The good ol' 'pottalam'
This was how provisions used to be packed by the friendly neighbourhood grocer. An environmentally sound practice which we urbanites have nearly forgotten. This kind of simple packaging (just a neat newspaper folded in the shape of a cone, then tied up with jute string) can still be found in rural groceries.
Perhaps we should go back to the past to give ourselves a better future?
