With Ganesh Chaturthi just around the corner, our sellers have dived into the spirit of festivity and have begun creating innovative products even as they keep an eye on the environment.
From terracotta idols to unique Ganpati imprinted frames and more, this is how sellers are going green even as they help customers celebrate the upcoming festivities with the same joy and excitement.
Surprise Someone by Pinky Maheshwari
Surprise Someone is led by a mother-daughter duo that maintains a family tradition to reuse paper and create it out of means that would not harm the environment. Pinky Maheshwari, along with her mother Sharda Daga, wanted to make gifting special by utilising small handicrafts around her.
Surprise Someone drives and delivers eco-friendly products to its customers no matter the occasion
“More often than not, people buy gifts or products and discard them after a certain amount of time”, says Maheshwari. “While that is definitely a choice a customer can take, why make the process of discarding harmful for the environment? Surprise Someone drives and delivers eco-friendly products to its customers no matter the occasion. For Ganesh Chaturthi, we have a photo frame with a small picture of Lord Ganesha in between. If you look closely, there is a seed in the middle of the frame that you can plant and grow into a sapling.”
She also believes that creating sustainable products and services is the future of festive offerings in India. While some brands are already there in this space, it won’t be too long before others join the bandwagon. You can purchase this unique Ganpati photo frame from Surprise Someone that is made entirely of recycled paper.
Nirvi Handikrafts by Aatish K
Nirvi Handikrafts, founded by Aatish K., celebrates the spirit of going eco-friendly by using clay as their main resource for creating beautiful idols. The brand is based out of Kolhapur where the gift of creativity and imagination runs through its people.
Every product is handmade from scratch with the option of leaving raw or empty idols to offer customers to bring out their creativity. “We create designs based on different occasions and also take customised orders”, says Aatish.
Nirvi Handikrafts has been selling a diverse range of art and craft pieces since 2013, all manufactured by local artisans. They believe keeping handmade idols or showpieces at home or office is a great way to show the traditionality of the Indian culture.
We are happy to witness the acceptance towards adopting eco-friendly means to celebrate both small and big occasions.
“The sustainable culture is not new to India but has been prevalent for many years. While western products made out of environmentally harmful materials are easy to procure, we are gradually witnessing the shift to sustainable ingredients”, says Aatish. “Even for festivities, our consumers are not discarding idols and pictures once they are over. We are happy to witness the acceptance towards adopting eco-friendly means to celebrate both small and big occasions.”
