Recycling Newspaper in Slums

Newspapers are re-cycled into paper bags and sold to the chemists and stores as an alternate source of income.  The Anganwadi school in the slums takes care of the toddlers between 2- 5 yr old while their parents are working elsewhere. We provide newspapers to the slums to achieve their goals. This could become a small scale industry if encouraged considering that plastic is now banned in Bangalore. The Anganwadi schools are also helped by the Ashwasan Org by providing what they need for school apart from Govt aid.

    Excellent, commendable work

  2. Thanks Subir. Several Org’s are working on this. We are lacking an organized movement . Hopefully it will get streamlined better eventually.
