In continuation to its efforts to spread the message of ‘Go Green’ over the years, Nahar Group organised two workshops for its ‘Our Green Ganesha’ initiative on September 6 and 7 at Nahar International School, Chandivali, Mumbai. The Eco-décor and eco-friendly Ganesha Idol making workshops witnessed participation from over 300 residents from Nahar’s Amrit Shakti Township. The objective behind organising the workshops is to encourage people to adopt the old traditional ways of creating various eco-friendly makhar decorations and Ganesha idols with the use of shadu clay, instead of using POP (plaster of Paris) which after immersion causes severe damage to the aquatic life and environment.
Manju Yagnik, Vice Chairperson, Nahar Group, said, “With people now becoming more eco sensitive and aware of the importance of protecting the natural resources, we are happy to see more and more people supporting ‘Our Green Ganesha’ initiative, and enrolling themselves to learn to make eco-friendly Ganesha idols and décor.”
Furthermore, the Group will also be making special arrangements for visarjan of eco-friendly Ganesha by setting up an artificial pond for 10 days at the lawns of Nahar’s Nectarfield in Nahar’s Amrit Shakti Township. This water with dissolved eco-friendly material will then be used to water all the plants in the township as a gesture of giving back to nature.
