Eco Friendly Holi- Save the planet!
One of the major festivals of India, Holi, is celebrated across the country with enthusiasm and excitement. It is all about fun and painting the country in vibrant colors. With that being said, let’s celebrate eco friendly Holi this year, using eco friendly products so that the festival is not only brightened with colors but it is also environmentally friendly!
Here are some of the tips on how to celebrate Holi in the most eco friendly way:
Switch to homemade colors
Colour is the most important tool of the festival. It is celebrated by using synthetic colors that are not only filled with chemicals but are also expensive and could even cause skin problems and allergies.
So, switch to homemade colors. It is simple to make colors out of turmeric, henna and sandalwood. By mixing these together; you can make natural colors to play Holi. The best part, the color stain is gone once you wash it off!
Put down the water usage
There are many parts in the country where people face water scarcity. People have to walk for miles to fetch clean water to drink. So, using less water will help in conserving this essential life-sustenance element.
Let us take a step towards conserving this natural resource by preventing its wastage and avoid using water balloons to keep the streets garbage free.
Plastic bags! STOP USING IT!
Plastic causes toxic risks to human health from its use to disposal and even beyond that. So, to protect the environment from plastic toxicity, use biodegradable products. If put down in simpler words, use eco friendly bags to protect our environment from the plastic wastes and its consequences.
During this festival, drinks are served to keep the body hydrated from the spring heat! Instead of using plastic cups and plastic straws, switch to eco friendly straws and eco friendly cups.
Some of the biodegradable products to make your Holi eco friendly are made from PLA (Poly Lactic Acid), CPLA (Crystallized Poly Lactic Acid), cornstarch and cassava.
Use of these eco friendly products will make you not only a responsible individual but also someone who is stepping towards bringing a positive change in the world.
