Time to pledge our commitment towards the environment this Ganesh Chaturthi. Time to pledge our commitment towards the environment this Ganesh Chaturthi.
It`s time for the Lord of the Lords – Lord Ganesha to arrive. The most powerful and the most merciful of all Gods needs some extra care and some extra attention.It is only fair that we pamper him to the fullest and extend him a grand celebration. But make sure not to disappoint him with things he really wouldn’t want you to.
Wondering what we are talking about? If perhaps we could hear him talk, he would really want us to observe simplicity and ensure we do not harm or hurt the environment to impress him. We’re sure he’ll love it if you be innovative and celebrate his arrival in an eco-friendly way.
Teach your Future Generation about Eco-friendly things…
Create or Buy Eco friendly Ganesh idols
All our river bodies are terribly polluted. We really wouldn’t want our favourite God to be responsible to adding more to it, Right?
Use natural colours to decorate them or you can even make decorations at home from wheat flour dough or any other natural materials. The sky is the limit if you wish.
And if you are ready to go that extra mile, take inspiration from this Ganesh idol made with vegetables and create something environment friendly and unique.
Say a BIG no to the use of thermocol. It is not degradable and plus so difficult to dispose. Use cloth, paper or wood. Post the immersion, disposing these is easy and it genuinely feels nice to realize that the environment isn’t getting disturbed because of us.
Restrict Music To Reduce Noise Pollution
Music is good to our ears but only till its not a nuisance or disturbance to others. You really don’t want to cause an inconvenience to someone. Keep the volume in check. Do not get carried away. We are sure our Ganesha doesn’t really enjoy the dhinchak rowdy and senseless Bollywood music. The bhajans and shlokas are much better and create positivity around as well. Choose wisely.
Decompose wherever possible
All the flowers that you have used to decorate Ganeshji and during the aarti can be decomposed. This is a great time for you to take the lead in your society to have a decomposing pit if you don’t have one. Imagine you can produce natural decompose that can be used for your plants. The blessings on Ganesha will penetrate throughout your surroundings!
Eco Friendly Ganpati Visarjan If you know a lot of homes around you welcome the Lord in your society, why don’t you take an initiative to create an artificial immersion tank for everyone to use? All the society members can come together and make use of this immersion tank. It is not only convenient but also helps the roads remain traffic free.
This Ganesh Chathurthi, lets take a step towards Greener Earth by making Eco Friendly Ganesh. Have a family time creating Eco-Ganesha.
