Tips for celebrating Eco-Friendly Diwali

Deepawali is one of India’s most important Hindu festivals, known as the 'Festival of Lights. After 14 years of exile (vanvaas), Lord Ram, Devi Sita, and brother Lakshman returned to Ayodhya to celebrate the festival of lights. Deepavali or Diwali means acknowledging the inner light of the self. It marks the awakening and awareness of the Inner Light, which is capable of overpowering the darkness. During Diwali or the festival of lights, the triumph of good over evil, light over darkness, and knowledge over ignorance occur. The celebration of Diwali evokes goodwill and happiness for all Indian communities. Bursting crackers is one of the essential Diwali rituals. No matter how impressive they look, firecrackers are not safe to use nor healthy. Indeed, Diwali can be a catastrophe for health in urban areas where pollution is already at its highest level. For a safe Diwali, healthcare professionals advise that we don't burst fireworks because of the harmful effects. 

Eco-friendly ideas for celebrating Diwali 

Confetti presents you with a list of creative ideas to celebrate the festival of light and happiness in a sustainable environment friendly way. There is a way to celebrate Diwali without damaging the environment. Enjoy an eco-friendly Diwali with your loved ones by following these creative ideas.

Organize and Celebrate in Community/Society

A community celebration gives more pleasure than an individual celebration. Gated communities in the city should enjoy the festival without causing environmental damage. The cost of organizing this celebration is not high for society. A fun activity can take place where you share goodies with loved ones. Patakha boxes provide a healthy alternative to bursting patakhas, as they come filled with nuts, raisins, cashews, pistachios, walnuts, and foxnuts. Send your family and friends our special Diwali patakha box to share the goodness of healthy snacks! 

Use the earthen lamps and diyas 

Instead of electrical/Chinese lights, decorate your home with earthen lamps or diyas.

Despite the need for oil for illumination, earthen lamps are hardly polluting.

The season encourages the spread of bacteria and insects that are harmful to human health. Upon lighting the fire of a diya, chemicals circulate in the air, which kills germs. Additionally, it reduces electricity costs. These lamps/diyas enhance the beauty of the house too. 

Confetti's Enlightened Box comes with dry fruits and brass diyas, making it an ideal corporate or personal gift for Diwali.  

Fragrances as gifts

Perfumes are also a gift of emotion. Perfumes are a way to show someone that you care and are affectionate towards them. Even those who rarely immerse themselves in scents find that fragrance is a good gift. By giving someone perfume, you can express the feelings and emotions you have for them. Gift your loved ones this Diwali a Mulberry Box from Confetti.
