As you all know samathvam was formed with the wellness of the society in mind how we can be of help and what we can do to awaken awareness in the minds of the people towards their responsibilities in the society. Our paper drive was also started with same initiative, the cause was towards the elimination of the use of plastic and therby help in maintaining the ecological balance in our environment. We started as a trickle by collecting newspaper and preparing covers than we went to drive to distribute them amongst the fruit and vegetables vendors and making them aware of the illl effects of using plastic, but then we decided to do it on slightly bigger scale and apart from fruit and vegetables vendors increase in target group.
After a brainstorming session we went and talked to few of them and their response was so overwhelming that we immediately went into production. Now the trickle has expanded into a full flown gush. We are proud to say that we have also provided employment to about 5 LADIES who are making cover's on regular basis and without whose support and enthusiasm it would not have been possible. Special thanks to Mrs. Sangeetha Bhatkal who has been very enthusiastic and support for the drive.
