Ganesha Chaturthi is a festival which is widely celebrated across India. In this festival, people bring home idols of Lord Ganesha and offer prayers to the idols. After a few days, the idols are removed and immersed in the nearest water body. Many idols are machine made and are made of synthetic materials and colours. When these are immersed in water bodies, they pollute the water and cause great harm to the water and the organisms living in the water. As part of our work, we encourage people to celebrate the festival in an eco-friendly manner, by making idols purely of clay or mud and using colours made of natural materials.
Raksha Bandhan is a festival to celebrate the relationship between brothers and sisters. In this festival, the sister ties a rakhi (ornamental thread) to the arm of the brother and he, in turn, promises to protect her. Mukund used this festival to promote awareness of conservation. He motivated girl students of Zilla Parishad Primary School, Kodebarra to tie rakhis to trees on the campus with a promise to take care of the trees.
