These bamboo bottles are aesthetically pleasing and are taking the internet by storm! Originated in Assam, these bottles are made up of bamboo which helps the water remain cool. Unlike plastic bottles, which not only harm the environment and become a source of pollution, these bottles are eco-friendly and biodegradable. Not to mention how plastic bottles are detrimental to us and our well being, these bamboo bottles are packed up with antibacterial properties and thus becoming a perfect alternative to plastic bottles. These bottles are filled with natural flavonoids, thus, acting as natural antioxidants. They help our skin fight pollution, reduce wrinkles and have anti-aging properties. Apart from that, bamboo bottles also help us fight stress.
Warli painting is a tribal art form originating from the North Sahyadri Range in Maharashtra. It is an incredible example of folk art. The warli tribe was one of the largest in India and was located just outside of Mumbai. The focal point of the Warli tribe is mother nature and different elements of nature which are offered to us. These paintings make use of simple geometric shapes representing different aspects of nature. The circle denotes the sun and the moon. Meanwhile, the triangles denote the mountains and pointed trees. The Warli painting also denotes the Tarpa dance. Tarpa is a musical instrument that different men take turns playing. People pair up, intertwine their hands and circle up around the Tarpa player. These paintings are used to illustrate daily life activities such as fishing, hunting and more. It is interesting how they use simple shapes to create such a mind blowing painting.
When it comes to shopping backpacks, there are these three factors that you must always keep in mind. Firstly, they should be durable. And, second and third factors include reliability and practicality. All the three things that you can expect Hemp Backpacks to live upto! Hemp backpacks are the backpacks made from natural fibres from the plant hemp, which is known to be the strongest natural fibre among the plants. This makes them unbelievably durable! Hemp containing antibacterial properties keeps our bag hygienic and fresh. Not to forget that the hemp backpacks have astonishing water resistance power. So, you can always count on them.
Also, cotton tote bags are not as environmentally friendly as you consider them to be. A recent study by the UK government reveals that tote bags, although recyclable, are still harming our environment significantly. If we are being awfully honest, Tote Bags have created a whole new issue! It has been found out that a single cotton tote bag has to be used 20,000 times which means using it daily for 54 years! This is because the environmental cost of producing these bags is astonishingly high and it outweighs the benefits.
Hemp Backpack comes to rescue here. It also helps reduce global warming by absorbing the CO2 which is present around. Hemp absorbs more CO2 than any other plants, thus making hemp backpacks really environment friendly. Hence, these backpacks are always a win-win!
