The necessary Evil
Ban the plastic! It’s not good for the environment.
Yes, we agree.
We at Anuved & Anuspa Herbal Hearts agreed immediately at the first instance. We stopped using plastic and came out with plastic-free packaging. But lo and behold, what happened is that our customers suffered. They got soggy products due to the unruly weather patterns.
We packed our Bio-D laundry powder with the utmost care in a Wax coated paper bag and another paper bag on top but to no avail. We even packed our Anuved herbal soaps in an anti-fungal coated mono carton, But the soap dried out, and the perfume evaporated. We even thought of glass containers as an option, but they are breakable, heavy, and make the product expensive.
Finally, we had to go back to plastic. But we still did not give up our quest to find an environmentally-conscious option. We dug deeper and found that the government has allowed thicker plastic which can be re-used. So this time, we’ve gone for 55- micron plastic pouches to house our precious herbal soaps.
And now the onus is on everyone to collect the used plastic packaging and dispose of it through the proper channels. Many services collect the plastic waste once a month and recycle it. Please Get in touch with your local environmental groups or Google it.
