After Rana Plaza tragedy in Bangladesh, Maria's film production company appointed from ActionAid to make documentary as a tribute to the victims of Rana Plaza. The goal was to create international awareness for what is going on behind the made in Bangladesh label clothes. When Maria went through the shooting material she discovered another perspective, broader than the unalterable tragedy, which had cost the life of thousands innocent workers. She envisioned an initiative that could absorb the socio - environmental disturbances in the country instead of just punishing and discrediting the entire garment industry, which is the backbone of the economy in Bangladesh. She came up with CEMBA, which is the abbreviation of Circular Economy in Made in Bangladesh Apparels. CEMBA’s primary goal is to implement circular economy and utilizing as such the garment waste of the industry in order to produce products for covering the humanitarian needs of refugees.
