From Green Crackers to Earthen Lamps; Sustainable Ways to Celebrate a “Green Diwali”

Diwali, the festival of lights, is one of India’s biggest and most awaited festivals. For most, the festival means sweets, decorations, rangolis, and firecrackers, while to spiritual souls, it represents “victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance.”

Considering the rampant spike in air pollution every year a day after Diwali, the question arises – Are we moving away from the real spirit of the fiesta of light? Many people today are rooting for a “Green Diwali” with an intention of protecting the environment.

Here are ways to make your Diwali an Eco-Friendly Affair;

Beating the Devil with Green Crackers!
Though busting no crackers at all is the best way to ensure Green Diwali, but if your festival is incomplete without firecrackers switch on to “Green Crackers.”

The CSIR-National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (CSIR NEERI) defines green crackers as fireworks/ firecrackers made with a reduced shell size, without the use of ash, low usage of raw materials and/or additives such as dust suppressants to reduce emissions with specific reference to particulate matter.

In order to identify green crackers you can look for the CSIR NEERI logo on the fireworks packaging.

Though busting no crackers at all is the best way to ensure Green Diwali, but if your festival is incomplete without firecrackers, switching to “Green Crackers” is an alternate eco-friendly option.

No to Plastics, Yes to Earthen Lamps
Diwali comes from the Sanskrit word Deepavali, meaning “rows of lighted lamps”. The nation is going Vocal For Local, an initiative that has not only brought us closer to our roots but also empowered the small-scale artisans of India.

Instead of plastic diyas, LED lights, or fancy candles, switching to Clay Diyas is perhaps the best way one can celebrate Diwali.

Colours of Organic Rangoli

No Indian festival is complete without enough colours to brighten the days and nights. Unknowingly, people end up using rangolis colours that are non-biodegradable and harmful to health.

Using Organic or natural colours can ensure your Diwali ends up being an eco-friendly affair. Moreover, one can also use natural ingredients like flower petals, cinnamon, turmeric powder, flour, etc., as some of the best eco-options for Rangoli.

Gifting Health to Your Loved Ones

Everybody is bored of Soan Papdi. How about switching from regular gifting options to ones that can contribute to health and the environment? From Plants, seeds, and handmade products, to khadi items – one can send things that could be a ‘Gift’ to not just relatives but also to the Environment.

Since Diwali comes with a massive cleaning drive across every household rather than throwing away the items that are not needed anymore, they can be donated to the needy instead. The festival of lights calls for “Knowledge over Ignorance” – so instead of turning a blind eye to the evil of degrading practices, adopting ways for a sustainable celebration seems to be the right way.

दीपज्योतिः परं ज्योतिः , दीपज्योतिर्जनार्दनः ।
दीपो हरतु मे पापं , दीपज्योर्तिनमोऽस्तुते ॥
