3 TOP MOST NATURAL PRODUCTS FOR AN ECO FRIENDLY HOME

 


Awareness on sustainable living is on the raise and people are watchful in their actions too. In the Blogchatter's CAC of Q4, - with the "goal of familiarising  with Eco friendly products" was near completion. Read  the full list here.

In  this blogpost products that can be brought in to make eco friendly homes are discussed below.  The top most natural products made of clay, bamboo & grass are sure to make your  a green place. 

People who are in rented homes, and those who already own their house cannot change the structure or rebuild the house using eco friendly materials. Rather the products that they bring in now onwards can be picked up thoughtfully. Bearing in mind the need to have a lesser carbon foot prints products made of natural raw material can be included more in households.

One such thing is POT FRIDGE instead of regular refrigerators. 

WHY?

The most common type of refrigerant used to be chlorofluorocarbons, more widely known by their acronym CFCs. But after CFCs were found to be depleting the ozone layer, there was a worldwide effort to phased them out.

But the effort to get rid of CFCs resulted in many chemical manufacturers choosing to replace them with two groups of chemicals with a different problem – hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs). These refrigerants break down ozone molecules far less, but are extremely potent greenhouse gases. Their capacity to warm the atmosphere – measured as global warming potential – is thousands of times greater than carbon dioxide. This is because HFCs and HCFCs – along with CFCs – also absorb infrared radiation, trapping heat inside the atmosphere rather than allowing it to escape back into space, creating a greenhouse effect that warms the planet.

To reduce the emission of harmful chemicals, A product made out of clay - the Pot fridge assists and assure to keep vegetables and fruits, milk and curd at his best for four days with zero electricity.

When we trying to use it in our homes, the necessary improvisations can be shared with the manufacturer and a comfortable version of the same can be produced in the near future. 

Bamboo furniture over others.

When you decide to have a make over of your home  or planning to buy new furniture, or switching to eco decor. Think of Bamboo chairs @ Handmakers, this site enabled me to buy the customized bamboo furniture. 

WHY?

  • 1) Environmentally friendly. Compared to solid wood, the bamboo resources are very rich, because it grows very fast, and the growth cycle is very short, fast, and it belongs to a successful planting can be sustainable recycling resources.
  • 2) Safe. 
  • 3) Bamboo Furniture is Light. 
  • 4) Strength
  • Moreover Bamboo furniture is an investment that will retain its beauty and value for many years to come.

 KUS -KUS mats for windows and balconies which works  as  air coolers without electricity .  They are the alternatives for AC  & coolers.

The mats did their work and made us feel cool inside our homes. In Chennai  with the following details we called them and followed by a visit for the accurate measurements , it is delivered on time.-  Its available  through out the year and they deliver to any part of our country.

WHY?

Hang up Khus Khus Mats-vetiver mats or curtains to help cool your home. Sprinkle water on these curtains till they are soaking wet. Leave the windows or doors that it is hung over, open. The draft of hot breeze flowing into the house is cooled by the wet khus curtain.
Khus / Vetiver (in Tamil) Curtains are a native Indian grass which has traditionally been used as a coolant in Indian households. It is mainly used as evaporative mats and screens, the dry air cools as it passes through layers of wet khus.
Khuscurtains are the sustainable solution for cooling the indoor without harming the environment and your body, and without the use of costly energy resources.
As the whole world is searching for green living options and remedy to reduce green gas omission, the products made of natural raw materials is the best available solution.
Choose, buy and encourage eco friendly products and make your home stand as an example.

LET 'S GET TO KNOW THE POWERFUL INFLUENCES ON JOHN KEATS'S POETRY


In one of his happy phrases the poet tells us that " Poetry should please by a fine excess"; and no one could strike the note of "fine excess" more triumphantly. Yet in his most perfect work, in the Odes, La Bella, Dam sans Merci, and that fragment  The Eve of St. Mark, he shows that the pleasure of poetry depends no less on the fine restraint.

With these words, you might have guessed the poet's name about whom we are going to talk about.

Yes, it is none other than the Majestic John Keats. Let's read few lines about the influences of poet's on Keats.  

Among the formative influences in Keats' work , Spenser stands first but Chaucer and Milton influenced only in a secondary degree his poetic style and vocabulary; lesser poets, like Chapman, William brown, and his friend Leigh Hunt, affected him especially in his early work , in his choice of words and phrases, and in his search for colour.

But the finest part of Keats' work owes nothing to a derivative source. In the fragmentary ode to Maia, with its purity of phrase and chastened beauty , there are no echoes, no obligations;

" O, give me their old vigour, and unheard 

         Save of the quiet Primrose, and the span

                Of heaven and few ears  

  Rounded by thee, my song should die away

                Content as theirs,

   Rich in the simple worship of a day."

Perhaps his most notable divergence as a poet, from his contemporary Shelley, is that he elects, as a rule, to deal with sensations rather than ideas, with concrete life than with abstract imagining- Sight and hearing respond to ideas; touch, to sensations.

The meta physical power that charges with intellectual fire the vision of Shelley, is outside of his scope. Not that he eschews ideas, the Odes eloquently refute such  a suggestion ; but when he elects to deal with ideas, he chooses such human things as love, sorrow, life and beauty, and presents them in concrete shape.

" The moving waters at their priest-task

   Of pure ablution round earth's human shores."

" She cannot fade, though thou hast not thy bliss

  For ever wilt though love, and she be fair."

Thus do his ideas, like his memory, become incarnate with the shaping splendor of the consummate Artist; and thus does he help us to realize, as no other poet as done since Shakespeare, the oneness of Truth and Beauty.

IVY LEE'S FORMULA OF TIME MANAGEMENT




WE may not have enough space to write in respect of each day ? Well, let's explain why.

After having failed in all  exercises in time management techniques, legendary millionaire Charles Swab was introduced to consultant Ivy Lee who wrote on the back of an envelope his suggestion 

"PLAN TO DO JUST FOUR THINGS PER DAY" When irate Swab asked him, "What is this?" Lee said, "Try it out for 6 months and then let me know if it doesn't work." It worked.

Swab was mighty pleased and paid Lee $25,000 (huge money in the early 1900s) complimenting him for one of the finest pieces of advice.

Write the four tasks before the previous night. Yes WRITE it in a planner. This is works better even if you are tech -savvy. Write them in the order of priority. You must finish the first one before starting the next. That's an absolute must. Forget this silly thing called multi- tasking.

Stay focussed by visualising the benefit that will flow in when you crack the job; Oh, it's joy when you strike an item off the list upon completion.


Before getting involved in your task Bear these in mind what the great personalities have said:

 1. If you have an urge to build something that could change the world, don't focus on the money, but the legacy you 'll leave behind. - Alexander Tamas

2.  You can't have a better tomorrow if you are thinking about yesterday all the time. - Charles F. Kettering

3. Let us do something while we have the chance. It is not every day that we are needed. - Samuel Beckett.


GET, SET, GO !

Even though they come from the same tree and literally grow off a cluster of bananas, you won't find any fruity banana flavor here—it's a flower, after all. Similar to jackfruit or tofu, the flavor of banana blossoms is neutral, meaning they can take on the taste of however you season them. Many feel that theflavour is quite mild and more similar to artichokes.
Its enormous nutritional and health benefits creates a  potential to be regarded as a functional food or superfood due to its high nutrient content (excellent source of fibre, good source of protein, vitamin A,C and E, minerals like phosphorus, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium and antioxidants) and great therapeutic value .

MUSIC -THE GREAT TOOL TO MIND YOUR MOOD AT ANY TIME




Music is such a source of power that is sure to make us feel happy, relax and to take things in lighter vein. Last week Bestorified  supported the above said thought in an article titled  - "Easy dopamine building activities" in which ENGAGING IN MUSIC was the first activity suggested by them. Read the full article here.

Music is of classical, traditional and modern, all these are functionally equal though their presentations are different and unique in their style.  Learners or students of music find quality of understanding and enjoyment better than the rest of the people.

 Film songs are a part of Music which is easily approachable because of its lyrics and tunes to which all are more exposed. Impact of songs on the listener's are wide known and even science has also proving its enormous benefits. 

Being in South India, our love for Bollywood can be traced back to my father - who is  a great fan of Mohammed Rafi. From our child hood days we are more into listening Bolly wood  songs on gramophone and tape recorders than the regional ones. One of  our uncles landed in Delhi because of his Job and he brought from there many cassettes and record players for my father. Stories of BINACA GEET MALA and VIVD BHARATHI  are still fondly shared by my father with many of our family members and relatives.

Next to Bolly wood is Tolly wood, the songs of NTR &ANR are on the lips and no lyric will be misspelled or missed out by my father in his 80's now. The constant exposure to music and to filmy songs made the next generation also to become the fans of Indian music.

With this, Obviously songs on radio, DVD players, TV,  or mobiles goes on everyday at home. Picking up  just three songs from this ocean of music is a bit difficult task.  Here I list the three best songs from filmy music that uplifts my mood immediately.


1.  zindagi ka saath nibhata chala gaya - Film -HUM DO NO  - HINDI

Here is the song

2.  Pelli Chesikoni - Film - PELLI CHESI CHOODU- TELUGU

 Listen to the song

3.  Vazha Ninaithal Vazhalam - Film - BALAE PANDIYA - TAMIL

HOW TO CELEBRATE YOUR WAY OF LIFE WITH SUSTAINABLE CLOTHING & AN ECO FRIENDLY HOME



"Familiarizing the products for an eco friendly homes" is the goal  of Q4 for Blog Chatter's Cause A Chatter program.  In this connection, My earlier posts brought before my readers the list of  organic productsbio gas for cooking and best storage containers. Almost the prominent features concerning the essential aspect of FOOD is over.

Coming to the immediate requirement after food is CLOTHING without which the humans cannot survive healthily. This blogpost will introduce you to the clothes that are sustainable and in other words eco friendly. With your  intelligent choice of clothes also you can invariably reduce the carbon foot prints and make your home an eco friendly place to live in.

WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE CLOTHING ?

Sustainable clothing refers to fabrics derived from eco-friendly resources, such as sustainably grown fiber crops or recycled materials. Sustainable clothing includes the use of second-hand retail repair and often utilizes upcycling and recycling of clothing. It also refers to how these fabrics are made.

Secondhand clothing, swapping, sharing, clothes, thrifting, and renting fashion are great examples of sustainable fashion. Available in thrift stores and second-hand shops, thrifting is a tremendous way to avoid the negative impact of fashion manufacturing. More about thrifting here
THE URGENT NEED FOR SUSTAINABLE CLOTHING;
The fashion industry has a disastrous impact on the environment. In fact, it is the second largest polluter in the world, just after the oil industry. And, the environmental damage is increasing as the industry grows.
HOW TO TACKLE THIS?
ETHICAL FASHION :
The solution lies in Ethical Fashion in which the clothing is made from eco-friendly materials, such as organic, pesticide-free, non-GMO cotton. — Clothing is safe for people and the environment, avoiding any materials that contain carcinogens, toxins, or other harmful chemicals.
Buying organically coloured clothing can be a terrific, ethical alternative if you're searching for methods to lessen your carbon footprint. Cotton is a natural fibre found in many wardrobe staples such as jeans and t-shirts. Compared to other common clothing fibres such as synthetic polyester, semi-synthetic rayon, and bamboo, cotton has the advantage of being a completely natural product, which means it's biodegradable.  Organic cotton uses 88% less water and 62% less energy than conventional cotton. Not only the material should be of natural fibre , but also the colour should from natural dyes.
NATURAL DYES:
Natural dyes are dyes or colorants derived from plants, invertebrates, or minerals. The majority of natural dyes are vegetable dyes from plant sources—roots, berries, bark, leaves, and wood—and other biological sources such as fungi.
Natural dyes provide several important environmental advantages, including:

1.  They are biodegradable, which means that once you've finished using them, they will naturally disintegrate without releasing any harmful poisons into the land or environment.

2.    They are free of any harmful pollutants. Natural dyes are generated entirely from natural sources like plants and insects, making them non-toxic to anyone who comes into contact with them without releasing hazardous by-products into the environment like conventional colours.

3.     They are hypoallergenic, which means that when skin is exposed to them, they are less likely to produce allergic responses. This is perfect for those who have sensitive skin, such as eczema, as well as new-borns and toddlers.

 In this scenario, a fashion magazine states that “ If eco-friendly fashion ever wants a torchbearer, khadi will be a natural choice. This hand-spun fabric is usually associated with a coarse texture. However, “khadi (or khaddar) can actually refer to any natural fabric (cotton or silk) that has been handspun and handwoven,” -Vogue.

That’s the greatness of KHADI.

 LET'S LOOK INTO KHADI IN DETAIL:

 Khadi (pronounced [kʰaːdiː], Khādī), derived from khaddar, is a hand-spun and woven natural fibre cloth promoted by Mahatma Gandhi as swadeshi (self-sufficiency) for the freedom struggle of the Indian subcontinent, and the term is used throughout India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Indian Khadi clothes can be worn in any weather. It's warm in the winters and cool in the summers. Khadi material is a body-friendly fabric that does not cause any allergies or irritations, unlike other synthetic fabrics. Khadi dyes and weaves are done by hand.

The spinning of khadi uses no machines or energy and thus has a low carbon footprint. A metre of khadi fabric consumes three litres of water, while one metre of mill-produced fabric requires 55 litres of the precious resource. Plus, khadi clusters also generate direly needed income to rural Indian communities.

Khadi when combined with embroidery like chikan, kantha, kashida, ajrakh, block prints, etc. can give rise to festive wear; which is very different from the casual look of Khadi. Hence, Khadi may be incorporated in a variety of occasions in our life from professional to festive, be it our clothing or home décor.

Fashion industry happens to be one of the most waste and pollution generating industries. With the recent effects on the climate, Khadi happens to be the solution to this problem since it is organic and has zero carbon footprint. Besides, with the global temperature rising, Khadi provides a cooling solution both for the producer and the consumer.

This way it is guaranteed  that khadi products are made exclusively from natural raw materials. These include herbal oils, herbal extracts and floral water as well as essential oils and flavors from certified organic farming or wild collection.

WHAT IS WEAVING?

The Egyptians were known for their ability to grow, process and weave linen however it was in India and Peru where they created the first cotton. Mesopotamia produced wool fabrics and China was the first to country to produce silk.

With this a sustainable clothing is being introduced to us by weavers, let see the weaving process. 

Weaving is a method of textile production in which two distinct sets of yarns or threads are interlaced at right angles to form a fabric or cloth. Other methods are knitting, crocheting, felting, and braiding or plaiting

There are approximately 5mn looms in the country. India has 1.8mn shuttle looms which is 45 per cent of world capacity, and 3.90mn handlooms which is 85 per cent of world capacity. Traditional hand-weaving instills pride, provides independence and has the simple ability to bring a community together 

Regions, villages, and communities throughout India have unique weaving traditions with distinct customs and patterns. Depending on the location, textiles may be woven from cotton, wool, or silk. Today, weaving remains important to India's economy with roughly 4.3 million people involved. Woven Fabrics are more durable and less likely to lose their color.

WILL THESE (Woven /Khadi) BE SUITABLE TO EVERYONE ?

Its bit tough to decide. In order to cater to the needs of different tastes and sizes, Many brands are coming up with sustainable clothing to assists their customers to make the shift easily.

Here is a list of online platform that provide sustainable Indian clothing. You can shop from here

For the convenience of the fashion minded people and to make eco- friendly clothing  accessible & affordable to all - Amal Kiran Jana is a designer from India and the founder of Afterlife Project which is a sustainability development project supporting global and unique designers in 360 degrees.

New research reveals that Norway is one of the world's top 10 most sustainable fashion-conscious countries. To be a contributor to save the planet try these:

above all embrace slow fashion, Slow fashion allows communities to develop their circular manufacturing system by cultivating their sustainable fabric, utilising natural colours from local plants, and hand weaving the garments.

With this awareness and simple steps we all can easily bring in the eco friendly fashion into lives and save the planet and share the joy of moving towards eco friendly home.
