Giving gifts in personal and work life is a very personal and intimate gesture. It strengthens established relationships and nurtures new ones. In a time where we have innumerable choices of gifts in front of us, most of which are disposable and temporary, it’s important that we get original and give something that represents our warmth and affection towards our loved ones. This is where the Earthly Creations Green Gifting initiative comes in. Under this initiative, one can gift beautiful plants as a way of showing ones gratitude and love, values that are ideal for any and all occasions. Giving plants is the perfect way to symbolise the growth and maturity of a relationship or friendship. It’s a known fact that the presence of plants soothes the soul and breathes life into whichever place it is kept in.
With its CSR initiative of Green Gifting, Earthly Creations hope to promote their ongoing effort towards fostering a keen sense of awareness for the earth and the people living in it. Its focus is on redefining ways in which people give gifts and felicitations by replacing traditional gifts with potted plants. The magic with plants is that not only are they sustainable and eco-friendly but also last much longer than the traditional chocolates and flowers. They are a long-lasting testament of love, warmth and strength. With this initiative, Mrs. Harpreet Ahluwalia, the founder of Earthly Creations, hopes to create a definite shift in the values surrounding the gifting culture and take it to towards a more eco-friendly path.
To quote Mrs. Harpreet Ahluwalia, “There is nothing like a personal gift that one took time and care to grow or select. Ideally, exchange of gifts does not need an occasion. But a few occasions need special attention like birthdays, anniversaries, and festivals. Giving gifts is a genuine token of affection. It is a symbol of personal relationship; a universal way of showing appreciation and gratitude to others. The whole act of giving is determining what needs to be given and making sure it is appropriate for the person. Our collection of gifts is exactly the right choice for gifting something special to someone special”.
The driving force behind the Green gifting program is Mrs. Harpreet Ahluwalia’s emphasis on the socio-economic development of the potter’s she has employed. Currently, she works with around 40 potters who shares her creative drive and vision. Most of them live below the poverty line and work hard to support their family. Moved by their circumstances, Mrs. Harpreet Ahluwalia decided to contribute a share of earnings to the education of the children of the potters, thus giving back to her employees. Through this initiative, she hopes to bring a positive change in the lives of these families and help them alleviate themselves socially and economically.
With creative and eye-catching terracotta pots, the brand hopes to capture the attention of its consumers and help promote an eco-friendly lifestyle. The realistic designs are extremely trendy and draw inspiration from nature and can bring any interior or garden alive with colour and creativity. For instance, the animal and bird shaped planters can be used to mimic the natural world, bringing it close to home. These pots are all made of terracotta and are hand painted under Mrs. Harpreet Ahluwalia’s supervision, thus lending a human touch to every product that she creates.
The kind of work and attention put into the products can be reflective of what you want your gift to symbolise to the receiver. The gift of nature is always well received and loved. So this time, why not take a chance and buy a plant for your loved ones and see your relationship grow and strengthen like never before.
