The Festival of Lights is upon us, having spent a year full of not-so-good news and several ups and downs. Therefore, it is quite normal to celebrate this year with extra fanfare, while being safe and responsible, of course. Yes, masks, disinfection, and other safety protocols definitely need to be followed, and we’re confident everyone will. But this year, do we also commit to having a greener Diwali, okay?
People may mistakenly assume that it is a lot of work to have an eco-friendly or even expensive Diwali. But this is not true. There are little ways to help that can have huge impacts. Take a look at the three ecological tips we suggest you incorporate into this festive season.
1.) Organic rangoli colors
What is Diwali without dynamic and complex rangolis? But as vivid as the colors are, they can be extremely unhealthy. Chemically made rangoli colors are terrible for the environment and are also harmful to the human body if inhaled.
Instead, there is a fairly straightforward alternative. Just go to your local market and ask for organic colors, or be safer and order them online. Organic colors are made from flowers and do not harm you or the environment.
2.) Reduce the use of plastics
Plastic is a material that has infiltrated our lives, so avoiding plastic altogether is almost impossible, but what you can do is minimize your use. If you are shopping, take your own fabric or paper bags with you, instead of the usual plastic bags. At home, replace your plastic cutlery with wooden cutlery in case you order food.
3.) Take it easy on the fireworks
No points to guess, it was obviously necessary to mention this point. We get it, fireworks are an integral part of all Diwali mood, but its environmental impacts cannot be forgotten or dismissed. We can’t tell you not to use fireworks, but the least you can do is reduce the amount you usually use.
