"It is Waste to Wealth this Diwali for me… I hope Goddess Lakshmi approves. I have incorporated a number of upcycling ideas in the festive decor of my home; be it stitching cushion covers from pretty cloth scraps, using old lehengas as wall decor & making diya holders out of metal scrap and coconut shells. All my gifts this year will be wrapped in banana leaves and repurposed brown paper bags, embellished with old saree borders. Beautiful floating flower arrangements will be made using flower petals, from leftover flowers from a florist. What ever little bit I buy for Diwali, will be sourced from local artisans to support and encourage small businesses to make their Diwali a bit brighter too. Wishing everyone a very Happy & Eco-friendly Diwali."
"I like to keep things simple and functional. I tend to lean towards tiny aesthetic details that make big impact. I look for props & ideas that are re-usable. Here are some quick tips that are not only sustainable but light on the pockets too -Convert Old Silk Sarees & Dupattas into cushion covers. You can use these covers all around the year on other festive occasions too. Simply switch and style. Solar ambient flame lights for the balcony, porch or a terrace. Again, can be used throughout the year. They are easily available on Amazon. They charge themselves during the day and has a long battery life. Perfect to set the mood for all the merry making. Homemade fragrances - I love to create home-made infused essential oils with natural elements like cinnamons, oranges, rose petals, etc which can be used in diffusers for a good smelling home. Wish you and your loved ones a very Happy Diwali!"
