With a motto of ‘Fashion with Conscious’ see how Conserve is working with rag pickers in Delhi & NCR to provide them sustainable livelihood.

The products of Conserve India have become Agents For Change.

Born of a desire to reduce India’s mountain of waste, improve energy efficiency and help some of Delhi’s poorest out of the city’s slums, Conserve India achieves all this by turning plastic bags into high fashion.

Honored to be part of DILY – Delhi, I Love You!

We are extremely excited to share with you that we will be part of DILY ( Delhi, I love you).

For uninitiated, it is a long term movement that has variety of components. First and foremost is the screening of a film by name DILY . It will be followed by a series of 120 events that will be promoting the city – Delhi, its artists, its dreamers, its poets, and simply its people and their initiatives to make the city better. This movement will happen in  180 neighborhoods of Delhi and will be endorsed by the 20 Indians and foreign actors participating in the movie

DILY will basically be a platform to promote all the available positive energies in Delhi, to connect people and organizations that do not usually work together. It also aims to celebrate the city – Delhi with an international movie.

And, this is going to be real biggie with the participation of 150 artist, writers, and individuals and with dozens of NGOs and government bodies.

We will update you with more details soon.

Thank you Mr. Luke Bell, Head of Relationship Fundraising at Oxfam Australia !!!!!!!

Thank you Mr. Luke Bell, Head of Relationship Fundraising at Oxfam Australia for visiting us! We are really honored. We had a lovely time with you. Hope you too did!

Also, thanks a ton for your kind words

“I honestly have to say I left your office feeling inspired by your work and the social enterprise that you’ve worked to create.   It was a brilliant experience to be able to head out to the slum and see how your supply chain fits together and how this is helping people to move up and then to see how each of your complimentary skill sets fit together to make marketable products and a manufacturing process that is also helping people to flourish. It has been a vibrant experience to say the least” – Luke Bell, Oxfam Australia

On an ending note, we had a visitor from Oxfam Australia earlier too. We really look forward to continue this relationship with Oxfam
