Amma’s vision of turning “Waste into Wealth” is blossoming all around the world. Amrita Upcycle, a GreenFriends project, was created by Amma to address the global problem of plastic waste. Founded in 2001, GreenFriends seeks to inspire people to serve and protect nature, so that all life-forms may live in harmony upon the Earth.
Is it possible for a thrown-away plastic bag to become a useful, durable and beautiful object that people will be eager to purchase? The answer is a clear and resounding, “Yes!” Using simple tools and a basic sewing machine, Amrita Plastic Project's global team transforms discarded food packaging, used shopping bags, tossed Tetra Pak® juice boxes and much more into beautiful, useful, long-lasting products. In the process, the waste material not only gets recycled, its value goes up as well—thus the term "upcycled”. After sorting the waste plastics from rubbish bins, then hand washing, sterilizing and drying, a wide range of unique plastic materials are conscientiously handcrafted into purses, wallets, jewelry, household items, and a variety of other accessories and items.
