Reduce – Reuse – Recycle is not just a philosophy any more. The environmental imbalance we hear about every passing day has forced us to adopt and imbibe to the maximum extent possible. It is imperative therefore to think of ways and means to incorporate this in everything we do and this includes the business we operate – Regalo (the gifting solutions company).
This is a habit both of us – mothers at Regalo imbibed early on in our life.
School projects or rather ‘work experience’ is something that our kids always reminded us of at the eleventh hour (It is a well known joke that work experience is considered mom’s project more than the kid’s). Yes, one could think of rushing to a nearby store and buy all the fancy material to make the project look fab but both of us have this frugal mentality and we would first scourge all the elements available at home mostly from our store rooms or attic and guess what, we always managed to find unique things that not only gave the projects a great finish but built in narrative of finding the best from waste that was always appreciated.
As they say, good habits cultivated over time never leave you. It is evident in our store as well. We have sourced several recycled material to adorn our store. You can reuse our canvas bags and they look fashionable too. We went completely digital from day one thus reducing usage of paper. Most of what we sell has an Eco-friendly tag and story behind it.
We would like to hear your story too….please do share in the comments section below.
