For over 28 years I have been using Rakhi’s which either involved plastic or metal. Not for once did it strike my mind for an alternative which could be nature friendly and beautiful at the same time.
This year was a little different. The awareness towards the earth is ever increasing and so is our responsibility. From my daughter’s first birthday to Rakhi this year, I wanted to make a difference and initiate my contribution. That’s when I came across these pretty eco friendly rakhi’s from Abhika Creations. Trust me, the images do not do justice to the thing of beauty that they are.
The box that I received was carefully paper taped and lined with newspapers. The Rakhi’s were thoughtfully places inside a biodegradable box. It contained a Rakhi, a box paper pack of soil and manure and an instructional card on how to keep them carefully.
Not only did this brand do justice to what they are selling, but they also maintained the budget of the complete kit. They are handmade and made out of clay with seeds imbedded in them. You just have to drop the Rakhi with the soil provided in a planter and wait for the love to grow. You can get it at a price of only 399/-rupees. You can also choose from a variety of different types that they offer.
Let’s pledge our love to our siblings with a promise to our earth.
Until next time
Love and happiness
