Wearing the saree, Vasuki reveals that she’s wearing a used sari which she found discarded at the Resource Recovery Facility (RFF) at the Varkala municipality. By wearing a used, discarded saree, she said that she’s trying to promote the concept of reusing items.
“Today, I have worn this and come to a meeting on the Shivagiri pilgrimage to be held here in Varkala. I am adopting this practice to promote reuse. I have no hesitations or stigma in wearing a sari already worn by someone else. For me, the environment is primary,” she says in the video, all done in a bid to promote a more safer environment.
Currently, there’s a project that’s been doing the rounds in order to save the enviroment. A bunch of “green technicians” have been collecting clean and dry non-biodegradable waste from houses in order to recycle and reuse them.
In the video, Dr Vasuki repeats the new motto that one should adopt: “old is fashionable”.
