Colours are the smiles of nature – Leigh Hunt
Holi, the festival of colours! It’s one occasion that makes everyone come under one roof and enjoy playing colours, splashing water and enjoying some amazing delicacies. Celebrated with dhol-tashe and colours, Holi is all about celebrating the win of good over evil.
Each colour signifies beauty, culture and tradition. Bound by no age or gender, right from a kid to an elderly, everyone enjoys this festival.
However, it’s the time we understand the harms these festivals cost to our environment. It’s time we think about the future generation and how we, as responsible citizens of India handle this delicate situation of climate change and environment terrors.
Why one should play eco-friendly Holi?
How to enjoy eco-friendly Holi
Most Holi colours are oxidized metals or industrial dyes mixed with engine oil. Try to make colours at home using natural ingredients like Turmeric and Chandan. Organic colours are also easily available in the market.
We all know the situation at hand with the amount of plastic wastage created by humans. Waterguns and balloons will create unnecessary garbage and also pollute the water. This will lead to a lot of waterborne diseases like jaundice, cholera and typhoid in the elderly.
Applying colour or throwing water balloons on animals is straight no! The chemical powdered colour has harmful effects on the animals, which often leads to forever blindness.
Make sure you apply oil all over your body. This will help you wash the colours easily. Also, ensure nothing goes inside your mouth or any sensory organs as it may lead to severe illness, especially in the elderly.
Let’s work together to protect our society and the environment by playing eco-friendly Holi.
