Praveen Chauhan

Have you ever wondered what happens to the flowers that you present as offerings to deities in temples or religious institutions? Well, you would have never imagined what happens at renowned Mahabodhi Temple in Bihar. The temple uses floral waste management to turn the flowers into natural dyes for the Khadi products. Praveen Chauhan, a social entrepreneur established MATR, that helps local artisans pay for their hard work. MATR has joined hands with Because of Nature, an Australian-based sustainable clothing label and started the Happy Hands Project. About 50 underprivileged women are part of MATR which takes care of collection and transportation of the material for the project. One can only thank Praveen for his effort for saving nature and reducing the waste burden on the planet.
