As the 10-day festivities of the Ganesh Chaturthi festival conclude, people bid an emotional adieu to their beloved Lord Ganesha as they immerse the Ganpati idols into the ocean or other natural water bodies. Ganesha may leave everyone's home after the festivities but the partially dissolved idols are found floating in the water bodies.

Social media has run several awareness campaigns and while there is room for improvement, several people have started taking an initiative to keep this Ganesh Chaturthi environment-friendly, whether it is by cleaning the seas and the beaches or by immersing eco-friendly Ganesha idols into a bucket of water or an artificial pond.
