Nirvaan is a 16 year old boy from India. Growing up in one of the world’s fastest growing and most polluted cities, he became aware of fast fashion’s environmental footprint. This led him to start a movement – “Project Jeans” to save the planet for future generations by reducing fast fashion’s environmental footprint. He collected 6.000 pairs of jeans which would have otherwise ended up in landfills and distributed 850 eco-friendly sleeping bags made from them to persons who are in need.
