Here’s how a company is making cool sunglasses out of chips packets
The problem of waste disposal, especially plastic waste, is definitely one of the major concerns for every country. With the increased consumption of products that come with plastic packaging, the amount of waste has also increased by leaps and bounds. However, there are people who are working day and night to find a solution to that problem and this small chemical lab from Pune may have come up with a ray of hope.
Manufactured by a company called Ashaya, the product is a pair of sunglasses and guess what it is made of? Packets of chips! Yes, you read that right. According to a Twitter post shared by one of the founders of the company, Anish Malpani, the product has been created from plastic waste that is non-biodegradable. Now that is a major high five for the environment.
The clip included in the post shows how the sunglasses were made in a step by step process. It will leave you highly inspired. “This has been the hardest thing I have ever been a part of. Finally: Presenting the world's first recycled sunglasses made from packets of chips, right here in India!” read the caption.
Malpani added some more information in the following tweets as well. “We, at Ashaya | WITHOUTâ„¢, have found a way to extract materials from it using our patent-pending process to produce high-quality materials and products, starting with sunglasses (and coasters). We do all this while genuinely empowering waste-pickers. And a lot more,” read the tweet.
People were thoroughly impressed with the post. Many congratulated the company for coming up with such an important initiative.
