An MLA from Kerala has come up with an extraordinary thought for his daughter's wedding reception which is environment-friendly.
The legislator, V Abdurahiman, thought of printing a 100 per cent recyclable wedding card which likewise consists of natural product, herbs, flowers and vegetable seeds. The idea behind the card was to convey an eco-friendly message to every one of his friends.
According to the leading news portal Indian Express, the cards are handmade, recyclable and also come with instructions on how to use the paper to get its optimum use.
The MLA told a leading daily, “Wedding cards are given out with a lot of love and affection. But people usually burn or dump these cards somewhere. We all do. Coated with several varieties of flower and vegetable seeds. It could be brinjal, ladies finger, tomato or even a marigold flower seed.”
The MLA further said that these cards take a long time to get printed as per the regular paper cards but they are also economical, save the environment, and provide livelihood to many people.
He lastly stated, “I'm sure people wouldn't throw out these cards. Even if they can't plant it themselves, they can always give it to a friend.”
It is very important to protect our environment in this world which is constantly on a spree to damage it. Unwanted use of paper and woods should be avoided. Wedding cards which are made with the use of papers which are obtained from the trees cause a lot of damage. So, we should try to make minimum use of papers.
We have seen many people opting for some environment-friendly cards and also making people aware of the environment which is extremely important.
Bollywood celebs like Anushka Sharma and cricketer Virat Kohli too had distributed the same kind of eco-friendly wedding cards along with a small sapling encouraging people to plant more trees.
We hope everyone learns something from this and inculcate the same ideas in future to save our mother nature from damaging.
