Celebrate Diwali with eco-friendly and plantable gifts with Whizzgrow Plantable DIY kits – a great way to celebrate a Green Diwali.

 

When I was a child, many moons ago, Diwali meant bursting crackers until the sky was ablaze with colour and gifting each other presents that were more novelty than useful. As I grew older, the true essence of the festival began to dawn on me; not overnight, to be sure. I realized that Diwali isn’t just about the lights and the sweets; it’s about the triumph of good over evil. It’s about celebrating righteousness by illuminating lives and sweetening relationships. And what better way to do that than by embracing gifts that are as good for the soul as they are for the planet?

The Evolution of Diwali Gifts, From Gold to Green

In the past, Diwali gifts often consisted of gold jewellery, sweets, and even gadgets. While these gifts were cherished, they didn’t necessarily contribute to a sustainable future. Times are changing, and so is our understanding of what makes a meaningful gift. This shift in perspective led me to explore eco-friendly options for Diwali gifting, not just for others but also for myself. It’s not just about the material value of the gift; it’s about the lasting impact it has on our environment and our lives.

What is the Eco-Friendly Diwali Concept?

The eco-friendly Diwali concept is more than just a passing trend; it’s a lifestyle choice. It’s about embracing sustainable practices that enrich both our lives and the planet. As our country celebrates Diwali in many ways, it is our duty towards ourselves and towards the futures of our children, to minimise the negative impact of the festival. A simple way to do this is by gifting consciously. And what could be more conscious than a gift that grows?

How Do We Celebrate a Green Diwali?

The idea of a Green Diwali is both simple and profound. It’s about making choices that are in harmony with Mother Nature. From the diyas we light to the gifts we share, every little action counts. So, how do we celebrate a Green Diwali? By choosing gifts that not only bring joy but also nurture life.

Choosing an eco-friendly gift is not just a statement; it’s a commitment to a cause. It may be a small step, but every little action counts towards building a sustainable future. And when you choose a sustainable gift such as a DIY planter complete with seeds, pots and soil, diyas made of earth-friendly materials, or even greeting cards made of recycled paper, you’re gifting an experience – one that educates, enriches, and enlightens, making it a perfect fit for the eco-friendly Diwali concept.

The First Time I Gifted an Eco-Friendly Diwali Gift

I remember the first time I gifted a loved one an eco-friendly Diwali gift. It was to my niece, an 8-year-old with a budding interest in nature. The look on her face when she opened the box to find a DIY planting kit was priceless! She was thrilled to find that she could grow her own Tulsi plant. Over the weeks, I saw her nurture it, and the joy it brought her was akin to the joy of watching a firework, but without the environmental cost. This was a green Diwali gifting idea that truly touched a heart and made a difference.

Likewise, I gifted a similar eco-friendly gift to my elderly neighbour last Diwali, and it has become a topic of our daily conversations. He updates me on the growth of his Marigold plant, and the excitement in his voice is palpable. It’s not just a one-time gift but an ongoing relationship with nature, making every day a little brighter for him, and every Diwali just that much greener.

The possibilities are endless, and each choice you make contributes to a greener planet.

In Closing – The Green Diwali Movement

Last Diwali, my neighbours and I decided to go all-in on the green Diwali decor ideas. We pooled in funds to buy multiple DIY planting kits and distributed them among the kids in our community. The result? A local ‘Green Diwali Fair’ where kids proudly displayed their growing plants. It was heartwarming to see the community come together in the true essence and spirit of Diwali, to celebrate the triumph of good over evil with light and nature.

As we move forward, let’s make every Diwali a green Diwali. It’s not just about one person making a change; it’s about all of us coming together to make a difference. After all, the best gift you can give this Diwali is the gift of a sustainable future.
