Is festival celebration adding pressure on landfills?

Is festival celebration adding pressure on landfills?

India celebrates various festivals throughout the year! Be it home or offices, we all decorate it to bring the festival vibes and good energy for festival celebration.

Scrapshala' research concludes that all the decoration used during festivals are majorly single-use and made of cheap materials such as plastic, synthetic cloth, thermocol and toxic paints.

And we all know that first thing we want/do after the festival is over, is to discard all the decoration.

A huge amount of non-biodegradable and toxic trash is generated every 2-3 months throughout the year from every single house/office in this manner.

As a solution to this problem, Scrapshala started its initiative to bring eco-friendly decor alternatives for festival celebration that can be reused for years.

Christmas is just few weeks away and market will be full of Chinese ornaments with glitter paints. Imagine the havoc it causes to environment for just few days of celebration.

We really want to ask all big corporate houses to go for sustainable festival alternatives this year onward, especially for grandly celebrated ones such as Holi, Diwali, Rakshabandhan, Ganesh Chaturthi, Durga Puja, Christmas etc. and be the torchbearers for smaller ones.

Let’s make small changes that will pave the way for a better and beautiful future for all!
