Have we stopped to consider the Environmental impacts of Ganesh Chaturthi?
- Water pollution caused by immersion of plaster of Paris idols into natural water bodies.
- Water pollution caused by chemical paints used on these idols.
- The waste generated by non-biodegradable accessories used during the worship.
- Noise pollution
- Traffic congestion
- If you do celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi, please immerse the idol in a water tank available in your city instead of into natural water bodies.
- Use only natural clay idols.
- Immerse a symbolic representation of the idol like a betel nut and reuse the same idol every year.
