Diwali is round the corner. It's that time of the year again when we'll be shopping our hearts out and it goes without saying that we'll buy decorative items for our homes.
Manu Bhaker, the young Indian olympian, has urged people to buy from local vendors while buying diyas herself. She shared a picture on Twitter too.
Netizens are supporting her and praising her efforts towards uplifting the economic condition of local vendors.

Add one more thing with this #Avoid_use_of_plastic_bags , whenever we are going for shopping, take cloth or jute bag with you, so that we can reduce the use of plastic too— Devang Jain 🇮🇳 (@dev_thakkar23) October 23, 2021
An important message, buy from local artisans first, fancy and expensive lights may bring smile on your face, but festivals are about sharing happiness, so make this festival happier for others too. https://t.co/vQ8CKVaMLY— ABHISHEK, 아비섹 (@AVIRAL96) October 23, 2021
