World Environment Day turns 47 in 2021. This year, the theme is Ecosystem Restoration, denoted by the phrase, REIMAGINE. RECREATE. RESTORE. Hosted by Pakistan, the occasion would also mark the launch of The UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration – which is a Global Rally that brings together the Generation Restoration in a bid to spread awareness and get active in restoring the 8 key ecosystems – Forests, Oceans & Coastlines, Urban Areas, Freshwater, Peatlands, Farmlands, Grasslands & Savannah, Mountains with also includes the Polar Regions.
Key conservation guidelines have been put together for each of the 8 ecosystems. For the steps that would take the collaboration of citizens, governments, the industrial sector along with the participation of influential people, it is an established fact that Environmental Conservation is a lot about Urban Conservation as well. It is by restoring the balance of human lifestyle, industrial methods and Governments fulfilling their commitments, that can finally bring the eco-balance to a full circle.
For example, if the oceans are cleaned or populations of endangered marine animals are restored, there is no guarantee that there won’t be any further marine pollution or unsustainable fishing activities in future without restorative Government Rules and adequate protection measures. Similarly, there is also the need to look into alternatives so that fishermen don’t need to go for Unstable Fishing to sustain their livelihoods. So for balance, we need new reforms, new methods and new perspectives that have something for everyone.
What Does Ecosystem Restoration Mean To Us At Richie Bags
Being a leading Eco-Bags Manufacturer and Exporter in India, we are lucky to be closer to the Golden Fibre – Jute. As we supplied our Jute Fashion Bags, Shopping Bags, Promotional Bags as well raw materials to businesses across the world, we have witnessed the incredible potentials of sustainable packaging, eco-friendly promotions and conscious fashion.
Furthermore, the talk of restoration is much more significant for us because we have been practising sustainable production methods since the beginning and have set benchmarks for other industries.
The Power Of An Eco-Friendly Bag
They say, “If the buying stops, the killing can too”.
We believe, “If there is an eco-friendly alternative that is enriched with social values, then maybe the buying can stop, and then the killing can stop too…. “
There is magic in Beauty, Grace, Joy and Style – that’s what we call Luxury. For a long time, the concept of “Luxury” has been associated with materials that can be extremely damaging to the ecosystem. But as time changes and designers and creators are adding new perspectives, that makes eco-friendly visions more and more real and attractive, even Luxurious, the leaning towards harmful materials are rapidly deteriorating.
And eco-bags being one of the most iconic Sustainable Products exported across the world by suppliers like Richie Bags, the product has gained a powerful status. Because there are dynamic uses of product – it can be packaging, it can be fashion, it can be Home Decor and it can be an excellent Corporate Promotional Good.
