This year, the season of festivities is being kicked off with Raksha Bandhan and like each year, sisters across the country are going to tie Rakhis on their brothers’ wrists as a token of their love and appreciation and as a knot to protect them from all harm and danger. But amidst all this celebration, who is looking after the environment and its well wellbeing?
Making conscious and sustainable changes is how one can start protecting the environment. This can start with the simple switch to eco friendly rakhis instead of your traditional non biodegradable rakhis that are mostly made out of plastic following questionable manufacturing and labour practices. With eco-friendly rakhis, you are keeping up with traditions while contributing positively to the planet.
Make this switch with us by shopping sustainably this Raksha Bandhan. Shop from a variety of green rakhis that vary from plantable rakhis to upcycled rakhis to silver rakhis to artisanal rakhis that are all handmade and crafted with love.
