Today’s Eco Friendly Business Idea: 

Clay pottery

Eco friendly Business Ideas- Part 2.  Stepping towards Greener Earth. Here is a series of posts with new and Eco friendly business ideas which also reduces our plastic footprint.

Pottery is the process of forming vessels and other objects with clay and other ceramic materials, which are fired at high temperatures to give them a hard, durable form. Major types include earthenware, stoneware and porcelain. The places where such wares are made by a potter is also called a pottery . Clay-based pottery can be divided into three main groups: earthenware, stoneware and porcelain. These require increasingly more specific clay material, and increasingly higher firing temperatures. All three are made in glazed and unglazed varieties, for different purposes. All may also be decorated by various techniques. In many examples the group a piece belongs to is immediately visually apparent, but this is not always the case.

Eco friendly Business Ideas- Part 2. Greener Earth.

Benefits of cooking in clay pots: You can have a look at this post by Smita Diwan to have an idea about the benefits of cooking in clay pots.

Ancient Cookware How to Cure an Indian Clay Pot: Have a look at this video, if you are new at using clay pots in your kitchen. This is also helpful if you are planning to switch to claypots.

With the changing times, clay utensils are back. There is an increase in demand in all sectors of the market. People have already started working on this sector. Small groups, entrepreneurs have started looking forward to this as a promising career.

पर्यावरण अनुकूल बिज़नेस आइडिया- पार्ट 1 एक कदम।

पर्यावरण अनुकूल बिज़नेस आइडिया- पार्ट 1. हरित धरा की ओर  एक कदम। यहां नए और पर्यावरण के अनुकूल व्यापारिक विचारों के साथ पोस्ट की एक श्रृंखला है जो हमारे प्लास्टिक फुट-प्रिंट को भी कम करती है। आप शायद जानते हैं कि प्लास्टिक हमारे पर्यावरण को कितना प्रभावित कर रहा है।

अब हमें अपने स्तर पर स्तर से कुछ प्रयास करने का समय है। अपनी आदतों और जीवन शैली को बदलने के अलावा, हमें उन तरीकों की भी तलाश करनी होगी जिनके द्वारा हम बड़े पैमाने पर प्लास्टिक के उपयोग को नियंत्रित कर सकते हैं।

पोस्ट की इस श्रृंखला में कुछ विचार हैं जिन्हें आप एक स्टार्टअप के रूप में उपयोग कर सकते हैं। यदि वर्तमान में आपका व्यवसाय प्लास्टिक से संबंधित है और आप इसके लिए दोषी महसूस करते हैं या अपने व्यवसाय के भविष्य की चिंता कर रहे हैं, तो पर्यावरण अनुकूल बिज़नेस आइडिया की यह श्रृंखला आपके बहुत काम आएगी।

इस तरह के व्यवसाय को हर शहर, गांव या कस्बे में शुरू किया जा सकता है।

तो आइए हम उन कुछ प्रयासों पर ध्यान दें जो लोग विभिन्न कोनों में कर रहे हैं।

वे प्लास्टिक के उपयोग को कम करने के साथ-साथ जागरूकता फैलाने के लिए ऐसा कर रहे हैं।

और जिस तरह आज लोग इको फ्रेंडली विकल्पों को प्राथमिकता दे रहे हैं, इन व्यवसायों को बढ़त मिलेगी।

इनमें से कई विचार नए और सक्षम हैं। जब भी आप पानी खरीदने के लिए ललचाएँ, एक  डिस्पोजल कप लें या कपड़े धोने का तरल डिटर्जेंट खरीदें, पड़े हुए कचरे के ढेर के बारे में सोचें।

नोट: ये बदलाव बाजार की जरूरत भी हैं। 

पर्यावरण अनुकूल बिज़नेस आइडिया- पार्ट 1. आज का बेस्ट बिजनेस आइडिया: 

कुल्हार:

सिंधु घाटी सभ्यता के बाद से कुल्हड़ पिछले 5,000 वर्षों से इस क्षेत्र में उपयोग में आ रहे हैं।

एक कुल्हड़ (हिंदुस्तानी: कुल्हड़ या ہڑلul), जिसे कभी-कभी शिकोरा भी कहा जाता है, उत्तर भारत और पाकिस्तान का एक पारंपरिक कप है, जो आमतौर पर पेंट या पॉलिश नहीं किया जाता है, और डिस्पोजेबल होता है।

कुल्हार का पेंट ना होना भी इसे टेरा-कोट्टा कप से अलग  करता है।

चूँकि कुल्हड़ एक भट्ठे में बनाए जाते हैं और लगभग कभी भी पुन: उपयोग नहीं किए जाते हैं, वे स्वाभाविक रूप से स्वच्छ हैं।

भारतीय उपमहाद्वीप में बाज़ारों और भोजन के स्टालों ने पारंपरिक रूप से गर्म पेय, जैसे कि चाय, कुहलारों में परोसे जाते थे

इसकी “मिट्टी की सुगंध” को अक्सर आकर्षक माना जाता था।

दही, चीनी के साथ गर्म दूध और कुछ क्षेत्रीय मिठाइयां, जैसे कुल्फी (पारंपरिक आइसक्रीम) भी कुल्हड़ में परोसे जाते हैं।

चूँकि कुल्हड़ का निर्माण छोटे ग्रामीण भट्टों द्वारा किया जाता है, इसलिए इससे ग्रामीण रोज़गार बढ़ाने में मदद मिलेगी।

आज का इको फ्रेंडली बिजनेस आइडिया: इसे फिर से करें, इसे एक व्यापार विचार के रूप में लें।

इसे स्थानीय रूप से उत्पादित करें, एक आपूर्ति श्रृंखला बनाएं या ऑनलाइन बाजार मैं बेचे यह पूरी तरह आप पर निर्भर है।

बस इसे करें क्योंकि यह भविष्य है। इससे निश्चित रूप से ग्रामीण सशक्त होंगे।

आइए पृथ्वी और उस पर रहने वाले लोगों के लिए दयालु बनें।

स्टार्ट अप के लिए शुभकामनाएँ।

भविष्य में आपको देखने के लिए  हम उत्सुक हैं।

Note: These changes are the need of the market too. Here we go:

Eco friendly Business Ideas- Part 1: 

Kulhar:

Kulhars may have been in use in the region for the past 5,000 years, since the Indus Valley Civilization. A kulhar (Hindustani: कुल्हड़ or کلہڑ) or kulhad, is also known as shikora. Shikora is a traditional handle-less clay cup from North India and Pakistan that is typically unpainted and unglazed, and meant to be disposable.

The most interesting feature of kulhar is not being painted and that differentiates a kulhar from a terra-cotta cup. The kulhar cup is unglazed inside out. Since kulhars are made by firing in a kiln and are almost never reused, they are inherently sterile and hygienic.

Bazaars and food stalls in the Indian subcontinent traditionally served hot beverages, such as tea, in kuhlars, which suffused the beverage with an “earthy aroma” that was often considered appealing. Yoghurt, hot milk with sugar as well as some regional desserts, such as kulfi (traditional ice-cream), are also served in kulhars. Since kulhars are manufactured by small rural kilns, this would assist in boosting rural employment. 

Kulhars, Own it.

Do this again, take it as a business idea. Produce it locally, make it a supply chain or explore the online market that is all up to you. Just do it because it is future. This will surely boost rural employment. You can also group people together and become their investor.

Let’s be kind to Earth and the people living on it. 

All the best for a startup. Looking forward to seeing you in future. If this article was of any help to you, please respond in the comment box.

Let’s be counted in that 1%. #noplasticnavratri

What You Can Do to End Plastic Pollution

Reduce

Reduce your own plastic waste. Start by tracking how much you use — then you can take steps to reduce your use and waste.

Let’s be counted

Reuse

Bring your own reusable shopping and produce bags to markets, and avoid using single-use plastic bags.

Bring your own reusable coffee cup when going out to get beverages.

Like sipping through straws? Get a reusable stainless steel, glass, or bamboo one to use instead of wasteful plastic ones.

Instead of buying water in plastic bottles, invest in a water filter and reusable water bottle(s). Bonus: it’s cheaper in the long run.

Make your own reusable cloth bags from old t-shirts, using basic sewing skills (or no sewing at all).

Let’s be counted

Choose clothing and other personal items made from earth-friendly materials instead of microfibers and other synthetic fibers, which pollute our water. (Even more ways to green your style.)

Bring a reusable container to a restaurant with you when you expect to have leftovers.

Let’s be counted

Refuse

*Refuse straws: It’s as simple as adding, “No straw, please” when requesting beverages at restaurants or cafes.

Refuse beverage tops. (Are you really going to spill?)

Let’s be counted

Remove

Pick up trash in your neighborhood and when visiting parks and beaches.

Let’s be counted

Recycle

Recycle the plastics you use and no longer need.

Return single-use bags to grocery stores for them to recycle.

Protect Restore Fund – Act Now

Protect Restore Fund – Act Now.

It is still not too late to act. It will take a far-reaching vision, it will take courage, it will take fierce, fierce determination to act now, to lay the foundations where we may not know all the details about how to shape the ceiling. In other words, it will take cathedral thinking. –Greta Thunberg

Protect. Restore. Fund.
Climate activists Greta Thunberg and George Monbiot talk about solutions to the problem of anthropogenic global warming:

a combination of leaving fossil fuels in the ground and protecting and restoring living ecosystems like

forests, mangroves, swamps and seabeds that can pull enormous quantities of carbon from the air and store them safely, naturally.

Current government subsidies around the world enhance the use of fossil fuel.

Thunberg and Monbiot advocate for the increase in funding for natural climate solutions so that we can protect and restore the environment for future generations to come.

Thunberg and Monbiot, walk their talk. Likewise, this film was made with the smallest environmental impact possible.

“We took trains to Sweden to interview Greta, charged our hybrid car at Georges house, used green energy to power the edit and recycled archive footage rather than shooting new,”

Tom Mustill of Gripping Films.

Everything we do counts. What will you do?

Protect Restore Fund

Greta Thunberg FRSGS (born 3 January 2003) is a Swedish teenage environmental activist on climate change whose campaigning has gained international recognition.

Thunberg first became known for her activism in August 2018 when, at age 15, she began spending her school days outside the Swedish parliament to call for stronger action on global warming by holding up a sign saying (in Swedish) “School strike for climate”.

Soon, other students engaged in similar protests in their own communities. Together, they organised a school climate strike movement under the name Fridays for Future.

After Thunberg addressed the 2018 United Nations Climate Change Conference, student strikes took place every week somewhere in the world.

In 2019, there were at least two coordinated multi-city protests involving over one million students each.

Thunberg is known for her blunt, straightforward speaking manner, both in public and to political leaders and assemblies,

in which she urges immediate action to address what she describes as the climate crisis.

Protect Restore Fund

At home, Thunberg convinced her parents to adopt several lifestyle choices to reduce their own carbon footprint,

including giving up air travel and not eating meat.

Her sudden rise to world fame has made her a leader and a target. In May 2019, Thunberg was featured on the cover of Time magazine, which named her a “next generation leader”

and noted that many see her as a role model.

 Thunberg and the school strike movement were also featured in a 30-minute Vice documentary titled Make the World Greta Again. Some media have described her impact on the world stage as the “Greta Thunberg effect”.

Protect Restore Fund

Thunberg has been the recipient of numerous honours and awards, including fellowship of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society, has been named as one of the 100 most influential people of 2019 by Time magazine.

Thunberg was nominated for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize which was ultimately awarded to Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali. In September 2019, she addressed the UN Climate Action Summit in New York.

Worth watching, worth acting. Time is now.

Worth watching, worth acting. Time is now. Plastic debris represents a chemical pollution in several ways.

They contain compounds that can be chemically transferred to organisms during ingestion.

Some of these molecules are potentially toxic and can accumulate in the body.

Besides, plastic bags also affect the growth of crops, by hindering the process of photosynthesis in agricultural fields.

Besides, plastic bags also affect the growth of crops, by hindering the process of photosynthesis in agricultural fields.

Plastic pollution is caused by the accumulation of plastic waste in the environment.

Worth watching, worth acting. Time is now.

It can be categorized in primary plastics, such as cigarette butts and bottle caps, or secondary plastics, resulting from the degradation of the primary ones.

It can also be defined by its size, from microplastics – small particles (<5 mm) of plastic dispersed in the environment – to macroplastics.

Worth watching, worth acting. Time is now.

Plastic pollution can take different forms including:


The accumulation of waste

Accumulation of marine litter, fragments or micro particles of plastics and non-biodegradable fishing nets, which continue to trap wildlife and waste

Waste causing the death of animals by ingestion of plastic objects

Arrival of micro plastics and micro beads of plastics from cosmetic and body care products

What are the causes of plastic pollution?

Negligence is the main cause. In fact, it is estimated that 80% of marine litter comes from land.

Worth watching, worth acting. Time is now.

This pollution comes mainly from household waste, which is poorly recycled, dumped in landfills or abandoned in nature.

This waste is carried by the winds, pushed by the rains into sewers, streams, rivers, and finally in the oceans.

Natural disasters like floods are considered as other causes of plastic pollution.

Live life with less plastic.

Less Plastic Lifestyle-achieve easily.

Less Plastic Lifestyle. Changes we make in our daily lives and habits. Plastic is practically present in every part of our lives. There are so many simple ways to use less plastic when we take a moment to stop to question whether it is really needed?

Individuals have ample power through the choices they make as consumers. 

We can demand for less plastic products and packaging through our purchasing choices. *We can do this by talking to others about the reasons why we buy products with less plastic. We can make people participate in different big and small initiatives to solve the problem.

 So, what changes we make in our daily lives and habits to reduce our contribution to wide scale plastic pollution. 

Question yourself- “Can I live without them? Or discover alternatives, that supports or use less plastic instead. For example, 

  1. you could switch plastic sauce bottles for glass ones.
  2. Instead of using cling film to keep leftover food fresh, put it in a container or bowl or old tiffin in the fridge. There is really no need to use plastic cling film, apart from habit.
  3. Avoid excessive food packaging: Local market, greengrocers and supermarkets offer loose fruits and vegetables.
  4. Choose unpackaged options wherever possible to cut your plastic use. Buying with this habit reduces food waste as you can buy what you need rather than the pre-packaged amount. It’s often pocket friendly also. 
  5. Swap disposable for reusable: Whenever you are going to a coffee shop or take away joint, try to carry a reusable cup with you. Otherwise invest some time and demand for a ceramic cup for serving. Relax and enjoy your coffee there. 
  6. If you know that you will be needing water, when you are out, take water in a reusable bottle from home. 
  7. While you are out shopping, carry your own bag. Request the counter, you don’t even need their fancy bags with their name on that, because practically you will not use it again. 
  8. Try plastic free cleaning. White vinegar diluted one part with three parts warm water makes a cheap, effective natural surface cleaner. Avoid the need to purchase plastic cleaning bottles. But, please buy vinegar that comes in glass bottles.
  9. Say no to plastic straws: When you are going for a drink/ refreshing juice refuse plastic straws. Even for kid’s party look for plastic free alternatives. 
  10. Stop buying balloons now onwards. They are really very hard to decompose. 

Less Plastic Lifestyle

Don’t throw the reusable plastic items that you own presently. Just avoid buying new plastic things, if there are eco friendly options available.

Follow these simple ways, to start contributing towards cleaner Earth.
