Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, November 7

Director, Environment, and Chief Conservator of Forests, UT, Debendra Dalai, in collaboration with the Chamber of Chandigarh Industries, has supported innovative ideas for an eco-friendly Diwali.

“We are saying no to crackers. We are encouraging planting different seeds instead, which are useful, healthy and beautiful,” said Dalai.

He appreciated and extended support to young environmentalist and entrepreneur Tanika Bansal, who has come out with innovative ideas of ‘beej pataka’ and ‘diyas’.

Tanikais is promoting different types of seeds in the shape of chakri, anaar, potli bomb, sutli bomb, ladi, pop pop, phooljhadi and rocket, which can be planted in pots or gardens. These will bloom into different types of flowers and vegetables like broccoli, asparagus, red/yellow capsicum, beetroot and zucchini.

Dalai also encouraged use of hand crafted ‘diyas’ made from ghee and bees wax, which are good for the environment, as they purify the air humans breathe.
