Say no to Durga idol visarjan in rivers and ponds - Promote eco friendly visarjan!
This petition had 180 supporters
Idol immersion in water bodies extensively pollute the lakes and rivers. The colours are toxic and minerals like mica mix with the water, turning it unfit for regular usage. Idol immersion without following the proper instruction of CPCB is one of the major causes of water pollution in festivals like Ganesh Chaturthi and Durga Puja in Mumbai and Kolkata respectively. We all spend a lot on the consecutive Puja days but least are we bothered about the eco-friendly immersion of the idols. Especially in Kolkata, the quality of groundwater and river water are degrading very fast.
We come across Durga Puja themes promoting sustainability and green initiatives. It would be great to see these Puja committees practicing green immersion techniques in reality. These very small initiatives would retain the health of the hydrosphere.
