Complying with the GREENABLE theme , Denimsandjeans took up various initiatives during the show to promote the reduction in wastage by taking some small steps. . Saving over 2000 plastic bottles , the team encouraged the use of metallic bottles and some other ways to provide clean water without using bottles. . Moreover, a large number of plastic covers, papers were replaced by the handbands made from recycled fabrics . It was fun to do this while making our small contribution to the cause.
We enjoyed the show thoroughly and we again THANK OUR EXHIBITORS AND VISITORS who kept faith in us after the difficult covid period !
