The Yamuna river, often called Delhi’s lifeline, is gasping for life. The 22-km stretch along the national capital has virtually no aquatic life - thanks to over 20 drains that pour untreated sewage and mountains of plastic waste that is dumped into the river.
The Clean Yamuna Campaign is going to be first of its kind initiative. It is open for all event to train the local community of rag-pickers and farmers, citizens and interested parties to upcycle traditionally non-recyclable plastic waste into our patented fabric “Handmade Recycled Fabric” from which items like apparel, bags, footwear etc., can be crafted.

In our pilot project, we successfully set up a Clever Bud system at a school in New Delhi. PokerBaazi endeavours to set up more sustainable food security systems across India. Have a look at the following video to see how it all came up.
Clever Bud, Conserve India has developed systems that can produce high nutrition food in low fertility areas to produce high yield. Their focus on helping marginalized communities falls in sync with our cause to help children. We, at PokerBaazi.com believe that the only way to live responsibly is to help cater to a future where the children of today are safe tomorrow. We would like to do our bit to help these children to have a right to healthy food and a right to a healthy life. We urge you to join us in this cause and together, we are sure we can create an impact that would positively influence the lives of thousands of impoverished children and help them to atleast have a chance at life.
Conserve India (CI) is a non-profit organization aimed towards sustainable development. It was established in 1998 and since has worked on several projects including energy efficiency, solid waste management, pollution control and recycling. Conserve’s hallmark project- Handmade recycled plastic, developed a new technology to use waste plastic as a resource. Conserve India trained slum dwellers to use waste from landfills and turn them into fashion. Till now, they have managed to upcycle 5000 tonnes of plastic. This has enabled over a 100 slum dwellers to live lives of dignity. These up-cycled products have been bought by several major brands like Habitat, Anthropologie, Adolfo Domonigue, Oxfam etc.
PokerBaazi wants to support Conserve India’s new mission- "Fighting Against Malnutrition". Conserve India has produced Clever Bud systems. Clever Bud has a focus to empower marginalised communities by enabling them to grow high nutrition food in wastelands. Food security has become a global challenge and Clever Bud has ingeniously come up with a way to combat it.
Clever Bud Systems provide a comprehensive sustainable business solution in building automated polyhouses, which use advanced agronomic practices that maximise crop production and profitability throughout the year.
