Why am I fundraising...?Increase paper recycling,
And 2bin1bag promotion for waste segregation.
India's paper production is 13 million tons every year and only 26% is getting recycled. In coming years paper production is increasing as there is increase in population too. Therefore more trees being cut every year.Not only trees but water,power,oil resources are needed to produce paper. India imports 4.6 million tons of waste paper every year worth Rs 3750 Crores.
If we recycle 1 ton of paper we can save 17 trees,7000 gallons of water,3 barrels of oil,41000 KW of electricity.
For this problem we have started USED2USEFUL social enterprise .
Used2useful collects all kind of used/old paper related items and provide new useful books. through Barter system. so that people can get new books without worriying about money. They can get new books for old books in easy way.
On the other hand we are promoting literature by giving useful books to our customers who give us old/used paper related items. We provide all types of books. We value the value of paper by weighing it.
We do school and apartment camapaigns and also we do free home service. We send all the paper collected to nearest recycling plant for recycling.
