Celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi without harming the environment.



About me :
Things which we can do to make this an Eco-friendly Ganpati - Ganesh Utsav:
1. Buy eco-friendly Clay Ganesh Idols and not plaster of paris idols. Plaster of Paris is harmful to the water and land and takes a long time to dissolve and causes long term damage.

2. Insist on Ganesh Idols painted with Natural Colors. Artificial colors and paints used to paint the idols contain dangerous chemicals that pollute the water.

3. This year reduce the size of the Ganesh idol in your home or community by half.

4. Lets also try and reduce the number of public pandals or community Ganesh Utsavs and jointly celebrate the festival thereby reducing the number of Idols to be finally immersed.

5. Remove the garlands and flowers and put them in paperbags and not plastic bags.

6. Discourage the use of loud speakers during Aarti or during the procession to immerse the Ganesh Idol. We can all do we lesser noise and enjoy the Aarti without the speakers.

7. Work in your local area and create an artificial well where the murtis/idols can be immersed. For your personal home Idols it might be suggested to use a big tub to immerse the Ganesh Idol.

Lets all do our small bit in our local areas to ensure a more eco-friendly Ganesh Utsav for all.
