Manya Harsha, a 10-year-old environmentalist from Bengaluru, Karnataka, has created eco-friendly handmade paper from vegetable waste produced in her house. Growing up in Bengaluru, she has seen how the beautiful Garden City has slowly turned into a heap of garbage. She thus wanted every household to utilise its waste in the right way and came up with the brilliant idea of generating handmade paper. Manya can make two A4-sized sheets of paper from eight to 10 onion peels. The vegetable paper is exactly like other handmade paper—one can write, draw and paint on it or fold it to create paper art.
