Our Waste Paper Collection Drive provides us an opportunity to give back to the environment in our own little way. It was first carried out in 5 schools of Jaipur but now along with the Pink City, it also covers Delhi and Pune. As a part of this campaign, PARVAAH collection boxes are placed in various organizations from where old newspapers, notebooks, worksheets and other waste sheets of paper are regularly collected by our volunteers. Every three weeks a batch of the gathered paper is sent to a recyclable mill for recycling to make beautiful Paper Bags, Diaries and Notebooks. These are then sold to embassies and in various exhibitions held each year in Delhi/Jaipur/Pune.
What is the impact of waste paper collection and recycling? To put it simply, Recycling one ton of newsprint saves about 1 ton of wood while recycling 1 ton of printer or copier paper saves slightly more than 2 tons of wood. Thus recycled paper leads to saving of trees and hence, the environment. So, let`s join hands and make this campaign a success.
