Join the race to make the world a better place

On the issue of environment, the theme for the year 2016 as decided by the UN is “Join the race to make the world a better place”.

We try and do out bit at Diya …here’s some of the little steps we take –

  • segregate garbage and teach our trainees about the importance of segregation and how to practice it, with physical demonstrations, repeated lessons on the subject and practice at the work space
  • friends, neighbors and benefactors drop off empty pint beer bottles at the center which we  turn into table lamps…quite the hit at our pop up shops at IT campuses in Bangalore
  • newspaper that is collected, is made into pens, gold, silver and copper multipurpose bowls & bins and shopping bags
  • Photo film paper cardboard rolls (collected from photo studios) are converted into unique containers and tea light holders
  • Seed pods from the streets of Cooke Town and surrounding areas are used on photo frames, coasters and tea light holders
  • Old pamphlets and magazines are converted into joyous Christmas wreaths
  • Flower petals and leaves from discarded garlands and bouquets are collected from temples in the vicinity and converted into holi powder
  • Cloth scraps are made into bags

All our up cycled products are available at the center. If required in bulk, do place an order. You can see our catalogs on
