Upcycle edge and its various dimensions : 

Over the period, apart from the Upcycling and eco awareness among the mass, we have realized several deeper experiences with the rural and economically weaker section people. We want to bring transformation through service and humanity. We believe, nature needs our help as well as there are many needy craftsmen who have strong skills and crafting abilities creating greater value for the people around us. Ecowings is passionate to give them a wider platform through its global network.
Implementing simple concepts and ideas are making really big differences not only to save our environment but also creating greater livelihood for needy people. Upcycling is such a unique process which involves lot of creativity and crafting skills. We always try to blend technology, Usability, Aesthetics and functional design with creativity to come up new sustainable innovations.

Upcycling in Indian Scenario : 

In India the concept of Up-cycling is still far behind, it has greater level of potential to tap the market and can open new product design interventions. As per our point of view so far Upcycling is more like a craft skills and needs to be understood with different perspectives. When the "Design" term is involved in up-cycling then we are talking something serious and it has deeper significance to meet the user needs and current fashions. In India there are few brands who are offering Upcycled Products but the current product range is having more craft and individual hobby fragrances. So far many initiatives were taken but only few Upcycled brands could sustain because of lack of branding and lack of understanding, lesser involvement in design and styling.

At Ecowings every day goes for new discoveries and searching for new materials, concepts, ideas mock ups etc. We try to stretch ourselves from our shelves and get the real experiences for the innovative outcomes.

Upcycling Opportunities :

1. Increasing number of mobile devices and their consumption creating question mark for the future and causing pollution across the mass. This is is the area where several potential opportunities can be identified to come up new life style products.

2. Huge amount of Electrical industrial waste is coming out. We need to open ourselves and look at the potential opportunities.

3. Upcycling for the Wild Life Protection : How upcycling could be a powerful tool to save wild life. It can accelerate the young creative potential and connect them to nature and its significance.





The list goes on !!


Have a rocking time.

Lenses from Holland at Ecowings India !

We all had a great time with four Dutch young enthusiastic people from Holland during their India Trip. Specially Joost and Bernhard who were together with me for four days while preparing short film for Ecowings and discussed several things about life, education, culture, sustainability, communication and many more subjects. It was a wonderful experience while working on the Ecowings short film in Indore in which many complexities and talents were involved together. I wish each and every single day should be this much productive with full acceleration and ideas. If we walk on the path with clear directions then it becomes much more easier to reach and journey becomes more faster as you imagine.

It was an honor for us as this time Holland's Prime Minister Mr. Mark Rutte recently visited India to meet our Honorable Prime Minister Shree Narendar Modi to build positive and mutual grounds for both the countries. I must share the statement given by Netherland's PM Mark Rutte - "At this moment, we have 180-200 Dutch companies operating in India and over 60 branches of Indian companies in the Netherlands," No doubt, It is his great step is to create a bridge for future developments and growth which may bring prosperity and open new opportunities for both the countries. Keeping the same mindset and vision we are continuously putting our efforts through our mutual collaborations as we already have established with Angela Rooijmans in Holland and intend to broaden our horizons to spread our sustainable ideas and innovations for the benefits of environment and green future.

We have several resources available and we just need to combined them together with greater level of clarity and creativity with further national and international collaborations to open new channels. Right from the childhood, Indians are taught as they have to compete within the community in which they restrict themselves, but from my point of view we should connect ourselves with this planet and seek out greater opportunities to work together where cross culture activities and positive actions can be involved to achieve the set targets, higher purpose and goals which will not only enrich our skills and individual weaker section people but also for strengthen our nation as well. Through this way we could be more responsible for what we are doing here and can create wider platforms for the skilled people.

While interacting with Bernahard V and Joost D many discussion happened and I realized the gaps in our education system needs to be filled with innovative approaches. We wish if we could create a platform in future for Eco Conscious Education.

My sincere Thanks to Angela Rooijmans and the entire team from Holland.
