The Green Earth
Mother nature is always self-balancing, self-adjusting and self-cleansing. Being an integral part of nature, humans have an obligation to assist her in creating a better place to live in. At Sri Dhanvanthari Madom, we are committed to minimize our impact on the planet by promoting the use of sustainable eco-friendly products, contributing to a cleaner, safer environment.
Our planet has undergone several dramatic and detrimental events because of rapid industrialization and urbanization. Population boom, increased energy demands and imprudent use of fossil fuels has led to widespread environ mental degradation. We are slowly realizing about the harm done to our planet by our environmentally irresponsible acts. Many of us are opting for a more sustainable and eco-friendly life by choosing organic food, using chemical free products and cutting down the use of single use plastics. Disposable cutlery is showing up in the Top 10 list of trash found in our oceans.

The disturbing truth about plastic cutlery
Everyday billions of forks, knives, spoons and straws, most of them which can only be used once are thrown away, often finding their way into the environment. Apart from the obvi ous environmental effects, plastic leaches several harmful chemicals into your food and beverages, especially when they come in contact with hot food. Some of these chemicals have been linked to many metabolic issues such as obesity, thyroid diseases, infertility and cancer. And once they are disposed into landfills, they survive for hundreds of years, exuding chemicals into soil and water sources.
Zero Waste Eco Friendly Option
Biodegradable is easy.
Palm wax, although a natural product, is currently grown in an unsustainable manner wreaking havoc on the ecosystem. Soy wax has a crumbly texture as it is more dense. Also, it is not farmed sustainably, as often rain forests are burnt down in order to make way for soy plantations. Environmental groups like WWF have raised concerns about deforestation associated with increased soy demand.
Bamboo has been used throughout Asia for at least 10,000 years. It is admired as a miraculous plant because of its varied life giving uses from building shelters to eating the tender shoots for sustenance. It is associated with immortality and fertility because of its tenacious growth, remarkable strength and resilience.
Indian mythology tells the story of King Rama’s wife Sita who had an extra finger, which she cut off and planted in soil. The bamboo plant is believed to have sprouted from there. A pig came and chewed holes in the plant and through the holes people discovered sacred grains of India-millet, sorghum and amaranth in each segment of the hollow bamboo plant.
Throughout the 20th century we have harmed Mother nature by accepting a lifestyle of instant gratification. We reaped the benefits of Earth, but forgot to replenish it and as a result we are now facing islands of garbage, polluted water and air and climate change. It is time now to start living in harmony with nature for the welfare of our future generations. When we were on the lookout for non-toxic, renewable options in place of plastic, bamboo emerged as a wonder solution. Unlike other commercial crops, bamboo causes very less disruption to local habitat and promotes soil health because of its vigorous root system. While a tree takes almost 30 years to reach maturity, bamboo, a rapidly growing grass matures within 3-5 years. It releases 35% more oxygen than trees and is a carbon-neutral plant. It can be cut, without killing the plant and is heat, stain and odor resistant.
• Bamboo is a natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal and does not need the use of fertilizers or pesticides.
• Bamboo is less porous than wood, making it water-resistant and odor free.
• Bamboo has a higher tensile strength than wood, making it more durable.
• Bamboo is a fast-growing variety of grass that grows to full size in just 3-4 months. It is also harvested without killing the plant, making it extremely sustainable compared to wood.
Sri Dhanvanthari Madom believes in making environmentally conscious choices. We want to provide you with the most natural, eco-friendly and health conscious products, whilst also providing a small yet vital support to a more sustainable and regenerative future.
