Say no to Crackers
There’s no doubt that everyone loves to see the sky light up with fireworks. However, this happiness is short-lived and severely harmful, which leads to air and noise pollution.
Take a different route and celebrate a green Diwali by saying no to crackers. Make the day about spending quality time with your loved ones than lighting fire to crackers.
Light Earthen Diyas
We all know how good and long-lasting the lovely earthen diyas are, yet we opt for the LED ones. Conserve electricity by choosing light oil diyas that you can also paint on to beautify them.
This is a great eco-friendly Diwali activity for children that teaches them the importance of the festival and conservation.
Say yes to Flower Rangolis
No Diwali celebration can be deemed complete without a rangoli. This year instead of choosing chemical colours, use organic ones. We mean flowers!
Yes, you can make rangolis of any size and design with the help of petals. Apart from being a step close to an eco-friendly Diwali, it is also hassle-free and enjoyable.
Gifting is one of the most important traditions of this festival. So, in the spirit of celebrating a green Diwali, you should give away eco-friendly gifts, like plants. Whether you choose an air-purifying buddy or a stress-relieving one, it will make the recipient grateful for your gesture.
Reuse & Recycle Diwali Gifts
Lastly, reusing and recycling gifts! The final step towards a fully eco-friendly Diwali is finding the use of the presents you received last year and this year. Whether you turn a sweets box into a first-aid kit or cards into bookmarks, you can reuse and recycle Diwali gifts with ease.
