Reviving Traditional Holi Festivities: A Celebration in Harmony with Mother!

With the last whispers of winter fading away, Holi arrives, heralding the splendour of spring. Mother Nature transforms, presenting a canvas rich with blooming flowers and green shoots, inviting us to immerse ourselves in the enchanting tapestry of colours.

A time-honoured celebration deeply rooted in Indian tradition, Holi brings with it an explosion of laughter, vibrant Gulal, and delectable feasts featuring gujias, mathri, malpuas, and the refreshing thandai. However, the essence of this beautiful festival has been somewhat tarnished by the proliferation of synthetic colours and the consumption of unhealthy, preservative-packed foods.

These artificial colours and highly processed foods not only affect our health but also Impact our planet negatively.

So this Holi, we invite you to embrace a more natural and wholesome celebration of Holi, one that respects both our well-being and the health of the planet.

Here are our suggestions for a wholesome, happy and eco-friendly Holi!

Begin your day with ORGANIC INDIA Tulsi Green Tea Honey Lemon Tea.

Each sip marks an auspicious beginning to a day filled with colours and joy.

Colour your world naturally with Organic India Herbal Gulal.

Central to the Holi celebration is the playful exchange of colours. But most commercial gulal colours are made of hazardous chemicals like mercury, asbestos, silica, mica, and lead which are toxic to the human eyes, skin and hair.

Furthermore, our gulal pouches are 100% compostable, ensuring that both the colours and their containers are environmentally safe and seamlessly return to the earth. You can easily compost the gulal pouch by simply cutting it into small pieces in your garden or in potted soil. It will turn into fertilizer for your plant. With no clean-up required, celebrate worry-free, knowing you're protecting the planet.
