Whose Grass is Greener

grass is greener book

Love thy neighbor versus envy thy neighbor, we would prefer to go with the former. It’s probably more peaceful that way, no matter how green the neighbor’s grass may seem. And the best way to convince yourself to love thy neighbor is to keep repeating, ‘The grass is greener this side of the fence’. Even better is to buy a notebook with this slogan on it.

We did what we do best, we made eco-friendly notebooks with this slogan. It’s made of handmade paper recycled from cotton rags. Available at The White Light.

Upcycled Gift bags. Anyone?

Although the global awareness on environmental issues has increased tremendously, only a minute percentage of people have consciously changed their consumption patterns. Not that they don’t want to, but probably these products don’t add up to their coolness factor or their standards per se.

Nevertheless, we just don’t give up. We at The White Light, continue to find solutions to cater to the ‘likes’ of people, with bombastic designs, convince them to make the ultimate switch to conscious buying.

Our upcycled handcrafted gift bag is another one of our creations. Newspapers block printed and converted into super chic carry bags. Would you buy it or suggest it to anyone who cares enough?

Our Upcycled Pen Stands

What do we do with used toilet paper rolls and all the discarded cloth that we keep collecting? Well, we get creative. We design, innovate and use every bit of material we have, doesn’t matter the combinations. Particularly when the goal is to reduce the waste dumped to the landfills, ideas do emerge.

A simple, yet very useful and durable product that we tried and tested and yes, also sold in large quantities are these awesome pen stands, made from discarded fabric and used toilet paper rolls. They turned out to be absolutely gorgeous, radiating brightness, making any dull space vibrant and happy and why not? They’re made with assorted fabric and colors! And life is all about the variety of spice you add to it, or shall we say colors? 🙂

Valentine3bThis beautiful creation of a box, a work of art, is dedicated to all those people who are simply tired of receiving random friend requests from unknown people. They will stalk you and be there, sending you requests again and again that at times you begin to feel that you might just know them from somewhere. The stand still remains, who the hell are you though.

True love is all around

Valentine4Who says we need to go looking for love. Look around you, it’s everywhere. Love is in the trees, the flowers, the birds and the songs that they sing. Inspired by nature’s love, we hand-painted yet another box in our ongoing series of celebrating love in its purest form.

Red is after all the color of love and all the other good things :). We like to call it the Love and Sunshine Box! 🙂

Some more of our Eco-friendly gift tags

Square envelopes3In our last post we gave a peek into the front design of our new gift tags. This post is about the backside of the gift tags and the different hues they come in. The print on the backside is in gold just like the front. The contrasting colors gives it a rich look and would go with any occasion and any gift. It definitely went well with the bouquet of flowers :).

We love them even more because the paper we used is made from recycling cotton rags, which otherwise would find place only in the garbage pit.

These beautiful gift tags are now available on sale, you can buy them by clicking here. Yes, it’s that simple :).

How about personalizing those gifts?

The gifting season continues, be it weddings, engagement ceremonies, birthdays or even house-warming, there is always a reason to celebrate. It’s during one such occasion, when I had to gift a bouquet of flowers to someone and felt the desperate need of a gift tag that would go with my flowers. I didn’t want any of those plastic looking mill made paper tags with a flowery print, but I wanted something more ethnic and being an amateur environmentalist of some sort, definitely something eco-friendly. Coincidentally, one of our buyers’ was looking for something similar too. Finally, we got around to making these. The picture is sneak peek of one color of the handmade paper tags what we eventually narrowed down to. Quite happy with the result :).
