We are back from our holiday in Sri Lanka. It was a two weeks holiday. We could spend time with our parents, friends, and relatives though it was again packed with some of our tasks including renewing our passports. During our wait for passport issuing, we paid a visit to a nearby supermarket. (Arpico Supercenter @Battaramulla). As I am still not ready for writing about our whole trip, I thought of sharing some of these photos from our holiday. Below are some of my findings at this outlet. 🙂
Arecanut Leaf Plates
Arecanut leaves are with big sheaths. As a child, I have experience and memories of playing with these areca sheaths. But, this time I found reusable plates that are made out of areca sheaths. The label said these arecanut leaf plates can be reused around 10 times and these are microwavable as well. It is a good alternative to plastic and styrofoam disposable plates.
Clay Plates and Clay pots
My next findings are these clay plates. Since I get married, I cook most of my meals in clay pots and pans. Therefore, when I saw these clay plates, I was attracted. But, I still like to eat on a ceramic plate more than a plain clay plate. 🙂
Below are some other eco-friendly products (Pan Watti) that can be used for storing items. These baskets are made of natural materials such as rattan.
Well, among all the above eco-friendly products these artificial flowers could catch my eye. In Singapore, I don’t have many opportunities to pluck fresh flowers for home decor other than buying fresh flowers. Therefore, I use some artificial flowers too to decorate my home. In this Supermarket, I found beautiful flower pots that are good for home decor.
Artificial flowers are a great alternative to fresh flowers. It is less expensive compared to buying fresh flowers. I usually wash such flowers to extend their life span. But, I always love fresh flowers and grown-up plants for home decor.
After spending time inside this Arpico Supercentre, we both had some Sri Lankan short eats (snacks) with Nescafe.
How was your week? Do you have any new findings? Do you like to go green but still use some artificial products as well same as I do? Please share your thoughts as a comment. 🙂
