What is the need to use eco-friendly Ganpati idols?

As Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated all over Maharashtra and also in some other states, thousands of idols are bought every year. Most of the idols are made from POP that spoils the water.

Besides this large number of firecrackers are used. This leads to air pollution, as harmful gases and toxic substances like Bariun, Sodium, Mercury, Cadmium, Nitrate, and Nitrite are released into Atmosphere. The celebration of Ganesh Chaturthi leads to an increase in the level of harmful gases in the atmosphere.

Water pollution is the major problem faced during Ganesh Chaturthi festival. Ganpati idols are made from POP that takes several months to get totally dissolved. Also, colors used in Ganpati idols Contains chemicals that lead to water pollution.

Besides this waste of coconut, flowers, fruits, camphor, thermocol, plastic, etc. also causes water pollution as devotes throw this waste into the water bodies. This too causes water pollution.

What we can do to reduce the environmental impact during the Ganesh Chaturthi festival?

  • Avoid using chemical paints containing harmful colors and dyes.

  • Don’t use materials like thermocol or plastics for decoration which are not degradable and which do not dissolve in water. Instead, you can use biodegradable items like plain paper or colored paper for decorations.

  • Remove flowers, garlands, clothes, plastic and other decoration items before immersing the idols. Distribute food items like coconuts and fruits to the poor. 

  • Make a compost of all the biodegradable items including flowers, etc. Flowers can be mixed with the soil which will help the plants in your garden.
