The company has organized a recycled tant waste material garment fashion show to raise funds for the same.
Coinciding with this World Environment Day theme of June 5, "7 billion dreams. 1 planet. Consume with care.", India Green Reality organised the exhibition of designer Recycled Tant Waste fashion, showcasing garments created out of rejected tant materials from Fulia in Nadia district of West Bengal.
Internationally trained fashion designer Nandan Das, who has working with the weavers of Fulia for the last five years, has designed all the clothes, mainly ethnic wear.
