    Practicing mindfullness, lets us to think before every action. Be it using water, using tissues, using transporation, during cooking, while utilising renewable resources and what not! Every action we take does affect our nature, and practicing mindfulness gives us more awareness.

    I had made bio-enzyme, which can be used of multiple cleaning purposes and can also be used to water the plants by diluting it. The beauty is, it is so affordable and has only 3 ingredients. Jaggery/Brown Sugar, Citrus Peels, water in 1: 3: 10 ratio respectively
