World Environment Day: Eco-friendly Products From Maker’s With A Conscience

June 5th is World Environment Day. And on this day, at least, do consider looking at some eco-friendly ways in which to preserve the earth’s nurturing environment for the days and generations to come.

If you ask us, every day deserves to be celebrated as World Environment Day – that’s how pressing is the need to be eco-friendly today. And so on World Environment Day, which is coming up on June 5, we urge you to dedicate yourself to at least one of the many ways in which you can help preserve our beautiful and hospitable planet for the days and generations to come by introducing yourself to some thoughtful eco-friendly products our earth-friendly makers have in store for you.

1. RE-BOTTLED:

Transforming a discarded bottle into a work of art that elevates any space it inhabits is a lovely way to reduce waste and make the world a more attractive place. Check out this offering in jute and imagination by Anu Kriti to see what we mean.

2. DICTIONARY REBORN:

Paper dictionaries are not as useful as they used to be. Most end up adding to the mountains of waste that burden the planet. This work of upcycled art from an old dictionary by Unabridged Dictionary Art is an inventive exception. Introduce your world to it.

3. ECOBAG:

Clean Planet is an eco-stylish brand that’s passionate about creating a sustainable, joyous, and equitable world for all. They have a wide range of contemporary and eco-friendly handcrafted products that help you stay stylish and planet-friendly. Take, for instance, this chic bag in conscientious khadi.

4. STEP RESPONSIBLY:

For shoes that are stylish, comfortable, and eco-friendly, step into these loafers from Funky Kalakar. They use recycled and upcycled material to give you something that is eye-catching and eco-conscious. Acquaint yourself with them.

5. BRIGHT IDEA:

Kavi The Poetry Art Project shows us how to make a wine bottle that’s useless and ready to be discarded useful, beautiful, radiant, reincarnated for years to come. Take a look.

6. BORN AGAIN:

The Second Life is a concept and philosophy that drives the creative folks at Studio ABCD. This note book made out of leftover/marginally extra prints at printing presses is a striking example of this eco-friendly way of living.

7. PET PROJECT:

Nothing beautiful can come out of no longer useful PET bottles, right? Ba No Batwo says wrong and shows you how to by weaving colourful threads into discarded PET bottles to give you lightweight, handcrafted, and upcycled jewellery for the contemporary, earth-friendly woman.

 

8. HAVE A BALL:

Hand-stitched with love and upcycled clothes that your child has outgrown, this soft ball has a rattle inside. Brought to you by Pop Goes The Art, it’s a most touching way to preserve the first memories of childhood, while creating new ones for the years to come.
