Description: Sustainable Recreation With Ficci Flo Bangalore and E waste Social  Currently, in India only 5% of e waste is recycled in the formal sector. Even in a world with major environmental challenges, formal recycling methods are limited. E -waste Social Pvt ltd as a B2B platform for aggregation of e-waste, responsible e-waste management, carbon footprint reduction certification, and fulfillment of EPR and CSR through the value chain.  E Waste Social is helping make it possible to recycle more E waste than ever before and making it transparent , efficient and sustainable . As part of a pioneering collaboration with Ficci Flo Bangalore , we are accelerating the use of e waste into a Mural . E Waste Social with our Founder Iram Maimuna  immediately embraced and ran with the idea, creating a mural that helped bring the outside inside. Its a butterfly which reminds us of “Sustainable Recreation “ The resulting work illustrates the message of an exciting recreation management movement called Sustainable Recreation and clearly articulates love and passion for the recycling. Sustainable recreation is a new way of acting and thinking about how recreation improves lives, communities and the natural world. It engages with the enormous and creative energy of people who care for and benefit from circular economy. This passion for natural resources inspires citizen of the land, creating a relationship in which people recognize the need to protect natural resources  for future generations. The Mural will be completely made out of E waste and would thereby showcase creativity sustainability. It will be showcased on the World E waste Day in Bangalore , India .
