At Fully stoked We have the rag bag project with really cool bags, wallets and organisers that are made from recycled plastic bags collected by ragpickers in New Delhi. These Plastic rags are collected, washed, dried and separated by colour which then go into a machine, which presses them into thicker and more durable sheets. One sheet contains approximately 60 plastic bags. No dyes and inks are used in this proces. The sheets are then cut, lined with cloth and stitched or moulded into the various products.
The project at Fully stoked is already creating jobs for 50 ragpickers, people at collection centers and fabricators (mainly women) in New Delhi. It is providing them and their families 'means of livelihood' and access to more opportunities.
