More than 40% of the waste created on Ganesh Chaturthi is plastic, which takes 1000 years to decompose.
Plastic waste is one of the biggest problems that we face today globally. There are more than 40% of the waste created on Ganesh Chaturthi is plastic, which takes 1000 years to decompose.
In our workshop we use Clay to build our Ganpatis. Clay comes from nature and dissolves naturally when it gets wet, so there is no harm done to our environment. Clay also absorbs carbon dioxide from the air around us which makes it good for our environment as well as for people living there! You will find lots of benefits with using clay statues like these ones such as being environmentally friendly since they do not require any harmful chemicals (like paints) to keep them looking nice for longer periods of time.
Take-away: Kids take home one Eco-friendly Clay Ganesha sculpture
At the end of the workshop, kids will have created one clay Ganesha sculpture. The best part? The clay can be dissolved in water and used to water your plants! No harm to the environment!
There's no need for waste with this activity! Any extra clay, we show the kids how to recycle the clay so that it can be reused!
The workshop is for Kids (3 years and above). Our instructor can explain what the child will create and how many hours commitment is needed from the child.
The young artiste will make his/her own ecofriendly Ganpati either through hand building or through our mold, and it can be painted it with home-made colors made from natural ingredients like turmeric and red vermillion powder. They can also add some of their favorite things related to Ganesha to make it look more attractive like his mouse or laddoos!
How will the Ganesha's look like?
Have a look at this video, showcasing the artistic Ganpatis created by the kids last summer.
