5 Must-Do Things After Holi Celebration to Show Your Environmental Concerns
The festival of colours bring such happiness and connections among people that it makes it's way into our favourite festivals. However, no matter how difficult it is for us to contain our excitement, it is also our duty to protect and save the environment that we are so evidently destroying.
No matter what your religion is, Holi is literally one of the most awaited festivals in India. The festival of colours bring such happiness and connections among people that it makes it’s way into our favourite festivals. However, no matter how difficult it is for us to contain our excitement, it is also our duty to protect and save the environment that we are so evidently destroying. While activists and the Government have taken up issues like saving water, the rest becomes our duty. While you might exercise caution during Holi, people tend to forget their work after the celebration is over.
1. Make sure you clean up the wood and all the eatables that you throw in the bonfire that you burn a night before playing with colours. A bonfire already causes a lot of air pollution. However, not interfering with your religious beliefs, we can only ask you to burn a smaller bonfire and then clean up when the bonfire is done burning. It will greatly help.
2. While you cleaned the bonfire bits a night earlier, it wouldn’t hurt if you cleaned all the plastic you use to throw water balloons, right? Plastic is a highly polluting agent. It causes soil pollution as well as water pollution. But more importantly, it comes back and harms us more than anyone else. So it only makes sense that we take care of ourselves by making sure that the plastic goes in the trash instead of lying around on the roads.
3. Although a lot of people are now switching to organic colours, it is not available to everybody. Organic colours don’t do much harm to the people, animals or the environment but the chemicals used in normal colours are quite harmful. It is advisable to clean your house, or the society terrace or the ground or anywhere you played colours.
4. Animals become victims during festivals, be it bursting crackers in diwali or being coloured in Holi. People don’t go easy on them. It is time we took care of that and changed it. It won’t be easy to stop all the people from throwing colours on strays, but you can still make it better by giving these strays a bath in order to get the colour off them. This can be your least bit to save those innocent animals.
5. Not everyone chooses to play on this festival of colours. Some people choose to rather stay at home and not get involved. However, can we ask these non players to choose to help the others in cleaning up after the festival is done? It is your society and environment too and let’s face it you won’t like it either when you walk into a pile of plastic bags first thing the next morning, right?
6. This is especially for the people who choose to celebrate the festival at a concert or a community party rather than in your building or society. Please don’t leave your concert hall or ground without helping the volunteers. It isn’t just your festival, it’s their too. Help them a little, Give them a hand. Be their hero.
