Enjoy Green Diwali by Staying Clean

>> Nov 4, 2018



Diwali is all about lights, diya, flowers, crackers and a variety of innovative Diwali decorations. Homes get decorated with pretty lights, beautiful rangoli and lamps. Today, there are a number of ideas with which you can make decorations all the more interesting and beautiful. Of course, there lies a certain pleasure in offering your own home a touch of creativity.

A relative of mine recently invested in apartment in South Kolkata and is now in search of ideas with which his family can decorate the home. In this context, I have suggested him to go with the green Diwali concept for his new home this year. As we all know that Diwali is the festival of lights, so it is obvious that there will be diyas, candles and other forms of fire-related illumination in and around the house. Apart from this, the firing of crackers plays a very important role in this festival of lights. Of course, the joy of Diwali with family and friends comes with colourful lights and gifting sweets mainly.  Now, in order to enjoy a green Diwali, one needs to maintain the go green factor.

Here are some of the tips as follows:

Welcome Goddess Lakshmi with Clean House

Your first and most important step to green Diwali is keeping our environment both in and around clean. So, this is what I suggested my relative as well. With the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, people have not only started becoming aware but have taken initiatives for the implementation too. Both during and after Diwali, the amount of waste generated is huge and most importantly maximum of them are non-biodegradable, thus, ending up in a landfill.

With our traditional system, we all tend to choose the convenient options to enjoy the festivity, thus forgetting the long-term impact we face. To be precise, taking up the eco-friendly measures will always help us breathe. So, this Diwali, make sure you emulate the traditional rule of sustainability in order to obtain the concept of refurbishing and recycling.  

Welcome goddesses Lakshmi in a clean home where you have used eco-friendly ideas to decorate your house this Diwali and of course, continue the same thing the rest of the year.
·         De-clutter your rooms, especially the corners of your house so that you do not attract negative vibes.
·         Use earthenware diyas or lamps rather traditional clay pieces that do not leave little or maybe no carbon footprint behind.  Of course, for a brighter appeal, go for the hand-painted ones or just paint the diyas on your own using ecological colours.   
·         You can even buy rice paper just to design paper lanterns. In this kind of works, you can easily engage your family including your kids.
·         Get hold of old or used bamboo sticks to cut them out for candle holders instead of store bought candle holders.

These were the points shared with my relative and hope the same was helpful to you as well. Wishing you a Happy and Green Diwali!
