As we know the rituals of immersing idols is simultaneously a form of water pollution. The materials used in making of these idols are Plaster of Paris and toxic, non-biodegradable chemical colours. Gradually destroying the the water bodies every year with thousands of people immersing idols into it. Not only this, the idols are often decorated with colours that are made of heavy chemicals like lead and mercury. These chemicals on the idol double the destruction of flora and fauna.
Pragati believes in Swachh Bharat and has crafted one of a kind Ganpati idols that turns into a plant after immersion.
