About the Practice
Problem Statement:

reduces the generation of plastic wastes and also makes it easier for children to walk through dark terrain with no electricity.


‘Jugnu’ is a low-cost solar bags made from plastic waste specially designed for kids who live in the non-electrified regions such as village and hilly areas. School kids are finding it difficult to travel on hilly rock terrain on high altitude consuming a lot of time. The kids have no other way but to take dangerous roads with steep curves and narrow lanes. So, the innovator came up with a brilliant idea of ‘solar bag concept’ in a bid to make the lives of kids simpler. Solar bags are a well-crafted modular design where light can be detached and can be used elsewhere.
