Keeping with the civic theme of “No Plastic in Kodai” our CSIRC products demonstrate that people with disabilities can contribute towards the aim and objective of saving these Hills from pollution and perishing. The CSIRC young adults with disabilities create vibrant colored and designed hand-painted functional products of high value: hand pin holders, wall key holders, Christmas decorations, mirrors, trinket boxes, bowls, toys etc. The students never get tired of creative painting and finishing!
This beautiful ecofriendly, biodegradable and disposable tableware comes in different choices of size and shape and are a boon to the hotel industry as well as picnickers. The Leaf Ware products line is a result of the cooperation of the Indian Food and Technology Institute. Leaf Ware is an ecological alternative ideally suited for production by people with disabilities. With recycled paper as the underlay these meal plates, side plates and bowls are leak proof and are molded in heated machines at high temperature and simultaneously sterilized and cut. Our young adults keep themselves busy proudly producing these exquisite environmentally-conscious Leaf Ware items for a never-ending demand from cafes and hotels.
Paper carry bags are much needed in the prospect of a "plastic free" Kodaikanal. Young adults are already well-trained in bag-making. Different sizes and innovative styles are made to order for different demands in the market. Bakeries are our top level customers and they really appreciate the high quality tensile strength of our recycled paper products.
First time in the history of Kodaikanal, manufacture of paper cups were taken up by people with disabilities in the town itself. Five young adults proudly created strong hot cups to cater to the demands of a growing environmentally-aware market.
