Climate change, which is more evident than ever before now, is almost set to throw the ecosystem off-balance. What we are witnessing, collectively, is, to a huge extent, the result of mindless consumption and standardized industrial production. However, there might be a slight chance of hope if we turn ourselves towards a more diverse mode of production and growth. If we are only able to look at what nature provides and not force it to our benefit, our future might also thank us.
This box is a testament to that wondrous way in which nature works. The frequently flooded lands of Sundarbans nurture these salt-tolerant varieties of rice, most of which are thick, because that is how they grow naturally. At a time when large areas of land are being flooded due to cyclones, threatening livelihoods, consumption of these varieties will largely encourage the small-scale farmers to support these crops. And as these crops thrive, so will our ecosystem, naturally.

You get to support the growth-harvest-consumption pattern the way nature intended; encourage small-holder farmers of Sundarbans to turn towards indigenous crop varieties, which generally have not been profitable historically; and promise our posterity a slightly better future.
