Eco Friendly Ganpati Decoration Ideas for your House
Ganesh Chaturthi is a festival where decorations play an important role in bringing in the festivities. However, these decorations can be the cause of a lot of plastic pollution during the Ganesh visarjan, so there is a strong need to look at alternatives. We can still keep the festive spirit alive with some of the eco friendly Ganpati decorations, but we also play our part in preserving the health of the planet!
For covering your room in decorations, you can avoid a lot of plastic waste by switching to fabric buntings! Disposable décor adds to a lot of plastic waste during the festive season, either through the packaging or the décor itself, making these fabric buntings a great alternative. These are made of scrap cloth, also ensuring that fabric waste is recycled and not sent to landfills. Maintaining the quality of the buntings is relatively easy, since it is made of cotton and jute. Once you’re done using the product, you can shred it into small pieces and send it along with your wet waste! These buntings are a form of simple Ganpati decoration ideas, but can light up a whole space.
