Raksha Bandhan is an age-old tradition celebrating the pure love of a brother and a sister. The string tied on the wrist represents the strong bond of love, respect, and protection from the evil eye. This season of Rakhi marks the beginning of the festivities and one idea which is rhyming with the onset of festival time is of going green.
Raksha Bandhan is soon catching up with this trend of going eco-friendly with the launch of eco-friendly rakhis all over. If Pollution, Plastic Waste, Green House Emissions, and Global Warming shake you to the core then this content is certainly for you.
Here’s your pick to celebrate an Eco-Friendly Rakhi by a unique Rakhi Hamper curated specially for brothers and sisters by Surprise Someone. Pinky Maheswari and her mother Sharada Daga started in September 2015 and since inception, there has been no looking back for them.
With eco-friendly in mind, they made recycled handmade paper via their venture which didn’t involve cutting trees. Their paper was made by cotton rags. Completely bio-degradable they also plant seeds in the paper so that when it is trashed it can take birth in the form of saplings.
With similar concept, they have come up with Eco-Friendly Rakhi which is made of seed-embedded handmade paper with organic seeds again fit in the Rakhi as well. Once the festivities are over all that has to be done is to plant this Rakhi in a pot which is also environment-friendly and given by them along with soil again given by them to allow germination and blooming.
Each plantable Rakhi is hand made by some super talented rural women from the rudimentary parts of India. The thought behind this is to empower such women and change their lives for good. Along with the love and blessings of your family, you are sure to receive love and blessings from these women and of course Mother Earth!
The rakhi kit contains a Card, Rakhi, Soil, Pen, Notepad, and Instruction manual. Not a single tree was cut to make this kit and that is the most beautiful part of this product. The kit is really handy, apt for kids and planting the Rakhi to grow into a plant is actually a cool DIY project for kids and adults alike.
So, what are you waiting for? Order your hamper today and enjoy an Eco-Friendly Rakhi Festival this season! Kudos Pinky on this wonderful initiative. May you come up with more such innovative products in the future. Going Eco-Friendly is absolutely the need of the hour!
