If you are passionate about nature and want to celebrate an eco-friendly Ganesh Chathurti/Pillayar Chathurti on Sep. 5, have a look at the Seed & Coconut Shell/Vettiver Ganesha idols made by Harith Tharang.
Seed Ganesha is the normal clay-based Ganesha idol with a twist. The creators have kept a few methi/palak/keerai seeds inside the idol – once your festivities end, you can place the pillayar idol in a pot and water it regularly to see the idol slowly transform into plants! Learn more..
They have also created Ganesha idols out of natural bio-degradable materials like coconut shells, vettiver, etc. See how these idols look and know more about them from their facebook page.
If you are in Chennai and want to buy these green/eco-friendly alternatives of the ganesha idol, or want something very different, visit Harith Tharang shop @ 42, Bazulla Road, T. Nagar, Chennai – 17.
