Our environment is in dire need of help so this Diwali season let’s do our bit to save it from all kinds of pollution (noise pollution, plastic pollution, air pollution etc). Here are some basic things you can do celebrate a noiseless, pollution-free and eco-friendly Diwali.
1. Say ‘no’ to crackers.
While crackers have been an important part of Diwali celebrations, it’s pretty evident that it does nothing for the environment. They are just loud, noisy and dangerous and they just add to the existing pollution.
2. Light up diyas in your house.
Painting and lighting up diyas all around the house with your family and friends can also be a fun activity. Try it! This way, you’ll save the environment and also help poor artisans earn their living.
Try to avoid buying sweets from the market, they are loaded with sugar and artificial colours. But, if you still want to buy sweets from a shop, take your own container and avoid using cellophane and other packaging products.
10. Avoid using festive lights to decorate your house.
Opt for fresh flowers like jasmine, marigold, rose, and lily to decorate your home and to feel the festive vibes.
