Ilai in Tamil language means Leaf. A leaf is perfect example for a natural resource which has its use throughout its life and after. While in the tree it provides necessary energy to the tree and provides life for all life dependent on the tree. When it is done and falls down on earth, it becomes food for the microorganisms, biodegrades and provides energy for the soil.
In nature, there is no concept of waste. A fallen leaf becomes manure, leftovers from a lions hunt becomes food for the scavengers, a rotten fruit becomes food for microorganisms. It is only Human lifestyle which generates waste.
ilai is an effort to get you products which are made from so called waste or creates minimal leftovers which gets absorbed by nature and strengthens life.
Let us celebrate Life on earth!
