Each year, countless Plaster of Paris idols of Ganesha end up in India’s lakes, rivers, and ocean. Once submerged, these idols disintegrate, creating an impermeable layer on the water bodies’ bottom and ultimately reducing the water’s oxygen, increasing the water’s acidity, and disrupting the aquatic ecosystem. That’s why Khula Aasman has created the Clay Ganesha Campaign which encourages the use of natural clay, an eco-friendly alternative which is also therapeutic to work with.
