Did You Know You Could Grow Your Rakhi?

Clay Rakhi

Raksha Bandhan, a festival that celebrates brother-sister love is around the corner and markets across India are filled with colorful and glittering rakhis. The sacred thread of rakhi is a symbol of love that sisters tie around their brother’s wrist. Being a proud sister of a loving and caring brother, I was quite excited about rakhi shopping. After all, I wanted the best rakhi for my brother that grabs his attention and shine on his wrist beautifully. 

But this time, I was looking for something unique that matches with the spirit of my environment-friendly bother. Yes, my brother is a green consumer who swears by organic products and does everything in his capacity to protect the environment. He completely abstains from using plastic and values every drop of water. From his bedroom to the kitchen to the balcony, you will find several plants and he is the one who always shows up to parties with a green gift. He is a vegetarian who prefers to commute to his workplace with bicycle and drink water from the earthen clay pot. He believes that it is his moral responsibility to protect the environment and volunteer for similar campaigns. 

Keeping all these things in mind, I began my rakhi search online. After a few minutes of browsing, I came across Ferns N Petals ad for clay rakhi. It was exactly what I wanted and felt like they read my mind correctly. Ferns N Petals is a famous online gifting website that offers eco-friendly clay rakhis online. The clay rakhi contains seeds in it which can be dissolved into the soil after the occasion gets over. After a few days, the clay base dissolves in the soil and the seeds secured at the edges grow into a green plant. The clay rakhis are creative ways to keep the environment clutter-free and gift your brother something organic that grows over time like your sacred relationship.

Let me share with you some eye-opening benefits of eco-friendly rakhis.

They Are Biodegradable

Only 100% biodegradable materials like clay, terracotta, cotton, and jute, etc. are the prime ingredients of the eco-friendly rakhis. From the thread to the packaging these rakhis come in, everything is made from recycled products.

One Can Plant Them

The eco-friendly rakhis online include plantable seeds. You can directly put them into a pot or planter. It will then grow into green plants with the help of sufficient sunlight, water, and plant food.
