There is an extreme zeal in the environment of Diwali where the excitement among people is level-high. The long wait for Deepavali has ended as all the cities are lit with brightened lights. But the two-days’ Diwali across the country or ten-days Diwali in Gujarat affects the environment a lot with pollution. Even a one-day smoke and noise from the cracking crackers can have a worse impact on nature. The crackers’ smoke, gift-wrappers, and plastic bags leave a lasting mark on the environment, though it’s a one-day or few days affair.

Let us make you know about a few effective tips to celebrate this festival in an eco-friendly way and at the same time lessen the pollution around us!

  • Buy the Earthen Lamps in Diwali: Instead of selecting electric lights and plastic bulbs for conserving electricity, you can buy beautifully painted earthen bulbs. It’s high time you should think of global warming. You can also choose solar-powered lamps which aren’t pricey and one can re-use them too. You can even find hand-made painted earthen lamps which when lit, look wonderful.

  • Use Natural Colours: Make use of natural colors in the form of Rangoli in front of your homes. You can draw the nicest kolam ever in the Diwali, but select for kola-podi in natural colors. Please say no to those artificially colored chemical-laden Rangoli powders. One can even use turmeric powder, salt, vermillion, and grated coconut to add pretty colors to the kolams.

  • Say No to Plastics: Besides Diwali shopping, many people might shop home several plastic covers. This Diwali, you make sure to say no to plastics; instead, you should carry cloth or jute bags with you. A good option is also katta pai. In this way, you are doing something good to save your environment.
  • Crackers: For many people, Diwali seems incomplete without cracking huge numbers of crackers. Even though the Supreme Court has said to burst crackers from 8 pm to 10 pm only, still many might not listen. Every person should make an effort to lessen their environment’s pollution by not bursting crackers. They should select those crackers which don’t give out much smoke or make a loud noise. Use lesser numbers of crackers if you want to burst.

  • Chuck out Disposable Plates and Glasses: In Diwali, people throw parties at their homes or hotels. Ensure not to use disposable plates and glasses. Instead, buy environment-friendly glasses and plates such as areca nut and banana fiber.
  • Meet and Greet with Sweets and Dry Fruits: Diwali is a great occasion to meet your loved ones, greet them with hugs, exchange sweets and dry fruit boxes with each other, and take clicks and selfies. This is the most precious moment to hang out with your friends and family. You can even buy the last-minute Diwali gift shopping from Amazon, Flipkart, and Snapdeal.
