After the recent loss of her guiding force, Manya decided to channel her grief into a meaningful project that not only pays homage to her grandmother but also promotes sustainabilityThe project aims to transform Grandma Rudramma's cherished sarees into eco-friendly bags, reflecting the values instilled in Manya by her grandmother. This endeavor becomes a testament to the enduring impact of a loved one's inspiration, driving the younger generation towards positive change.

With "Project Grandma's Green Weave," Manya not only celebrates her grandmother's legacy but also inspires a new wave of sustainability among the youth. Her innovative approach to repurposing traditional attire showcases the power of creativity and love in addressing environmental challenges.

Manya , through her "Grandma's Green Weave (Saree to Sustain)" project, has successfully distributed over 300 bags to local vendors and the public during the Pongal shopping spree. Utilizing approximately 25 + sarees, she and her team have crafted nearly 300 bags. Manya says , around 12-15 bags were  stiched out of a saree. Eager to broaden the project's impact, Manya aims to involve more like-minded individuals. She encourages support by accepting donations of sarees, bedspreads, and blouse pieces for this meaningful cause.
