  • Air pollution causes watery eyes, coughing, and difficulty breathing.
  • Soil pollution causes depression of the central nervous system, headaches, nausea, fatigue, eye irritation, and skin rash.
Impact Of Ganesh Visarjan on Environment: Dos and Don'ts During Ganesh Immersion Ceremony Ganesh idols are made up of plaster of Paris, cement, paints, massive decorations, and flowers. All these materials are toxic and will stay in the water bodies for a longer duration. They travel from one water body to another, posing a threat to the lives of aquatic animals. Thus, we can conclude that there is a significant impact of immersion on the ecosystem. The idols sink and dissolve over time by leaving all the wastage in the water. The wastes present in the water reduces the oxygen levels and creates a vast amount of water pollution. Reduced oxygen levels kill the fish, prawns and other aquatic freshwater animals. They often make the water poisonous, which can cause several skin problems, allergies, and other health concerns among humans and other creatures as well. Conclusion: Many measures have been taken by the government, NGOs, and other service organizations to make people aware of the harmful effects of the Ganapati festival. All these things may serve your purpose but will not make God happier. Celebrating the festival helps you to save nature and your life too. This is our attempt to make you all aware of the harmful effects of the immersion ceremony. We hope you all will follow all these precautions!!
