Resource Person: Mrs. Nisha Gujarathi

28th August 2018

With a view to prevent use of plastic and save the environment, we conducted a workshop  [28th August 2018] on making bags from the News Papers. Mrs. Nisha Gujarathi, the trainer  taught a group of 12 students how to make F-bags which can carry up to 1.5kgs of weight and  can be used to purchase daily grocery items; D-Bags which are multipurpose bags which can  carry up to 3kgs of weight; Box bags to  carry and store shoes ( up to 5kgs) and Shopping bags  which can carry up to 8 kgs of weight. The bags are very affordable and look trendy too.
