OPINION: It's been a bad week for Fonterra.
The ‘Khadi Prakritik Paint’ is a first-of-its-kind product which is being touted as eco-friendly and non-toxic, with anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.
With actual cow dung as its main ingredient, the paint is said to be cost-effective and also odourless.
The Khadi and Village Industries Commission, which launched the paint , says it is free from heavy metals like lead, mercury, chromium, arsenic, and cadmium.
This technology will increase the consumption of cow dung as a raw material for eco-friendly products and will generate additional revenue to farmers- about $500 annually from each animal.
