    Ten-Second Takeaway

    A Mumbai-based NGO is turning festive season eco-friendly with its fish-food Ganesha idols.

    Festive With A Cause

    SPROUTS Environmental Trust is an NGO which aims to create environmental awareness among Mumbai students and citizens. In 2016, as part of their ‘God Save The Ocean’ campaign, they created eco-friendly Ganesha idols with fish food inside them.

    These biodegradable clay idols have been thoughtfully designed to be as environmental-friendly as possible, and are made of ingredients such as haldi, multani mitti, kum kum {vermilion}, geru and more organic colours. They are also filled with vegetarian fish food which will the idol is immersed.

    Usually, the idols we find in the market are lathered with toxic gold and silver paints that eventually dissolve into metal particles and choke the fish in the ocean, and they’re also made of non-biodegradable Plaster of Paris.
