Diwali is the celebration of lights to mark the return of Prince Rama to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile. While it is traditionally celebrated with firecrackers, there are ways to make it special for people who want more eco-friendly options.
Here’s our list of 3 things that will help you celebrate an eco-friendly Diwali.
1. Natural Rangolis
Designing Rangolis is an integral part of Diwali celebrations and if you do not want to use chemical Rangoli colours, you can opt for natural variants.
Use kumkum, haldi, coffee powder, and rice powder for colours and decorate your Rangoli with flowers. It will light up the room and create an enigmatic aroma for your guests.
2. Give hand-made gifts
Why add to the plastic and e-waste count on Diwali by gifting people plastic items and electronics?
Just make thoughtful hand-made gifts for your loved ones and make their Diwali extra special. Here’s a video to help you get an idea:

Plastic gift wrapping papers are not the best option for the environment. Then, why not pick an eco-friendly option?
Wrap your gifts with regular newspapers and paint or decorate them to give it a festive look and feel. Be the trendsetter in the family.
