Often considered the recession-proof industry, the wedding industry in India amounts to more than 40 billion dollars. It keeps growing rapidly at an annual rate of 30%. But this ever-booming industry doesn’t come without its own hassles. There are hundreds of tiny details that have to be taken care of. While the big fat Indian weddings make it to the headlines, it is the smaller, regular-scale weddings that make up for the volume of this industry. So where does plastic come into all of this? Well it’s the little accessories that make a big event. You may be a wedding planner, a caterer or just a regular person trying to host a wedding – but the following plastic products are going to save you from a lot of trouble.
Seating arrangement is one of the chief concerns in a wedding. Plastic chairs serve the purpose more aptly in this case. First of all, due to their light weight, they can be easily rearranged owing to sudden requirements. Secondly they’re easily transportable, which makes it possible for one to call for more supplies in case there’s a shortage. Thirdly, they’re unbreakable. No unruly kid running around the wedding ground breaks plastic chairs. Therefore, if you’re a vendor, you don’t have to worry about losses, and if you’re renting the chairs, you don’t have to worry about incurring extra costs.
Now let’s talk about the aesthetics. You don’t need to have a designer wedding to make sure that your chairs and tables look good. The best thing about plastic chairs and plastic tables is that they come in different colours. They can easily be a decorative complement to the wedding decorations. Plastc without arm chairs often covered with a decorative white cover. That makes a low-cost plastic chair look premium. It’s one of the most cost-effective ways of enhancing the appeal of a wedding through the furniture.
But that’s not the only area where the use of plastic comes in handy at weddings. If you’re arranging a wedding, you’d know that there are several things that need to be carried from one place to another and stored. There are flowers, decorative, tools, food items, and so much more coming in and out of the wedding premises – you need to store these items with care. This is where the role of quality plastic crates comes to play.
Plastic kitchen trolleys for serving starters makes life a lot easier for caterers at weddings. Plastic crates are also useful for collecting used plates.
Plastic waste binsare also an indispensable part of wedding events. No event management is successful without a proper waste management system, and if you don’t want your wedding to smell foul, make sure your waste bins are sorted. In destination weddings plastic make-shift toilets are also quite common.
While the wedding industry is booming, it may also leave behind a tremendous amount of waste. Plastic furniture and other plastic products also play a role in limiting the carbon footprints of our weddings by being – reusable, recyclable and highly durable.

Monsoon is here, and it’s here in full throttle. Love it or hate it, monsoons mean a lot of indoor time. Be it work-from-home or cancelled plans with friends because of heavy rainfall, you’ll be spending a lot of your time at home in the coming days. How do you make the best of it? – By simply making your home monsoon-ready. Here’s how you do it!
Make a cosy corner!
If you’re spending most of your time indoors, you better find a nice corner to relax and enjoy the rain outside. Take a look at this sun lounger. While it’s an amazing piece of furniture to enjoy the outdoors during the summer, the sun lounger from Italica can be ideal furniture to relax on with a hot cup of coffee and a nice book on a rainy day.
Set up a comfortable work space
Welcome to adulthood where rainy days don’t mean holidays. It’s work-from-home time, and you better set up your workstation at home. But here’s the thing: working from home is fine as long as you’re not distracted. Don’t ever make the mistake of working out of your bed or the sofa. Always find a plastic table and chair. Make sure your chair is designed well enough to support your back for a good 7-8 hours.
Keep the water and mud outside the house
If there are people coming in and out of your house during the monsoons, you’d know how water dripping from their umbrellas makes the floor all wet and eventually muddy. All you have to do is put a plastic crate outside your house where all umbrellas and raincoats can be stored. You can keep a separate crate for wet shoes if you like.
Take care of your trash
Monsoons come as a relief but there are a few issues that tag along too. One of them is stinky dustbins. It is because of the extra moisture in the air, dustbins smell worse during monsoons. Not only is it a foul smell but it’s also something quite unhygienic. So if you have been planning to change your dustbin for a while, now is the time. Get a big, good quality plastic waste bin with a lid that doesn’t let the smell escape.
Make the best of the rains
It’s not unknown to anyone that our country is facing a huge water crisis and it’s only going to get worse. You may or may not live in an area that is currently affected by the shortage of water but it’s our responsibility to make the best of the rainwater. Storing rainwater, even in small quantities is a great step that we can take to battle the situation. We can check our use of running tap water as well as help our neighbors this way. Why not put a large plastic storage bin outside your home and store some water when it is raining cats and dogs?
Doesn’t have to be all indoors
Just because it’s raining outside, doesn’t mean you have you to spend every minute indoors! If you want to enjoy the gentle pitter-patter, the mild petrichor and the cool breeze at your porch, terrace, backyard or garden, go ahead. Set up nice plastic furniture set with plastic chairs and tables on your terrace with a large overhead umbrella, and enjoy a warm cup of coffee and snacks with your loved ones. Or, simply set up a plastic chair in your balcony, and enjoy the view while sitting on a chair with your feet rested on the railing. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?
