It's the time of the year when you should start thinking of a creative idea to celebrate Raksha Bandhan with your brothers. And what's more creative than having a rakhi that your brothers can keep with them forever? No, we aren't talking about safekeeping a rakhi in the cupboard. We are talking about the eco-friendly rakhis whose motive is not to throw but to grow. An eco-friendly rakhi is a unique rakhi that can grow into a plant or a full-blown tree if given proper care and love. Here are some eco-friendly rakhis for your brother to celebrate a memorable Raksha Bandhan.
How can rakhi be a time traveler? It can happen because eco-friendly rakhis come with a unique talent of growing up and turning into a living plant from just a rakhi. Tell him not to throw it once you are done tying an eco-friendly rakhi to your brother. Safeguard the rakhi and put it in a pot full of mud. The eco-friendly rakhi is made with biodegradable paper, decorated with tulsi seeds, and colored with organic colors. The thread is made of natural materials like silk, wool, or satin ribbons. All these things are nature friendly. Apart from that, no other item is used in making the eco-friendly rakhi that can be harmful to the environment, including glitters.
And once your brother puts that rakhi into a flower pot and nurtures it properly, it will start growing into a sapling, and a new plant will bloom. Then how will this plant be a time traveler? This is because whenever you look at it, it will remind you about that particular rakhi day and when your sister gifted you a precious rakhi that can be preserved in the form of a plant and can be kept with you forever. You can sit near the plant with your sister and talk about that rakhi day and how things proceeded afterward. Isn't this a perfect way of time traveling?
Apart from being a beautiful biodegradable rakhi, an eco-friendly rakhi can also be a great gifting option for your brother who lives away from you. You can send rakhi to Delhi, or you can even send rakhi to the US to the brother who will appreciate the idea of a biodegradable rakhi. These eco-friendly rakhis often come in a box. And the box contains additional seeds, a planter, and other essentials that help grow the rakhi into a plant. So, you can plan to gift this fantastic goodie rakhi with chocolates to your distant brother.
While having a new plant at your home in the form of a rakhi is a great idea, putting those rakhi seeds into a planter and growing a plant out of it is not necessary. If you wish to throw the rakhi, there's also no harm. Since these are eco-friendly and biodegradable, rakhi, disposing of them, won't be harmful since they will not pollute the planet further. So, buy your eco-friendly rakhis right now and do a favour to the planet while celebrating Raksha Bandhan with your brothers.
