We all know the benefits of using earthen pots or utensils in our daily lives. But do you know that there are so many other ways how we can use them, the best would be to replace all the plastic at home with the stuff made of this pure material. Earthen pots are recyclable and they dont do any harm to the environment. Once you discard them they go back to the roots without polluting the nature. And yes you will have to be a little cautious while using them as they can break easily, but then they are easy to replace as these products are not expensive, plus a little effort for a better future is what we need to start doing as soon as possible.
Stationary holders– Instead of using the plastic holders use earthen vessels for stationary. To make it more interesting you can choose these products in different shapes and give them as a craft project to your kids in which they can paint and beautify it according to their liking. They will love it and side by side you can teach them the importance or replacing the plastic with these beautiful things. You can also paint them with chalkboard paint and write specified names on them. Likewise you can also store many things like makeup brushes, kitchen stuff etc.
Indoor plants– These pots are easily available online and are perfect to grow indoor plants. The regular plastic pot is not something which your plant will love to be in, as plastic doesn’t absorbs the extra moisture of the soil and therefore effects the overall health and longevity of the plant. Whereas an earthen pot absorbs the excess moisture and keeps the plant healthy.
Tea set– We all are well familiar with the ‘Kulhar wali chai’ which we dig into as soon as we see in the restaurant menu. So why not bring the same experience and taste to home by using these special cups. They are available in different style and shapes and you can also purchase the cup and saucer version for a modern take.
Home decor– Earthen or terracotta products are great to use as home decor pieces. They are done in interesting color combinations and motifs and give a fresh life to the living room.
