Festive Guide: How To Have A Kickass & Eco Ganesh Chaturthi Celebration At Home

    The ongoing pandemic has bogged down all our Ganesh Chaturthi plans, especially in Maharashtra. All of us will have to forgo our rituals of visiting pandals and listening to the melodious drums and tunes of dhol-tasha bands and many other things. Don't let your spirits dampen. Make sure you stay indoors and celebrate the festival within the cozy confines of your home with joy and pomp. Here is a fun and festive guide to having a kickass and eco-friendly Ganesh Chaturthi celebration at home.

    Get An Eco-Friendly Ganesh Idol

    While Ganesh Chaturthi is a joyous occasion, it is sad to see our water bodies get polluted with hazardous PoP idols. This year, LBB pleads everyone to embrace green idols and opt for an environment-friendly celebration. We found several places in Pune that sell eco-friendly idols. Since the celebration this year is going to be a low-key affair, we suggest you order your idols online. Refer to this list of where to find eco-friendly idols in Pune.
