The Environment Planning and Coordination Organisation (EPCO) has launched the Green Ganesha campaign from Tuesday at MLB Girls College and Government Secondary School, CTO, Bairagarh, Bhopal.

On this occasion, the EPCO team imparted training to the students to create clay Ganesha idols. Students were also given information about the side effects of immersion of the idols made of Plaster of Paris and statues made using chemical colours.

Clay was made available to the students in the workshop. The students were taught to paint the idols with natural colours like turmeric, Ramras, Gerua, Khadiya Mitti etc. While making Ganesha idols, the students were also told about seed Ganesha technique.

 In this technique, they were told how to keep the seeds of fruits, flowers and vegetables in the statue and to develop these statues in the form plants after immersion in the pot.

EPCO Superintending Engineer JP Namdev told that the city’s water source is getting polluted constantly due to increasing population and residential areas.

It is the responsibility of every citizen to protect these sources from the point of view of environmental conservation.
