No immersion needed for these Eco-Friendly Ganeshas

Eco-Friendly Ganeshas 2

The awareness for Eco-friendly Ganeshas is increasing year after year. With this in mind, many organisations and individuals keep trying to make the festival more eco-friendly. They have been coming up with innovative ideas to make idols that will not harm the environment. Keeping up with the eco-friendly theme for Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations, an idol of the elephant-headed God was made using banana flowers in Chennai. Around 7,000 banana flowers were used to build the mammoth 10-feet idol which took around 10 days to construct. The idol is constructed in a seated position with a swastika sign on its blessing hand.
 Devotees gathered in large numbers to witness this unique idol and clicked selfies with it. In Maharashtra, where the festival has a greater significance, many idols have been created using clay and other degradable materials. In Bengaluru, Sathya Sai trust made a Ganesh idol using sugarcane. After the 10-day festival ends, the final immersion of Lord Ganesha’s idol is not required for this type of Eco-friendly Ganeshas. At the end of the celebrations, the sugarcane which is used to make the idol will be distributed to the public.
