Source: DTE

A group of women (under Jyoti Self-Help Group (SHG)) in Himachal Pradesh’s Solan district have found self-sufficiency by utilizing pine needles and leaves abundantly available in their surroundings. The women have been collecting and weaving these materials into various items for the past five years, including cutlery, containers, serving trays, home decor pieces, and jewellery.

Usage: The example can be used in Environment/Disaster Management paper as a way to mitigate the hazards related to forest fires in the Himalayas and at the same time generate income for the local community.
