What a lovely way to begin Pii posts after my stay at the yogashram. Here is pure ayurvedic goodness the way Maa and Maa Nature intended it to be. Handmade (looking) paper labels on bottles that are meant to be reused. Meaning, fill it with your besan-sandalwood facewash when you go out of town next. Catch them on FB and visit the site here.

The Altitude Store is an all-organic food boutique that specialises in yummy delicacies (including some really great cheese) from pristine farms situated high up in the hills. Their packaging reflects this natural, pure philosophy. Picture courtesy: Wallpaper.

MSB (My Sunny Balcony) has just come out with these wunnerful mosaic hanging pots that go perfectly well with any home. The mirror bits promise to give your garden a dozen suns.

Undo is a range of t-shirts that tries to undo the mess we’ve made of the planet. The messages, symbols, colours and fabrics all do this. The smart thing? They’ve bundled it all into a cotton jhola. That is immensely reusable. Yay!  Special thanks to Isha of Undo for writing a lovely note to Pii.


Holy Lama Naturals in Auroville create organic bath and beauty products and a range of divine essential oils. Featured here is their kewra soap, packed in dried areca leaf. Simple thing is that it can be used as a soap dish too.

Recycle Sundays: Made entirely from discarded plastic and foil packaging, these ropes are made strong and sturdy by professional rope-makers in Gujrat and marketed by the micro-entrepreneurs of the region. Makes for happy Indian rope beds amongst a hoard of other things.

Via designer & Pii friend, Purvi Sanghvi.

BON (Bio, Organic and Natural) bath and beauty products from Auroville use dried leaves, handmade jute,  butter paper and an endearing line (“Cares the young women”) to make packaging that is just as pure as the handmade, organic goodness it holds inside.

Via designer & Pii friend, Nidhi Berera whose creations you can see at Bangalore’s Kitsch Mandi tomorrow.

Clean Planet is an online eco-store that has totes, gift bags and these neat veggie bags that can go into the fridge and keep your veggies fresh. Their site is a storehouse of green news and tips.

Arrack comes straight from the coconut tree into a pot and then after the tapper climbs down the tree, it’s carefully poured into old bottles and taken straight to the toddy shops where it goes straight to someone’s head.


Recycle Sundays: Till a tree is strong enough to grow by itself in the big bad ground, give an old carton something to feel good about. Thought up by Vinod Lal Heera Eshwer.
