Over the years, we have participated in numerous exhibitions, trade shows etc. Our trade shows participation keeps increasing, so are the number of questions on HRP – Handmade recycled plastic.
At the moment, we are participating in 3 trade shows back to back. Having said that, time is at its best for a HRP post.
Let’s dive in!!!!!!!!!
So, What is HRP ?
The polythene bags that are picked up from Delhi’s street every day are recycled. We call this recycled material by the name – “HRP -Handmade Recycled Plastic”. Conserve India has developed a environmentally benign process that converts waste polythene bags into thicker sheets. We named these sheets as “HRP – Handmade Recycled Plastic”
These sheets have properties that are significantly different from the original thin film poly-bags that are picked by rag-pickers. Our innovative HRP sheets can be stitched, embroidered upon and woven to create a variety of marketable products out of trash.
Sounds exciting right!
So, how do we produce that?
It’s a 4 step production process. Plastic bags are washed, dried, mixed with fabric and pressed into handmade recycled plastic (HRP) through these processes.
- Step 1- Plastic bags are collected, washed, dried, and separated by color
- Step 2 –A machine presses the plastic bags into thick and durable sheets,
- Step 3 -The sheets are cut, lined with cloth, and stitched or molded.
- Step 4 –The finished products go through quality control and packaging
Is there any value addition? Yes, Indeed!!!!!
- Environmental Friendly – Compared to conventional recycling process, our HRP process uses much less energy and also causes no pollution
- Waste Management / Environmental Friendly – Our HRP process also helps reducing the environmental problems caused by plastic waste.
- Patented Process – Conserve India has acquired “patent” for this process – “A process for conversion of polythene to sheets”. The patent was issued at Delhi on July 17’ 2006 to inventors Mr. Shalabh Ahuja, CEO, Conserve India & Ms. Anita Ahuja, Creative Director, Conserve India
