11 Oct 2019, Diwali, the most awaited festival of lights is just around the corner. The 5-day festival this year starts from 23rd of October with the final festivities of Diwali on Sunday, 27th October. The festival coincides with the Hindu New Year and celebrates the triumph over evil, victory of the good over bad. While Diwali celebrates Lord Rama triumph over Ravana in today’s scenario Diwali has assumed a new significance – that of our personal triumph over the modern-day evils of pollution, chemicals, artificial products and achieving a pure inner self by becoming eco-friendly. So how do you become more eco-friendly this Diwali? Here are 5 ways to lighten up your Diwali this year.
1. Eco-Friendly Diyas – Diyas are one of the most important elements of Diwali. Conventional terracotta Diya is non-biodegradable and causes much harm to the environment. One eco-friendly option is to buy Diya made out of Cow Manure, Beeswax (paraffin free), Rose Petals, Rose Oil and topped up with Panchamrit (the holy nectar).
