Welcoming Ganesha into your home is a pleasant, fulfilling and beautiful experience- one that so many of us look forward to every year. The festival of Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated with a lot of fervour and excitement across India and honours one of the most favourite idols of our country- Lord Ganesha.
The festival sees everyone taking part in the celebrations with sweets, Ganesha idols, dancing, revelry and enjoyment. But in the midst of this excitement and celebration, a little thought must be given to our planet- the beautiful planet that we are a part of. Lord Ganesha would want you to do that!!
Conventionally, Ganesha idols are made of materials which are not exactly biodegradable. Hence, once the celebration is done, the idol is immersed into the water and remains there, sometimes harming the biodiversity and affecting the environment. A very simple way to counter this, while enjoying the festival and inviting Bappa into your home is to make Ganesha from eco-friendly material like clay, leaves and turmeric.
How to do that?? See some beautiful eco-friendly Ganesha Idols made from natural materials:
