Manya Harsha might just be 11 years old, but she is very passionate about the environment and humanity’s effect on it. Despite her young age, she has been involved in various environmental initiatives, like a children’s walkathon in her community to increase awareness concerning saving water. Manya now turns kitchen waste into papers. These papers are eco-friendly, act just like regular papers, and will decompose naturally.
If you’d like something to do with the extra vegetable/kitchen waste you have, you can make two or three A4 sheets of paper out of 10 onion peels, using Manya’s method. You might choose paper like this over regular paper, which goes through extensive processing including chemicals and large amounts of water wastage. Manya recently made an Indian national flag using different colors of paper stuck together for India’s Independence Day on August 15, to motivate people to use such recycled papers in various ways.
