Eco-friendly Alternatives to Firecrackers


India is set to celebrate Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights. Firecrackers, a traditional aspect of this festival, is now slowly declining in popularity, given the concerns about air pollution. Here are some eco-friendly alternatives to firecrackers.

Eco-friendly Sky Lanterns

Opt for lanterns made from biodegradable materials. These lanterns can be a beautiful and environmentally conscious way to light up the night sky.

Glow Sticks

They give the effect of sparklers when they are waved and offer a safe, non-toxic, and easy-to-use alternative to traditional firecrackers. Crack them to activate vibrant colours, and use them to create patterns, wear them as accessories, or arrange them in decorative displays for an affordable and playful celebration.

LED Dance Show

For a vibrant festival experience, consider an LED Dance Show where choreographed dances with LED wires on black clothing create a dazzling effect at night. The sparkling colours and unique performance add an interesting twist to your celebration.

Seed Crackers

Bursting into vibrant flowers and fruits when ignited, these are crafted from biodegradable and recycled paper containing plant seeds. These crackers let you contribute to nature by scattering and planting seeds that can flourish into thriving plants.

Balloon Firecrackers

 These are simple to make and can be easily DIY-ed at home. Fill up the balloons with sparkles, biodegradable colour powder, or paper flakes and hang them around the house. When burst, these balloons will dribble sparkles and colour all around the place.
