boom, but a lot are discarded the next day which again amounts to waste.
As a fashion organization, we collect the flowers and use the chlorophyll from them to print onto garments. Using the chlorophyll of plants, we not only reduce the use of digital prints but also engage in women empowerment and teaching the locals a new trade.
The sale from the garments which are exhibited world wide are utilized for special projects for children regarding education and teaching of new trades to people from lower economic back grounds
