If you want to celebrate an eco-friendly Diwali in 2020, please keep our tradition of using earthen diya. Most electrical lamps on the market are also made in China, so not using them can show your patriotism besides awareness of protecting the environment.

5 – Control your shopping bills

People tempt to purchase a lot in any festival, let alone the fact that Diwali is among the biggest days in Indian culture. Having said that, you should restrict your shopping as a way of how to celebrate eco-friendly Diwali.

To make your Diwali more memorable, let’s plant a new tree in your garden or bring more greenery into your house. However, make sure you understand which plants can thrive outside or inside your room.

8 – Donate items

Sharing is caring. We believe most people have many things that they hardly use anymore. They can be children toys, old household items or, most commonly, clothes.

You don’t need to donate money for the poor, just give them what you have at best. Before giving away your belongings, please categorize them into different bags. You can also wash or clean them before that. Please make recipients feel your respect when getting those items.

From the smallest activities as shopping at local markets instead of ordering online, to bigger community events as a competition of making handicrafts from recycling materials, all these actions should be encouraged to raise people’s awareness of environmental issues.

Considering the pandemic, all these events must strictly follow health protocols. Always wear masks properly and keep social distancing when going out to public places. It’s best if you can organize eco-friendly events on digital platforms.

10 – Share eco-friendly Diwali quotes and tips

The last strategy of how to celebrate eco-friendly Diwali is no doubt spreading this spirit to your friends and community.
