CHUK- An Alternative To Plastic Tableware

I really hate when I see plastic waste scattered here and there. In today's life, almost everything is in plastic form. And unknowingly every single day, we use so much of plastic in one or the other form. Cups, pens, water bottles, tiffin boxes and almost every item has an element of plastic which will easily take 500 years to decompose itself. Due to different awareness campaigns and movements against plastic, many of us have started ditching plastic from our lives. We are looking for alternatives and things that are made of eco-friendly materials.
Alarmed by the dreadful reality that plastic and its decomposition both are harmful, Uttar Pradesh-based Ved Krishna came up with a solution to the ever-growing pile of plastic in the form of Edible Cutlery. His tableware range is launched with name CHUK. And I feel this is an awesome alternative to plastic plates, bowls, containers and lids. Mr Krishna runs a business in Faizabad, ‘Yash Papers limited’ that produces papers from sugarcane waste, for packaging and wrapping purposes. With aim of reducing garbage, replacing plastics with non-toxic alternatives, and making the Mother Earth cleaner, Mr Krishna started with an innovating idea of making biodegradable tableware in 2009. And last year in 2017 it finally happened, biodegradable tablewares are now available. They are the only pulp-2-product brand in the world.

CHUK- An Alternative To Plastic Tableware by Vibhu & MeCHUK tableware is made of sugarcane waste which decomposes itself into manure a few months after its disposal. Another amazing thing is the colour of tableware. Mr Krishna decided to retain the natural brown colour of pulp and avoided using bleach which is a harmful chemical used often in other conventional options. One can easily microwave or put the tableware in the oven to warm the food and freeze it when necessary. Do we need anything else as wonderful as CHUK? I don't think so. Their website says

"The short fibres of sugar cane are the best in the world for curving around all the shapes we need for plates and bowls and trays. We leave our products the natural shade so we don’t need to use any harmful bleaching chemicals. No human hands touch the product in our state of the art facility which ensures total hygienic products."

 I went through their website and realized that they have done a lot of research and analysis on demands of different food chains. Mr Krinsa came in contact with many research firms and all of them want a packaging that should not harm the environment. The world needs compostable chip bags and environmentally-friendly barriers in tea pouches. And then in 2014, the concept of CHUK was born. If you look at the website, there are ample of tableware options available and many are on the way to come forth. You get bowls, trays, lids, plates and containers that are absolutely nature-friendly. And very soon they are going to make glasses, cups and sandwich boxes available for sale. The cost ranges from anything between Rs. 1 to Rs. 7, which is on the higher side than the usual plastic cutlery. However, Mr Krishna believes that it is at an affordable rate if we care about Mother Nature.

I am simply touched by their noble thinking and innovation skills. In this era of ignorance and carelessness, a 500 people organization is working hard to make earth a better place for coming generation. As a brand and tableware company, CHUK has partnered with many well-known food chains and restaurants. CHUK’s growing customer base goes to show how people are now willing to make a switch from non-biodegradable plastic and contribute their bit towards the environment in any way possible. CHUK is ovenable, microwaveable, and freezable. Is this not perfect? They say they are trying. I would say this is nearly perfect and I am in love with this idea. Hats off to their work. Way to Go!!

पत्नियों के लिए भी एक व्रत का प्रस्ताव..

अरे याद है ना.. हर साल की तरह वो प्यार का त्यौहार फिर से आ गया.. अच्छा तो आप कंफ्यूज हो गई कि ये वैलेंटाइन डे तो कब का जा चुका अब किस प्यार के त्यौहार कि बात करने लगी मैं.. बताती हूँ बताती हूँ.. अपनी हिन्दू सभ्यता में भी एक प्यार का त्यौहार होता है "करवा चौथ.."अहा, क्या उत्सव है प्रेम का. पहले प्रेम मिश्रित सेवा फिर सेवा के बदले प्रेम मिश्रित उपहार. वाह..

बाजार पट गए है डिज़ाइनर चमकदार छलनी से लेकर गोटे लगी थालियों से और होने भी चाहिए. आखिर इस कदर महान संस्कृति जिसमें पति को देवता मान कर, उनके लिए दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर पत्नियां व्रत करती हैं, उनकी उम्र बढ़ाने जैसा ईश्वरीय कार्य करती हैं, उस दैवीय व्रत का इतना उत्सव तो होना ही चाहिए. और याद रहे चरणस्पर्श करना एकदम जरूरी है व्रत के नियमो के हिसाब से नहीं तो पति की उम्र से छेड़ छाड़ हो सकती है. समझ नहीं आता इतना ज्ञान आया कहा से हमारे पूर्वजो में जिससे ये पता चला कि अगर पत्नी दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर चाँद की पूजा करे तो पति की उम्र साल दर साल बढ़ती जाती है? वैसे धन्य है भारतीय महिलाये. पति चाहे शराबी, जुवारी कबाबी कैसा भी हो, पतियों…

Be Healthy With Infused Water And InstaCuppa #SuperBloggerChallenge2018 #Instacuppa

Two things are in my mind mostly these days: Having a healthy Lifestyle and Staying Happy.
Happiness and good health are very much connected to each other, isn't it? If you are happy your health remains good. And if you are healthy, you keep on increasing your happiness. The easiest trick to stay healthy is to have a good water intake every day. However, as simple as it looks, for most of the people, drinking sufficient water every day is a task. They somehow ignore this very essential need of the human body. Every single cell in our body needs water to function properly. The result of less water intake is eventual dehydration, dull face, fatigue, bloating and weak immune system.

Can drinking water help you stay healthy? Spoiler alert, YES IT CAN!

Now, if you are bored of having the plane, tasteless water, then you must know about INFUSED WATER. Infused water is adding different kinds of fruit, vegetables, and herbs to water and letting it settle for some time. This way, all antiox…

#MothersDay - A blog by Divya, ANAYA's Mother

A mother becomes a mother the day she gets to know about the little embryo inside her womb.
It all started one fine day when I did my pregnancy test and it resulted positive. Life changed from the very moment. I was excited but a bit nervous too. I and my husband were working in two different cities that time. So the excited supermom in me felt extra responsible to take care of the baby. I started spending my days managing home, office, long travel, shopping, exercise, reading and any and every thing which could be added to the list. My baby kept me motivated and never let me feel alone. At times when I felt low she kicked me as if she was saying ‘Don’t worry mom. You rock! :) However, by end of sixth month I felt exhausted and I decided to move to my mother’s place for delivery and give some time to my husband to settle down with his work life.



After seven hectic years of work life I was enjoying a peaceful time. Days were spent in all sorts of preparations to welcome the child. But…
