How is Tree Ganesha helpful for the future generations?

As per research reportedly the post effects on marine life are noticeable to a large scale. After the immersion ceremony for the span of 10 days. The change in PH level, the temperature of the water and dissolved solutes are exponentially high.
As we here at tree Ganesha work towards making eco-friendly Ganpati idols. Our main goal is to make this world a pollution-free world with respect to contributing by making eco-friendly idols.

Many people think that using eco-friendly Ganpati would only solve the problem of pollution. The 10 day-long festival of Ganesh Chaturthi also leads to the generation of huge waste from flowers, decoration, incense sticks, and fruits. These materials are mostly stuffed within the plastic bags and are thrown near the immersion locations. Leading to mismanaged garbage collection and accumulation in one place.

The idols are heavily decorated with huge amounts of paints containing lead, magnesium, mercury and also synthetic oils. These substances do not dissolve in the water bodies leading to adverse effects on marine life causing water and soil pollution.
The POP (plaster of Paris) idols are also made from artificial materials that are insoluble and effect by creating pollution. And mismanagement of waste. This material is heavy in nature sink into the water bodies and is settled into the water bed. Which directly affects the coral bed, which is the breeding ground for the fishes.

How are we not contributing to this?
We at tree Ganesha are happy by solving this problem and bringing you a divine and future conscious approach. Our idols are made from 100% eco-friendly materials and we do not use any kind of plastic.
Our paints are used at a minimal level and are natural materials. We are plastic neutral. we do not use any kind of plastic during production and do not encourage plastic.

Our idols are made from red soil or called lal maathi that is directly available from mother nature. This material is natural and does not contain any harmful substances. The soil from the idol is used for planting a new tree.

The decoration of the idols contains no synthetic materials or plastic materials that are harmful to nature. Natural colors are used and at a minimal quantity.

How bad are the effects of immersion ceremony?
The below table shows the adverse effect on water bodies after the immersion of POP idols. These are official figures and can make us realize how deeply we are affecting nature.

The effect is drastic compared to the only reason causing this pollution. The rise in water salinity is also a major factor causing it. This does not affect only the marine life inside the water but also the life above the water.
The current rising temperature on earth due to human activity is adversely leading to rising water levels. Immersion of idols adds up to it. So let us leave a beautiful world behind for our upcoming generations.

How we are making your future generations safe?
Adaptation is the biggest strength. so let us adapt and bring this season an eco-friendly tree Ganesha’s Ganesha at our home and celebrate with great happiness and not affecting nature.
This does not only bring a positive aspect for the future but also makes a good habit for the younger kids to follow an eco-friendly lifestyle.

Whereas, the idols made by tree Ganesha are eco friendly and are immersion free. Ganpati Bappa stays at home and does not pollute the environment, leaving a clean and green future for our upcoming generations.

How Tree Ganesha stands apart from POP and Shadu mitti (Grey clay) Idols?

The festival of wisdom, prosperity, and good fortune. yes, the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi is in the corner and we are about to start preparing for this festival. The festival is celebrated with idols of lord Ganesha and with beautiful decorations. The event of bringing the idol home is very interesting and joyous. This festival brings happiness to our family. Each and everyone celebrates this festival with belief towards Lord Ganesha.

We often as human beings are so engrossed in making our events happen that we forget how we are harming the mother nature . we still do the same thing for years. We pollute nature very deeply.

But did you know? the idol that you worship during this festival is made up of POP (Plaster Of Paris)? POP is made of resins that are non-dissoluble in water and effects nature and marine life adversely leading to water pollution. The resins may take up to years to decompose.

AS per research the state of Maharashtra accounts for 20,00,000 (2 million) idols itself. These idols are made majorly of the Plaster of Paris. Leading to affect marine life and sanitary workers health. The immersions of idols in such a large scale would lead to accumulation of waste in the ground surface.
These idols are the purposely need to be dumped or broken into the pieces by the government so that they dissolve much faster. Such materials are washed off to the shore with the waves and indeed also polluting the land also.

Do you feel devasted after seeing those photos where parts of idols are washing to the shore?
Who does like to see such photos? right? To see something that you have worshiped for years lying in that state. The government has to dispose of the materials into dumping ground and has to think about the environment before the religion. It’s high time to realize that there is no religion to worship if there is no humanity left. Here is how you can help towards that cause and help build a better planet for ourselves.

Why not POP Idols.?
As traditionally in India the idols are made of POP. These idols are also decorated with colors to make them more attractive and appealing for the eyes . each and every idol is different in its own way. so that requires to use paints in a heavy quantity.
These paints are made of synthetic oils, lead, and mercury, etc. do not dissolve into the water bodies, Thereby making a layer on top of the water blocking oxygen dissolution into the water. These residues also contaminate the freshwater bodies leading to a shortage of water for domestic purposes.

Traditional idols also contain loads of decorative items that are made up of plastic and fiber materials these materials do not dissolve in the water bodies and by polluting the water not only leading to water pollution but also leading to land pollution. These materials take a long time to decompose and hence leading to affecting the marine ecosystem.
Aquatic animals swallow these items and are thereby leading to their premature death. the reason behind this is respiratory problems. Researches have found that the fish catches found in the coast of Mumbai have approximately 2 mg of plastic in the organs of the fishes.

How does tree Ganesha fight this problem?
The alternative to this is by choosing eco-friendly Ganesh murti. which are made of Red soil and which is considered very holistic in the Hindu culture. These idols are made with eco-friendly materials and do not include any kind of artificial material. The sole purpose of these idols is to promote natural materials and celebrate this festival in a healthy way.

We do not use colours for the whole idols as observing the effects of it on the environment. Saving and caring for all is what we work for.
