In countries like India there is always a scarcity for fresh water along with it polluting the available fresh water sources is a major threat. The major fresh water bodies are affected by eutrophication. It is the phenomenon in which algae forms a layer above the water surface and does not allow the sun light to enter into the water body. Due to this reason organisms which is present in the water body gets affected and the ecosystem gets damaged. The algae which are taken from the water bodies is dropped as waste in garbage or let to dry out on roads. “One man’s waste is other man’s treasure” so instead of wasting the collected algae, the algae can be used to prepare a dye which can be used to dye clothes for different uses. The collected algae are used as a raw material in an algal dying machine where the processes carried out are cleaning, drying the algae, grind it, boil them with water and other essentials, filter the residue and finally filtrate will be used to print on cloth.
