Reuse

 

Located in hot and humid Kochi, this green and really cool corner is a lovely space to grab a bite, meet friends, run through your lists or just sip some perfectly chilled water from these sterilized, reusable glass bottles (with cork stoppers!) that the cafe keeps aside just for us thirsty patrons. The label is replaced with a new one every time. A small, simple way to make a reused article look and feel new. Not for sale, sadly. But we like not owning things, but experiencing them, don’t we?

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.

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.

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.

Recycle Sundays: When India sends a parcel via post across the seas or airs, India wraps it in fine used muslins and cottons, stitches up the corners and sometimes even seals it with red wax. The fabric comes from old clothes and bits of tailor-scraps. P.S - When was the last time you sent a parcel of anything to anyone?
