Celebrate Holi the Earth-Friendly Way
Holi is the most awaited festival in India and is celebrated with great joy, happiness and delicious festive food. Traditionally, it is celebrated with different customs and rituals across the states. According to the Hindu calendar, the festival is celebrated in the month of Phalguna. The festival of colours is acknowledged through different types of customs in different states like Dol Purnima, Rangwali Holi, Dhulandi, Dhuleti, Manjal Kuli, Yaosang, Ukuli, Jajiri, Shigmo, or Phagwah.
Along with the joy, one should keep in mind the impact this celebration creates on your body as well as the environment around you. Using toxic colours might damage the skin and cause redness, rashes and discolouration. Using water and chemicals ultimately damages the nature around us as well. Instead, this Holi celebrates it the earth-friendly way with Amala Earth. Use organic gulal made with herbs, flowers and organic kitchen ingredients that do not cause any harm to your skin, and are also pet-friendly so you can include your fur friends in the celebrations too.
