Have you ever thought what are your rakhis made
up of? Most conventional rakhis are made using plastic beads and small glittery
embellishments on cotton or synthetic threads. Once discarded, these rakhis
find way to dumping grounds, soil and water.
The tiny plastic decoratives will not decompose but
eventually breakdown into smaller #microplastics
Thus we propose these beautiful bamboo rakhis handmade using
locally grown bamboo and cotton threads by folks in rural Maharashtra. When you
wish to dispose it, simply bury it under soil. It will take long but will
surely decompose and nourish the soil.
Check out the bamboo rakhis that support more than
100 Burad families and 25 families of the Thoti tribe in Chandrapur,
Maharashtra. These rakhis are made using bamboo and cotton threads.
