Three women from there went to Well Paper in Auroville last year with their designer and now their trainer has gone with the designer to Leh to work with them. Pagir runs a small business selling products made from recycled rubbish. The same artist from Well Paper also conducted a week long session with Trash To Cash, another MESH supplier here in Delhi, together they learned a new way of making paper mache products. It is planned that Trash to Cash will make a visit to Well Paper Auroville later in the year to exchange ideas.
