Play a greener Holi to help protect the planet Earth – N.F Times


Celebrating Holi in a more environment-friendly manner can significantly contribute to Earth’s wellbeing. Here are some suggestions to save the planet.

Natural Colors: Encourage the use of natural, eco-friendly colors made from plant extracts, flowers, and other organic materials. These colors are safe for the environment and do not harm plants, animals, or water bodies.

DIY Colors: Prepare colors at home using ingredients like turmeric, beetroot, spinach, and henna. This not only reduces waste but also ensures that the colors used are non-toxic and biodegradable.

Water Conservation: Make limited use of water during Holi celebrations. Instead of wasting water in large quantities, opt for dry Holi celebrations or use minimal water. You can also organise waterless Holi events with activities like singing, dancing, and sharing sweets.

Community Celebrations: Organise community events focused on eco-friendly Holi celebrations. This could include cultural performances, storytelling sessions, and workshops on traditional crafts and art forms.

Plant Trees: Take the opportunity of Holi to plant trees and promote greenery in your neighborhood or community. You can organise tree planting drives as part of the Holi festivities.

Avoid Plastic: Discourage the use of plastic bags, bottles, and other single-use plastic items during Holi celebrations. Opt for eco-friendly alternatives like paper bags, clay cups (kulhads), and reusable water bottles.

Cleanup Drives: After the Holi celebrations, organise cleanup drives to collect and dispose of waste as a responsible citizen. Encourage participants to segregate waste for recycling and composting.

Sustainable Decorations: Use eco-friendly decorations made from recycled materials or natural elements like flowers, leaves, and cloth. Avoid using plastic decorations that contribute to pollution.
