Innovation is said to be the mother of all changes and set the tune for future generations to come. As we are moving towards more complex world we must not forget our roots specially the mother nature. The concrete jungles are taking over the greenery and we are facing a near extinct of nature in coming time.
In such a serious situation recycling is one of the ways to show our concern towards the mother nature. One of the ideas is to reduce, reuse, recycle by creation of sculptures from scrap. With such similar idea Vadodara city based art expert Sachin Kaluskar joined hands with a Indore based artist Deval Verma and launched a brand of sculptures made of scrap materials.
Infine Art Ventures LLP launches “ArtCroc”, the only brand aims to make beautiful usable art from scrap. The products under the brand is fully recycled and made from 100% scrap. The idea is to join engineering with nature and gives a new dimension to the art as well as to save nature.

With waste disposal posing a serious environmental challenge in India, our initiative will also encourage citizens to take concrete actions to ease the situation," said Kaluskar.
The duo launched the brand which is probably the only one where the scrap products get a brand name. They launched their first series “Robots Sculptures Planters” developed and created by Indore based artist Deval Verma, a TedX Speaker.
