The Upcycled Project

We are proud to announce our support to Upcycled Projects, an inspiring initiative founded by Yashh Somani and Krrish Somani, two dynamic Grade 11 students from Cathedral and John Connon School, following the IB curriculum. Upcycled Projects is committed to revolutionizing waste management in India through a community-oriented and innovative approach in association with Aadvikaa Clean Tech.

Upcycled Projects aims to address the challenge of solid waste management through a holistic approach. A key focus is the simplification of the upcycling process, encouraging collective action to transform scrap materials into valuable products with support from Aadvikaa Clean Tech. Through public-private partnerships, awareness campaigns, and community-wide collection drives, the initiative seeks to create a responsible and sustainable waste management landscape.

“The Upcycled Project seeks to transform the waste management landscape in India by pioneering a holistic approach that focuses on community-oriented and innovative solutions for dealing with waste materials. Through centering on public-private partnerships, the project aims to encourage proper waste disposal and collection at the community level by generating awareness and responsibility surrounding waste management in peri-urban India” – Yashh Somani and Krrish Somani.

Aadvikaa Clean Tech plays a pivotal role in advancing the project’s mission by simplifying the upcycling process. We are actively engaged in their collective effort to transform scrap material into valuable products. The project, focuses on building a community-wide understanding of the significance of recycling and upcycling. Aadvikaa Clean Tech also supports their initiatives including the dissemination of crucial knowledge through resources like factsheets and children’s books, complemented by the organization of workshops to spread this essential message.

Aadvikaa Clean Tech takes a hands-on approach with community-wide collection drives, collaborating with companies & individual bodies to gather plastic waste for the explicit purpose of upcycling. The resulting useful products, such as Recycled Boards, Cupboards, Waste Bin, Benches, etc… which serve as eco-friendly alternatives to the use of plywood, are not only crafted with care but also provided for further use value to the community.

Envisioning a Sustainable Future:

Our collaboration with Upcycled Projects is a step towards envisioning a future where waste is not a problem but a valuable resource. The recycled boards made from the waste collected by the two students were produced from multi-layered plastic waste to offer a practical solution, contributing to both – environmental sustainability and responsible consumption.

Snehalaya means ‘Home of Love’, and was founded in 1989 to provide support for women, children and LGBT communities, who have been affected by HIV and AIDS, trafficking, sexual violence, and poverty.
