Eco-friendly is the way to go this Ganesh Chaturthi! Make way for Tejukaya Ganpati, the 22 feet tall Ganesh Idol which is made entirely out of biodegradable materials like paper, bamboo, mud, soluble adhesives and colours that will help with faster immersion. Tejukaya Ganesh Utsav has set an example by going completely green this year!
The idol took more than half a year to be fully completed and 15 workers were responsible for the making of this eco-friendly Ganesha. And one of the most important things is that this Ganesh Idol, will just take 45 minutes to completed dissolve in the sea and not leave behind any harmful materials.
The Tejukaya Mandal has decorated the entire place with cotton and paper and this has definitely impressed Mumbaikars. They have even asked devotees to donate pencils, pens, notebooks and similar things to flood-affected areas of Kolhapur and Sangli in Maharashtra.
Eco-friendly is the need of the hour and it is high time all the Ganesh Mandal took inspiration from Tejukaya Ganesh Mandal. They did their bit of saving the sea and the environment. By completely giving up thermocol and plastic it’s a step closer to saving mother nature.
Every year after Ganesh Visarjan, beaches like Girgaon and Juhu are left polluted with Plater of Paris Murtis, Plastic decorations, thermocol items and many such things. This year, let’s make sure that we give back to the sea more than we take.
We believe that if Ganesh Mandals like Lalbagh Cha Raja take the eco-friendly way, it will be followed soon by every other Mandal in the city. If you think so too, do let us know in the comments below!
