Richa Chadha who’s often known for supporting various causes has now come forth with the upcoming festive spirit of Ganesh Chaturthi to support the initiative of Eco-Friendly Ganesha. Richa visited the unique centre of Tree Ganesha in Mumbai today which is an initiative by Dattadri Kothur, who started the concept of building Ganesha idols made of material which dissolves into becoming a tree one can plant at their own homes/spaces. This unique initiative definitely is one of its kind that help support and further the idea of the festivities while also giving importance to saving the environment. Richa and Dattadri built an idol at the workshop as a part of the activity.
Speaking about this Richa said, “I’m happy to be supporting this. This initiative is something I have heard of in the past but this is the first time I have physically been part of something like this. I think it’s high time we need to stop polluting the environment in the name of festivities and be careful as soon it would be too late. It saddens me to see such state of the beaches, roads during Ganesh festivities when burnt crackers, dirty beaches are the outcome of the Visarjan. So I think Tree Ganesha is a perfect solution that helps not only save the environment but also add value to the environment by planting trees.”
