Jaspal Singh Naol, Social Initiative Director, explained why Plastic Bottle Caps has been used, “There is a need to engage people in social transformation which is in itself a big challenge for the society. Creative and Green Innovative methodology is the only way we can transform human behaviour towards Nature. The threat of plastic to nature is no hidden fact. There is only two simple steps to solve this rising threat. First one is Stop or Limit usage of Plastic goods and the second is Conversion of Waste into Art form”
