Welcome to Paryavaran Mitra
Paryavaran Mitra is a humble endeavor to uplift the rag-picking women of our country in a holistic manner while focusing on their dignity and respect. Rag-pickers, mostly women, collect recyclable waste from the streets and dump sites and sell it for their daily wages. As these women play an integral role in waste management and recycling, they provide a silent but essential service to both society and the environment. For this reason, with great respect, we call them as Paryavaran Mitra or Friends of the Environment.
