‘Organic’ is in at a time when there is universal advocacy of eco-friendly products, and the Indian market too is responding with a range of things that promise a greener, healthier life. Starting from organic seeds to organic spices, eco-friendly bags and purses to plants and natural perfumes, the market offers a wide spectrum of options for anyone who is looking for an alternative lifestyle. Organic food is grown without the use of non-organic fertilisers, pesticides, insecticides and herbicides. So the end-product is free of non-organic chemicals and does no harm to the body. Organic food is often more expensive than processed food readily available in the market, but Goburdhun said: “When you look at the harm these chemicals do to your body, you will realise that it is better to spend money on these products than visit your doctor.” With the Delhi government joining some other states to ban plastic bags, jute bags have a chance to become an integral part of one’s fashion statement. Apart from bags, The Jute Shop also manufactures table mats, coasters, cushion covers, curtains, door-mats, belts and slippers made of jute. Another way of going green in our daily lives is to promote household plants. Pallavi Jain of online portal offers indoor plants arranged in chic, contemporary pots as gift options. “Plants make charming home decor pieces, and add a touch of serenity to the interiors. Unlike flowers, they last long, thus making very thoughtful gifts,” she said. For those who love fragrances, opting for Ittar is a natural choice, though the product is expensive. “Natural perfumes are very popular but not everyone can afford it because a five-millilitre Motia (jasmine) extract is priced at Rs.600,” said an official of Gulabsingh Johrimal, manufacturers and exporters of natural perfumes, essential oils, rose water and incense sticks since 1816.
