Green Diwali at CommonFloor

At CommonFloor, we believe it is our resposibility to contribute to the environment and society. We have been promoting green-living in Home, College/Schools and Offices.

This year, we are asking to celebrate eco-sensitive, green Diwali.

How to celebrate eco-sensitive diwali?
  • Share food, sweets and clothes with the lesser privileged.
  • Donate for relief operations in Karnataka.
  • Instead of individual celebration prefer community celebration in a open ground.
  • Instead of electric illumination for long hours go for traditional lightening of earthen lamps or diyas.
  • Reduce the amount of things we use.
  • Reuse the things we have in different forms until we have absolutely no use for them
  • Recycle items that are no longer functional.
  • Rethink the choices we make when deciding to buy something
  • Refuse things that we do not need at all.
You can contribute your own suggestions about green-living or Green-Diwali at
