Diwali is celebrated across the length and breadth of India. Friends and family come together, homes are decorated, and every city and village has a festive feeling. We love this festival because we get a long break, extended play hours, get to feast on sweets and are pampered with gifts.
Over the last few years, we have become more aware of the effect Diwali has had on our environment and health but at the same time not aware what ecological steps we can take to make it better for the future generations.
Starting with the upcoming Diwali, here are some changes I am going to inherit to keep essence of Diwali alive and yet make it more fun and eco-friendly.
• Say YES to Green Crackers.
• Opt for energy-saving LED lights vs low-quality options.
• Make your home greener by avoiding plastic.
• Eco — friendly Gifts.
• Avoid using private vehicles.
When you look at these changes, they may seem easier said than done. However, making Diwali greener is the need of the hour, especially for many cities which suffer from post-Diwali smog.A small action from your end can add up to bigger results. Let’s shed the darkness of ignorance and come forward to do our bit for society.
Let's Not Forget Our Nature This Diwali, Celebrate An Eco-Friendly Diwali.
