Each year more than 80,000 Ganesh idols are immersed in water bodies in and around India. This results is an overdose of plastic, toxic dyes and thermocol literally clogging every natural water body visible.
It is high time that we start taking action that will mitigate the eco-logical impact of this festival.
How can you change this?
- Insist on idols that are made of biodegradable materials
- Purchase idols made of papier-mâché or unbaked clay. These dissolve in the water in about two hours and are made from recyclable materials
- SAY NO to plastic, plaster of paris and thermocol idols
- Make your own ganesh by re-cycling materials at home
