With Raksha Bandhan festival round the corner, many Rakhi-makers in the city have come up with the unique and eco-friendly Seed Rakhi.
The current pandemic has made people more conscious of their surroundings and this has resulted in huge demand for eco-friendly products such as Rakhis that are made of naturally-dyed, soft indigenous organic cotton yarn and seeds.
The concept of Seed Rakhis was started by various outlets of organization–Plan A Plant— in Delhi, Haryana and Rajasthan in 2018, and it was picked up by Hyderabad this year. The main motto behind the initiative is to encourage people to plant at least a single plant in their backyards.
After the Raksha Bandhan festival, the seed could be removed from the Rakhi and sown in a pot. And in two to three days, it would germinate and within six to 10 days, a sapling would emerge.
“As these seeds basically are of vegetables, flowers and herbs, the life span of the plants would be six months to one year. Based on design, the price starts from Rs 150.
Hindu festivals and rituals are mostly related to science of protecting the nature, environment, health, preserving biodiversity and also human relations. Seed Rakhi symbolizes the same and also reflects our responsibility in preserving the nature by planting seeds post festival.
