There is an option of setting up the eco-friendly idols of Lord Ganesh at home so that water pollution can be minimised. Let’s take a look at five ways environment-friendly Ganapati idols can be prepared at home.

You should arrange the assortment of dry fruits carefully to recreate the divine shape of Lord Ganesh and also edible glue to keep it in place. It is a unique offering to the deity.

3. Belgian Dark Chocolate

Belgian dark chocolate is another luscious food product which can be used to make Lord Ganesha’s idol. Many people have tried giving this method a try including Harjinder Singh Kukreja. Harjinder is a Ludhiana-based restaurant owner. In a conversation with a media portal recently, Harjinder said that 10 chefs of his restaurant sculpted Lord Ganesha’s idol using 40kg of Belgian dark chocolate over 10 days.
