7 ways you can celebrate an eco-friendly Diwali this year | Gabruu

‘Diwali’ is a much-awaited festival of the year for all the Indians and is just a few days away from now. No matter where we are, every place seems to be decorated with lights and you feel the positive vibes all around you. Amidst all the vibrant lights, don’t forget to celebrate an eco-friendly Diwali this time.

Here, we are jotting down some of the ways in which you can celebrate your Diwali the way you want to but with a little twist with the eco-friendly concept. Have a sneak peek right here:

Opt for earthen diyas and lamps

Who wants to add extra electricity bill? Reducing your electricity consumption is not only beneficial for your budget’s health but also for the ecosystem. This Diwali, opt for traditional earthen lamps to decorate your house.

Make rangoli with flowers or natural colors

You can use the rice powder for white colour, turmeric for yellow colour and coloured rice for red colour and so on. You can also use marigold, roses and other flowers for decorating your Rangoli.

Add a twist to diwali party with biodegradable plates/glasses

It is natural that food and drinks are to be served and this eventually leads to a lot many dishes to be cleaned. To counter this problem, we suggest you opt for biodegradable crockery. It looks chic and elegant and will also save you all the effort to clean up post the event.

Use Leftover Material to Make Crafts

Using the old sarees and dupattas to make colourful curtains can add grace to your home. Paint the old newspaper and twist them into certain shapes to create wall hangings. Hang a bell at your doorway in place of doorbell for some days.

Hand-made gifts

Hand-made materials not only looks classic but it also adds glitters on the face of the receivers. So this Diwali bring smiles with the hand-made gifts like decorative baskets, handbags and much other stuff.

Do Something for Society

Spend time with needy children; gift them new clothes and other goodies. You can play games with them. For you, it might not cost anything, but for them, it would be the time of their life.

Avoid crackers rather organize events with family

Play indoor games and organize activities that would involve all the members of your family. You can organize the gathering for the family where all the members can spend time together.

Wishing you a happy and prosperous Diwali!
