Why Green Ganesh Idol for Ganesh Chaturthi?
Usually Ganesh for the Ganesh Chaturthi is decorated with artificial colours. The idols are made of plaster of paris material. The artificial colors are harmful to the nature and environment. These Ganesh idols are immersed into tanks, lakes and rivers that are nearby to the locality. This process of immersion pollutes the water. The materials do not decompose easily and these will cause the ground water to be polluted. As devotees in order to compete among themselves are increasing the size of idols and are using more colours to make the idol look good.
