We have made several decorative and attractive items like flowers, birds, trees, dustbins, dolls etc out of waste plastic products and many people are buying our items. The decorative items are being made by our own dedicated PMC staffs and are gradually starting to earn out of their work thereby proving our theme ‘waste to wealth’, added Lego.

Now PMC staffs are also teaching interested persons how to make flowers and other attractive items out of waste plastics.
