His latest project promotes how we can make “eco-bricks” and eliminate plastic waste from entering the waterways. Ramesh, particularly heralded in his homeland of India, has begun this project as a movement to impact those areas of the world where the conservation of water is especially important and to encourage a lifestyle of environmental consciousness.
