Watch the story behind making of the World's largest TShirt broadcasted live on our facebook page www.facebook.com/dayoutwith on January 20, 9:00 AM India Time/ Jan 19 10:30 PM, US EST.
We are proud to nominate Plastindia Foundation as a "Star Organization" for our "Day out with a Star" platform at www.dayoutwithastar.com for an amazing feat of making the largest T-Shirt of size (69.77 metres width x
96.86 metres height) from cloth created out of 100 % recycled plastic waste which equaled 200,000 PET bottles catapulting Plastindia Foundation into the Guinness World Records.
Chandra Kishore, Founder, Indian Environment Network www.paryavaran.com plans to sit with Mr. Atul H. Kanuga, Director of Sudeep Industries and Chairman of the Environmental Committee of Plastindia Foundation to have a virtual cup of coffee and learn about the making of history.
The apex body of the plastics industry in India, Plastindia Foundation took up this initiative to build awareness and educate the masses on the need to manage plastics waste so that it is recycled more efficiently.
The effort which took 45 days for a team of 15 skilled tailors from International Knitwear Company along with 60 casual labours was stitched over two phases partly in Tirupur and then in Bhiwandi, a town near Mumbai in a 100,000 sq feet ware house. It was finally displayed at Goregaon Sports Club, Mumbai where a cricket ground was covered from end to end to lay the T-shirt on the ground.
The Large T-shirt took 3 days and more than 120 people to lay the 2600 kilogramme T-shirt to be laid down for display. The Adjudicator from Guinness used an external surveyor to measure the whole T-shirt using precision electronic instrument to get the exact measurements. The Unique
disbelief that all including the adjudicator had was that a T-shirt of this size was actually a product made of discarded waste which felt nothing but like any other cloth.
The stroy of this amazing feat will be recounted on our facebook page www.facebook.com/dayoutwith by Atul H. Kanuga, Director of Sudeep Industries, who has an experience in the field of Plastics since past 40 yrs. He started his career from Calico Chemicals and Plastic Division as a Marketing Executive, moving on to PRC, Mumbai and eventually establishing his own firm Sudeep Industries. Hence he has been involved in the world of plastics ever since. Please leave your questions for Atul in the comments section.
