Goodbye Plastic Bags

Kuilappalayam Cultural Centre (KCC) Auroville started a new project: “GOODBYE PLASTIC BAGS”. We, children, youths, men and women, from KCC are fed up of all these plastic bags, who are demolishing our environment. We think, it is not enough to clean up, because people just throw them again and again. Because of that we will create awareness programs of preventing plastic bags. Our idea is to stitch bags from old sarees and clothes instead of using plastic bags. We started already the production. For this, we request for old clothes, sarees, lungies, nighties, bed sheets, and blankets, all things which you don’t need any more and participate with us to create NO MORE PLASTIC BAGS in our world. We will sell these recycling bags to the shops for the same prize which they paid for the plastic bags from the store. Everybody who buys from the shops they get our carry bags for free. Our beautiful cloth bags have a lot of interest already. Please support us for:


You can bring your cloth to KCC which is in front of the Auroville Bakery or you can call us for picking them.
Our opening hours: From 9.30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and then 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The Goodbye Plastic Bag team.
