One of the most anticipated festivals is coming soon and we have all the disposables you need.
In between a sea of devotees clad in yellow and time-worn traditions of milk bearing and kavadis, food charity keeps the festival going. Yes, apart from what you see and cherish, what you taste also stays true to the word “Festival”. Thaipusam is a Hindu Festival originating from South India and commemorates the feats of Lord Murugan, also known as Lord Subramaniam. As per the Hindu mythological book, Skanda Purana, Thaipusam is the day when the lord himself appeared in front of his devotees on a peacock. Moreover, it acknowledges Lord Murugan’s victory over the evil forces. Thus, every part and parcel of Thaipusam signifies a celebration – good over evil, light over darkness and wisdom over ignorance. Devotees pray and fulfil vows in order to overcome the obstacles they face in life.
It is said that Thaipusam began in Penang during the late 19th century. It’s held largely in Waterfall and the day before and after Thaipusam, numerous routes hosting the chariot come alive. Because food is a vital part of the festival, disposable plates and lunch boxes are equally important. Since 2013, Green Eco Paradise has been supplying the desired disposables at wholesale prices.
Here is the list of disposables you need for Thaipusam:

In the league of disposable lunch boxes, our bio lunch box is a star player. This disposable food box is similarly made from paddy straw and has no layer of plastic. It has been a firm favourite since 2013 for Thaipusam. In our test to determine the strength of the eco lunch box, we served hot noodles with gravy too. Fast and convenient while packing too.

Not forgetting the paper cup’s 230gsm that makes it comfortable to hold while exploring the festival. Some people tend to serve sweet desserts like payasam in this disposable cup too.
