Bhubaneswar, Aug 10: From biodegradable material to seeds of indigenous trees, the eco-friendly rakhis are now in trend. The students of Satyabhama Devi College for hearing and impaired at Unit-6 of Ganga Nagar in Bhubaneswar are making the rakhis made of seeds to promote the eco-friendly celebration of the upcoming Raksha Bandhan festival tomorrow. This noble initiative has been taken by Subrat Kumar Pattanayak- Bhubaneswar Chapter, Coordinator of Youth for Seva.

Subrat visited the students of Satyabhama Devi College for hearing and impaired here and arranged an event named” Plantable Rakhi Workshop” where the students made over a hundred Rakhis to celebrate Raksha Bandhan with security personnel. The rakhis will be sent to the border posts to the jawans. Often it is the brother who is there to protect the sister on Rakhi, but this time these sisters have taken the noble task of providing Rakhi to their brother jawans who protect us at the border, said the inmates of the hearing impaired institute.

Ever after Raksha Bandhan, many of people throw the Rakhis and the disposal of rakhis is a huge concern for not only environmentalists but also for us as a citizen.  The seed rakhis will not harm nature in any way. Once the festival is over, these rakhis can be discarded so that they can come in contact with soil and water and turn into a tree.

When asked Subrat said, “We are celebrating Rakshabandhan with eco-friendly seed rakhi. These rakhis sprout new plants and reduce waste. Our volunteers along with the student of Satyabhama Devi College for hearing and impaired have made over a hundred Rakhis to celebrate with the security personnel. This is an innovative culmination of celebrating our festivals and protecting our environment. ”
