It will cover Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi-NCR and Kolkata. Through its’ ‘YiPPee! Better World: Create Magic’ endeavour, the brand attempts to raise awareness, educate, collect and upcycle plastic waste by converting it into park equipment like jungle gyms, swings, and so on.  

The playground equipment in city parks will cater to the essential need for recreation, particularly for the children.  This initiative will apart from upcycling plastic waste also drive community involvement.

The plastic waste will be converted into sturdy, colourful playground equipment like jungle gyms and swings. This will also give a second lease of life to plastic materials that are discarded and reduce the plastic in landfills.
