Be Natural, Be Green

Hey All. It’s the festival time and hope all of you might be having good fun preparing for the Diwali festival. So how do you generally celebrate Diwali every year? Decorate your homes, prepare delicious food and feast on some mouth watering sweets, shop, burn crackers etc. etc.? But have you ever thought of celebrating it in a green, eco-friendly way? There might be many who must have received Diwali greetings through e-mails, msgs etc. and some of them must have asked to celebrate a Green Diwali. But how can you actually celebrate Diwali in an eco-friendly way? Here are some of the initiatives which can be taken at individual level to make this Diwali a less polluted and nature loving but at the same time much more interesting and fun filled festival. 1.      Reduce: When asked what we should do to avoid noise and air pollution on Diwali, most of the people suggest saying No to crackers. But it’s actually very hard to do so. What we can actually do is use the eco-friendly crackers which are available in the market. Eco-friendly crackers are made of recycled papers and produce less noise. The other thing that we can do is simply minimize the use of crackers. Believe me. If we all minimize the use of crackers each year, it will make a good difference. And not just reduce the cracker consumption. But simply reduce the amount of things you use. For example, look for recycled paper, wrap the gifts with ribbons instead of tapes so that the paper and be used once again, avoid shopping unnecessarily. Reduce consumerism. It will reduce the use of raw materials used in their production. 2.      Recycle: Have you ever made paper lamps at home for decoration? Try them out this Diwali. They look great. Simply collect some old wrapping papers or recycled sheets and see their magic. Dispose of the unwanted things at your home by not throwing them “away” but sharing them with underprivileged people.  3.      Rethink: Think twice before you buy. 4.      Refuse: the things that we do not need at all. 5.      Remember nature: This diwali bring home nature. Decorate your home with Rangolis made of leaves, flowers and organic colours. Search your kitchen. You’ll get lots of colours. Just avoid using colours made of synthetic materials. Try to follow these five R’s this Diwali and celebrate the festival with greater joy and fun.. Also, share with us any idea that you have to celebrate the festivals in greener way. Wishing you all a very happy and Natural Diwali!!
