Environment/Eco-Friendly Ganesh Chaturthi Festival How we can Celebrate!

An environmental/eco friendly Ganesh Chaturthi festival how we can celebrate? And save our river and lakes from water pollution, but still a large section of the society are unaware of the pollution and environmental damage done by Plaster of Paris ganpati idols and chemical colors. In Ahmedabad Gulbai Tekra Area is the hub of Making Ganesh Idols we can tell them benefits of the environment friendly idols.

Plaster of Paris (POP) is not a logically occurring material and contain gypsum, sulphur, phosphorus and magnesium in it. The Murti take several months to dissolve in water and in the process poison the waters of ponds, lake and rives and seas. The alternate of this regular tradition is eco friendly idols of ganesha. Which is made from clay and painted with natural colors. And one another option we have is use permanent idols made of stone and perform a symbolic immersion and reuse the idol all year.do not use public water bodies for Ganesh Visarjan. And one option is the idols made from eco friendly materials. There are lots of option we have to save water from chemical colors and Plaster of Paris. Use of  the ‘nirmalya’ as a fertilizer, which is produce during the festival like flowers, which you can simply dumped in the soil it can be later converted in to fertilizer instead of throwing in a water at the last day of visarjan.
