Old newspapers, bangles, wool, bottles, old clothes can turn into eye-catching wall hangings, flower wash, flowers and key holders!
Meet Asha Subba, a 50-year old homemaker who is not a crafting expert but is zealously creating and crafting right from her home. Making the best use of the stuff lying around, Asha personally makes the décor items for her house and does not believe in opting for ready-to-use plastic décor items in the market. An eye for detail and creative nuances picked up over the years without any formal trainings has not deterred her from pursuing her passion. From using paper waste to plastic waste, she is taking complete ownership of her discarded items.
She believes in a zero-waste lifestyle and is of the opinion that if everyone becomes a conscious about the environment, there can be a lot more reduction of the ever-growing waste around houses and localities. With this small step, Asha is an inspiration to many wanting to contribute and live an eco-friendly life while still keeping their homes beautiful.
On this World Environment Day let us saIute Asha’s effort towards Reducing, Reusing and Recycling for building a more Swachh Bharat (Clean India)
