Shimla, October 28
Governor Rajendra Vishwanath Arlekar inaugurated the Great Wall of Shimla, a ‘waste-to-wealth’ initiative of Orchid Shimla, here today. The Great Wall of Shimla, an enviroscope mural, about 275 feet long and 15 feet high, has been created using approximately five lakh waste bottle caps and carbon free recycled plastic.
On this occasion, the Governor said Orchid had made a new beginning in the direction of environmental protection by using waste material in an artistic way. “Our festivals have also been made keeping in mind the environment. We worship trees in our culture. The whole world is adopting our thoughts, traditions and culture. We have to protect our culture,” he added.
Vithal Venkatesh Kamat, chairman and managing director, Orchid Shimla, said the quest to turn waste to wealth had inspired every member at Orchid to think out of the box and create visible examples that would motivate others to be respectful of our planet.
