- But hold on to your urge. There are other many ways to keep our house looking bright, beautiful and illuminated. Why not buy materials and make DIY lamps and garlands?

3. Biodegradable Plates and Glasses:
- Guests will come many in numbers during any festive occasion. So it is natural that food and drinks are to be prepared and served and ya this eventually leads to a lot many dishes to be cleaned and washed.
- At such situations or time, we tend to veer towards using disposable plates and glasses, which unfortunately are very damaging and bad to the environment.
- To recover that and resolve both your problems, we suggest you options for biodegradable materials like plates and glasses. It looks royal and elegant and will also save you all the efforts which you have to give to clean up the utensils.
4.Gift a plant instead of sweets: (celebrate eco-friendly Diwali)
- Gifting is a given during Diwali times and you just cannot visit your friends or relatives house without a gift to give.
- Instead of carrying sweets or other gifts like dress etc… eligible items. (which again come packed in plastic), why not gift some decorative plants or seeds to be planted.
- There are many options available. Gift a plant this Diwali and set a new trend altogether and indirectly you are saving the environment.
5. Say NO to Crackers: (celebrate eco-friendly Diwali)
- Say no to crackers for quite a while, this motto has been a recurring theme of Diwali celebrations. However, there are more than one considerations that make this the best approach for everyone to adopt.
- Crackers cause a lot of air and noise pollution. Since we now live in close proximity of each other (in apartments that are separated by only a few steps)
- We must not only worry about our family but also of the families around us – many of whom may have old grandparents or pets in the house.
- However, children cannot celebrate Diwali without crackers. One way to resolve this dilemma is to celebrate Diwali together as a community – that way, everyone gets to burst crackers, but fewer crackers are burst collectively.
- Another step that can make it a be eco-friendly enjoyable experience is to have a mutually agreed decision upon deadline which means after which no one should burst crackers.
6. Give back to society :
- Instead of spending hours bursting crackers or drinking and partying, spend some time with underprivileged children.
- Donate old clothes, stationary etc, play games with them or make sweets at home and celebrate Diwali with them.
- You can also visit an old-age home and spend time with the elders sharing stories
- listening to songs from old movies and eating good food and giving them a gift which is useful to them.
