Celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi is very dear to our heart and we celebrate with all will and love towards it. We as devotees love the teachings of lord Ganesha and implement it in every part of our life. During the festival too we serve the naivedya that is of something that is dear to Lord Ganesha.
The celebration of eco-friendly Ganesh Chaturthi is not only by using tree Ganesha's idols but also beyond that. It is important to understand that we have to use materials during the festivals that are eco friendly. Using decorative materials made out of flowers and natural materials is of great help rather than using thermocol and other artificial materials. The use of plastic containers and bags have to be also avoided so that there is no pollution and wastage at a large scale. The usage has to be minimal and food waste has to be reduced. The rising temperature on earth and the use of fossil fuel leading to depletion of natural resources. The rise of the water level is very certain and it would be of no surprise to tell that the rising water level will submerge the city of Mumbai in no time. Not only in Mumbai but all over the world.
The carbon footprints and depletion of the ozone layer is a serious issue. The lockdown India has taught us how adversely we as human beings are affecting our nature. When researched about this the only answer to this was to make the earth cleaner and greener. Here is where we are doing our part by doing the needy by providing tree Ganesha. That has zero waste production and causes negative pollution. The seeds that are in the idols are of the plants that are in daily use for a domestic lifestyle. Ranging from seeds of fruit plants to flowers, vegetables, and much more.
We being negative to pollution means that we add to nature by adding plants to the ecosystem. That not only benefits us but also animals and microorganisms. The plants are in a pot that makes it portable.
BENEFITS: 1. Idols are made from natural red soil. 2. Zero chemicals used such as colors and another catalyst. 3. Easy to carry idols because of safe packaging. 4. 100% dissolvable idols. 5. Durable and portable.
While hearing the cheers of people saying “ pudchya varshi lavkar ya “ and you miss the festival and devotion. Now we have our idol at home forever just in the form of a plant and can be among us. Never missed and tell your children about them.
