Deepavali is upon us, and we know that most of you are looking forward to enjoying this festive season without the use of fireworks and in the most environmentally friendly way possible! Here are some of our recommendations on how to entertain guests while being environmentally conscious.
1. Sustainable Decor
It doesn’t have to be dreary and boring to light up the place without using firecrackers. The traditional firework displays will be quickly forgotten with the vast array of vivid and vibrant candle holders and lamps in the market.
2. Throw A Sustainable Party
Plating up the Deepavali season is a time for food, sweets and snacks. Swap out your plastic plates and cutlery with eco-friendly alternatives for your Deepavali celebration. There are many options available in the market such as bamboo, palm leaf, Jackfruit fiber and banana fiber plates.
3. Sustainable Gifting
Are you stumped as to what to gift your loved ones? Journals made with recycled paper, upcycled accessories and organic skincare products all make thoughtful additions to your gift hamper. Present them wrapped in newspaper or put them in a fashionable cloth bag.
4. Avoid Use Of Plastics
Reaching for the plastic bags to put your return gifts in? Check out cloth options instead. Your guests will appreciate their reusability during their next visit to the grocery store.
5. Don’t Waste Food
Cleaning up! Chances are, there’s leftover food at the end of the party. Instead of cling wraps and aluminum foils, use a beeswax food wrap or an organic cotton bag to store food while keeping them fresh for as long as possible.
With eco-friendly habits becoming increasingly common, going sustainable has never been easier. Let us celebrate in an environmentally sustainable manner, and do your part to restore the sustainability of the environment. So, share your best festive wishes, happiness and the eco-conscious message of a sustainable lifestyle. Goli Soda wishes all the readers a very happy Diwali!
