Residents of Malibu Town in Sector 47, Gurgaon took a creative route to recycle the diyas that were discarded after Diwali. The socially aware peeps of G-town, who are keen towards waste management, carried a collection drive to pick up terracotta leftovers from the houses within the area to convert them into a scintillating art installation.
After the diyas were collected, they were painted in varied tints and studded on a washed-out wall using cement. This move by the Gurgaon peeps aimed to ensure that post festivities, terracotta wastes do not reach the water bodies, as baked clay is non-biodegradable. Even the pieces that were in good condition were given to the banjaras for reselling. What’s more, some folks from Delhi and Noida have also started following the footsteps of these creative minds.
This initiative is not only beautifying the surroundings but is also creating consciousness among masses about reusing scraps in innovative ways.
