Where to buy and book online eco-friendly clay Ganapati idols in Mumbai

Ganapati idols made of Plaster of Paris are extremely harmful to the environment because during immersion of the idols the material does not dissolve in water for hundreds of years. It is therefore advisable to buy eco-friendly idols made from clay (known as Shadu), which dissolve within an hour of immersion. Supporting this eco-friendly activity is the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB). In collaboration with the Nirmaljyot Charitable Trust, MPCB has launched the Eco Ganesha program through which it is selling Shadu Ganesha idols at over two dozen outlets in the city of Mumbai and its suburbs.
