Every year thousands of Ganesh idols are immersed into the water reservoirs causing tremendous amount of pollution and harming the environment and marine life.
The main threat to the water bodies from the statues are the material used in making i.e. POP.
POP is a very harmful and toxic material that does not get submerged well into the sea and at times is often washed out by waves on to the shore, where dozens of broken idol pieces are found.
Many environmentalist and social organisations have raised their concern over rising of pollution under the jargon of festivities. This is why it is advised to switch to Eco-friendly products/ways to celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi.
Eco-friendly Ganesha idols are made up of sustainable, environment friendly material that easily get submerged into the water resources and not harm marine lives. There are available in various harmless – toxin free materials such as clay(mud), Plant, Paper etc..
