New Delhi: The pollution level across the world is increasing every day. As Diwali 2022 is just around the corner, we must take a pledge to celebrate the festival in an eco-friendly way. This year the auspicious occasion, which marks the return of Lord Ram to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile in the forest, is to be celebrated on October 24.
Below here, we have curated a list of five ways to celebrate the important occasion in an environmentally friendly way. From saying no to crackers to making organic rangoli, one can try these four ideas to celebrate green Diwali.
1. Say no to crackers
Amid global warming, this is high time to say no to crackers this Diwali. Instead of burning crackers, you must light your house with diyas to add more beauty to your celebrations.
2. Eco-friendly gifts
Most of us plan to gift watches, mobile phones, and jewellery to our loved ones. This Diwali, you must choose plants, organic skin care products, handmade bags, and khadi items to gift someone.
3. Recycle decorations
Without decorations, the festival of lights is incomplete. One can try diyas instead of buying bulbs to hang on the wall of buildings. There are a lot of ideas, you just think out of the box to utilise waste material.
4. Organic Rangoli
Drawing rangolis at different places, we can buy chemical-free colour powders. This is one of the best ways to go green this Diwali. Colour made of flowers, rice, vegetable waste, and pulses are the best option to make organic Rangoli.
