Avoid using Chemical Colours
Earlier the Holi colors were prepared from the flowers of trees like Indian Coral Tree (parijat) and the Flame of the Forest (Kesu). However, with the arrival of dry chemical colors, people stopped taking pence for extracting the flowers colors and with time the use of chemical and aluminum paints increased during the celebrations. These chemical dyes not only prove extremely dangerous to one’s skin but are also hazardous for environment as lots of pollution is caused during its preparation as well as after their mergence with water cycle.
Eco Friendly Bonfire
The burning of fuel wood in order to perform the Holi Bonfire or the Holika Dahan presents is another factor related to Holi that raises a factor of concern. Umpteen useful fuel wood is wasted during this ritual, this not only leads to the cutting of trees but also unnecessary pollution in return. In stead of wooden logs, it would be ideal if people use this Holika Dahan for burning their waste material.
