For instance, recycled paper, colourful invitation cards, ribbons from bouquets or packed gifts, strings from paper bags, dry flowers, piece of wood, leaves, buttons etc. This way, we have carefully minimised waste by 'Refusing' to send these waste items across to land -fill sites and 'Reducing' carbon footprint by 'Reusing' them by making Rakhee out if it,” said Mr Kamal Meattle, CEO of Paharpur Business Centre & Software Technology Incubator Park.
Number of employees participated in the Rakhee competition and made bunch of colourful Rakhees. “This is a wonderful idea to promote the use of home-made eco-friendly Rakhees instead of buying new ones from market. Moreover, every manufactured new product has some carbon foot print.

Prizes were given away to the best three eco-friendly Rakhees. Post the competition some of the employees tied Rakhees around the plants, vowing to plant saplings on the occasion of Rakhee each year at the park, nearest to their homes.
