Who needs leather when you have old seat belts?

Green The Map shows that you don’t need to take more from the environment to make the things that we need. We already have them! Plus, through this initiative, Green The Map provides income to one of the most important sections of our society, the waste pickers and scrap dealers. That's some impact!

Green The Map

Green The Map is the fair trade arm of Swechha, a Delhi-based social organization. Swechha aims to inspire, create and support a just, equitable and sustainable society, for everyone and forever.

Through this initiative, they have endeavoured to make best use out of waste through their designs.Furthermore, there is a section of our very own society that is doing the job of sorting the waste created by us. Green The Map works with these waste collectors and scrap dealers to collect the waste and upcycle it. They use tyre tube, juice cartons, milk packets, beer cans, chips packets and almost everything that has been thrown away to give it a new life.

They lead by example and show that nothing needs to be wasted, that we can upcycle just about any of the things that we use daily, and they support the very important community of scrap dealers and others by engaging them in production, sales and other operational aspects of the company!

Green The Map also boasts of India’s first upcycled office. Watch the video here to see the journey from waste to utility and beauty.

You will directly support the waste collectors and scrap dealers that Green The Map works with to collect the discarded materials that they upcycle into products.

You will prevent discarded car seat belts from reaching the landfill, and thus prevent pollution.

By using upcycled materials, you reduce the resources and energy needed to make things out of fresh materials.

Green The Map

Who are we?

Formerly Green The Gap, Green the Map is the fair trade arm of Swechha, a Delhi-based social organization. At Swechha, we aim to inspire, create and support - a just, equitable and sustainable society, for everyone and forever. The journey of Green the map started in the year 2009 and we have been extracting the best out of waste since.

So, here is a quick story to sum up the inception of Green the Gap, now Green the Map.

Vimlendu Jha, the face behind the enterprise was shooting a documentary called Disposable on the
unacknowledged but extremely pressing issue of urban waste and its blind disposal in the already
overflowing landfills of Delhi. Furthermore, there is a section of our very own society that is doing our
job by sorting the waste created by us. Despite being the real environmentalists, the presence and efforts
of rag pickers and waste collectors are neither recognized nor awarded. So, the numerous tetra paks,
chips packets, milk packets and cans that we dispose off everyday without a second thought actually end
up polluting not just the air, water and land but also the lives of these people and communities.

So the question- “Could there be more to waste than just the landfill?’ led to the beginning of Green-ing the Map.

 

No, we don’t directly extract the waste out of landfill. But we work with the waste collectors and scrap dealers across the city to collect the waste and upcycle it. We use tyre tube, juice cartons, milk packets, beer cans, chips packets and almost everything that has been thrown away to give it a new life in the form of accessories, stationary and items of home décor. Nothing is wasted.
