Environment & Earth PreservationvQAHOIIcul
Seva marg conducts activities like tree plantation, conservation of trees, forts, water bodies and campaigns and awareness programs for cleaning of rivers, preservation of water and its reuse, waste management and other initiatives for global warming. Sevamarg encourage celebrating festival like Diwali in environmental friendly way like E-Diwali without the use of firecrackers to control and avoid noise pollution.
Another example is Sevamarg’s eco-friendly Ganesh festival initiative which includes creating Ganesh Idols from clay with seed of tree which is dear to Lord Ganesh inserted in it instead of buying big idols made up of plaster of Paris. Further on the day immersion, it is advised to immerse idol into small bucket of water at home itself and later plant it. The whole idea behind this initiative was to avoid water pollution and use of chemical for making the idols and second important benefit is, within few days, seed will become plant that is cultivated later in farm. Also Self-employment is provided through orders for eco friendly clay Ganesha, sky lantern, homemade Rakhis etc.
