Is burning of fire crackers really a tradition?? There lies a very big question for all those who claim that the burning of cracker to be religious and traditional. Diwali, which is known to be the festival of lights and celebrated to commemorate the victory of good over evil does no where propagate the burning of crackers and harming the environment. Why can't we have an eco-friendly Diwali? This Diwali pledge for eco-friendly fire crackers and other sparkling and blasting ideas for Diwali celebrations.
Below are some interesting ways of Eco-friendly Diwali celebration which you can incorporate to contribute in the positive change:
Diwali preparation in our houses starts months before, beginning with the cleaning of house and moving all the unnecessary stuff out of the house. Replacing the old things like, curtains bed sheets with new ones and refurnishing our houses. However we often forget that the things that seem not to be useful for us might be someone else's necessity, so this diwali instead of dumping the waste out of the house get connected with NGO's like 'Goonj' or 'Neki ki Deewar' that help you utilize even your dumped item for a cause.
Diwali is the festival of lights; earlier people used to lit handmade diyas and decorate their houses with natural lights and candles. But as technology developed new and modern lights started replacing the traditional diyas and candles. So, this Diwali 2018 try to avoid the use of Chinese lights and opt for smokeless diyas, handmade diyas and homemade candles and contribute the nation's economy.
Most of us are unaware of the fact that the tradition of making rangolis originated not as a way to decorate our houses but to share our food with insects and birds. Since diwali is all about sharing and caring opting for making rangolis the natural way using haldi, kumkum, and rice powder is a very interesting way to contribute your bit. So ditch the use of chemical colours and go natural this diwali. You can use rangoli making stencils for a variety of designs.
There are a number of pair of 3D glasses in the market, that makes every light around view like an explosion. Many environmentalists call it by the name 3D patakas. These glasses are pollution and noise free. These days keeping up the pace with the theme of green Diwali cracker manufactures have come up with electric crackers that emit no pollution. These crackers when lit produces light and sound of bursting crackers but does not explode that the people would love to see. These can also be reused several times.
Diwali is a festival that brings everyone together and exchanging gifts on Diwali has been an age-old tradition. However wrapping those gifts in plastic might not be a good idea and we need to let go it. Paper wrappers or recycling old papers to a fancy gift packing using coloured ribbons and glitters is an awesome gift wrapping idea.
Spending lavishly on the firecrackers and wasteful materials has now become a status symbol. People spend a lot on Diwali celebration buying all sorts of expensive Chinese lights and fire crackers. Acts like these are not only frivolous but also harming Mother Nature as well as our health. Instead of wasting so much money on crackers and lights, this Diwali 2018 let us pledge to brighten the life of someone in need and bring a smile to his/her face.
