Alleviating pollution with #PedoWaliDiwali Campaign

The highly rising pollution levels post Diwali are a bitter truth of this prosperously celebrated ‘festival of lights’. Concerned by this perturbing pollution issue, SankalpTaru Foundation took an initiative to revolutionize the way Diwali is celebrated in India by instigating #PedoWaliDiwali campaign. The mission was to create an urge for a cracker free and pollution free Diwali to bring people closer to the nature and inculcate in them a sense of responsibility towards their environment. #PedoWaliDiwali is an initiative to encourage the communities towards mitigating the environmental havoc created after Diwali and celebrating the festivities by planting trees instead of bursting crackers and polluting the air. With a spirit of ditching the fireworks to commence an eco- friendly festival, good number of people turned up taking a pledge for green celebrations and planted trees with us.
