Nature has given us all that we want for a perfect and solid living. In any case, for the sake of world class and comfortable living, we began moving towards tastefully engaging items which, at the end, were harmful for us and for our environment. Our home and body cleaners is one such product offering.
Did you had any idea that natural cleaners are accessible for each kind of utilization?
Soapnut Detergents for garments, bioenzyme based arrangements as floor cleaners and latrine cleaners, soapnut/shikakai powders for dishwashing, etc…
So what are natural cleaners?
Natural cleaners are cleaners made exclusively from ingredients found in nature. Sounds unimaginable right? But its true. Ingredients like shikakai, soapnuts, citrus peels and natural essential oils like peppermint and neem oils are effective cleaners and sanitisers for a normal home. Shikakai and soapnuts have normal saponins that are hypoallergenic and are normally antibacterial and antifungal. The release water after washing with soapnuts is additionally climate agreeable and in no way hurts the streams.
How to make normal cleaners at home?
Soapnut and shikakai washing fluids are made by first soaking them for 6 to 8 hoursin lukewarm water. They become soft and then are to be squeezed by hand to make a pulp. Bioenzymes produced using citrus peels can be added to this liquid to upgrade viability and to lengthen time span of usability of these items. Bioenzyme is a fermented solution of jaggery, citrus peels and water blended in the proportion of 1:3:10. Bioenzymes are exceptionally simple to make. Simply blend the ingredients in the proportion as referenced in an air tight container. Open the lid two or three times each day for the initial 10 days to let out the gas development. After that you can leave it as it is for about 3 months and you will get a fragrant viable cleaniner. A couple of drops of essential oils like neem oil and peppermint oils in it will furthermore assist with repulsing bugs and mosquitoes.
Is it true that they are as effective as chemical cleaners?
The chemical cleaners truly do leave your space spotless quickly, while a natural cleaner could take somewhat longer to get a comparative impact. What we want to consider here isn’t simply the cleaning effect but also the delayed consequences of it. Cleaning your living region by polluting your surroundings doesn’t exactly fit in as healthy cleaning. The poisonous results let out in the streams and air find their direction back to us again some way or another. A decent cleaning system is where natural cleaners are used fairly in your home and also protect your current circumstances as well. Chemical cleaners can be utilized just when totally essential.

Gayatri, an IT professional passed on her comfortable task to begin ecoSansar , based out of Bangalore.
Our lives in the last couple of months have taken a strange turn. We’ve gone from FOMO (fear of missing out) to FOGO (fear of going out). With restrictions, we aren’t able to take our own shopping bags to stores anymore. With contactless deliveries, we have an increased pile-up of bags and cartons.
If you were someone who was trying to help the environment before and attempt a zero waste living, this definitely became really tough, almost impossible over the last two months.
Here at ecoSansar, we have been working to build this unique eCommerce platform with reverse logistics. As we launch in these uncertain times we want you to know that we are as committed to your health and wellbeing as we are to the environment.
Through this pandemic we are seeing the flaws of many systems. What better time than to push towards a more resilient way of life that is both beneficial for us and the planet.
We have temporarily stopped customer walk-ins at the store to reduce the probabilities of contamination. We instead will be delivering to your doorstep.
This would mean extended delivery times, but it is in the interest of customer safety and hygiene.
Have you noticed at home, all those cardboard and plastics from your online shopping or food delivery piling up? Or your garbage bin stuffed with all those plastic packets that come from groceries and vegetables and everyday kitchen items?
Materials are so easily and cheaply available to us that we Take-Make/Use-Waste. This is what is referred to as the linear economy.
The Linear Economy
Waste —Words our ancestors’ would have never considered Maybe you remember when you were young how your mother or grandmother used to collect the white strings from the paper food packaging and use them to crochet or old clothes used to be turned into quilts or mattresses or the really old and torn ones into wash rags. Milk bottles and steel containers were reusable. Everything had an additional value and a purpose. Seldom did anything land in the trash.
Urbanization, population growth and consumer capitalism seem to have gotten rid of this traditional frugal and innovative way of using our resources.
India is swimming in a waste crisis but we do have the opportunity to decide how we buy and what we buy and how much waste that might be generated.
