Conserve has directed its efforts towards environmental conservation, while simultaneously creating socially uplifting conditions by empowering underprivileged individuals with employable opportunities since 1997.
They have patented a technology to convert single use plastic into handmade recycled plastic also known as HRP in 2008 which mimics vegan leather and is used to create fashion and home products. With their continuous efforts, they have been able to upcycle 360 tonnes of plastic, train 2800 people in upcycling processes, increase the income of waste pickers by almost 150% and avoid 53,000 kgs of CO2 emissions.

Champion for Community Engagement
Conserve India & LIFAFFA have been awarded two awards at the UN Women Asia Pacific WEP’s Awards at the India ceremony today.
1. Conserve India was awarded as the Champion for Community Engagement and Partnerships in the SME category.
2. Our CEO, Kanika Ahuja, was awarded the first runner up in the Youth Leadership category.
Kanika Ahuja, talked about how gender equality drills a sense of prosperity in our society. “Prosperity is not just about wealth but growth of social fibre. It is the sense in which society as a whole and humans must have the opportunity to realise their full potential without social shackles that hold them down. To be the way they are and have the freedom to dream, to do, to grow, and to enable others to do the same, only then, can we imagine our world coming closer to being prosperous only if people themselves are equally allowed to prosper!”
