Background


All around us we see various pandals and house-holds celebrating the much loved festival of Ganesh Chaturthi. While the celebrations are a happy occasion, the aftermath of the celebrations are quite unhappy with non-bio-degradable material littered all around us.

As an effort to educate the people on the importance to use eco-friendly methods to celebrate festivals, we at Nature Knights have devised this workshop. Nature Knights is a group that promotes eco-friendly activities from nature walks, to workshops with over 20 year long experience in this field.

So to welcome our favourite God, Lord Ganesha, in a eco-friendly and natural way we are teaching participants to make their own Ganesha idols and how to reclaim and reuse the clay after the ‘Visarjan’. Besides this we will be educating them on using recycled, bio-degradable material for decorations.
