Each day, approximately 10,000 silver foiled paper cups used for Ganga Aarti pollutes the river Ganga in Varanasi

The only way we could solve this problem is by making devotees use cups that are environmental-friendly. Act for Ganga is a movement that has been initiated to create a behavioral change in people to opt for bio-degradable areca palm leaf cups for Ganga Aarti.

The Importance of River Ganga

Known as Ma Ganga —Mother Ganges—the river is revered as a goddess whose purity cleanses the sins of the faithful and aids the dead on their path toward heaven. But while her spiritual purity has remained unchallenged for millennia, her physical purity has deteriorated as pollution imposes an ever-growing burden. Ganges’ divine waters purify those who immerse themselves in the river. It is even said that a single drop of Ganges water, carried by the wind over a great distance, can cleanse a lifetime of sins. In cities along the river, daily dips and floating deepams are an important ritual among the faithful. Many cities are considered sacred and serve as pilgrimage sites. Many people from all over the world travels great distances to scatter the ashes of loved ones in the Ganges to attain salvation.

Act for Ganga is a people’s movement


Every one of us has a role to play in revitalizing Ma Ganga. Contribute to the cause by donating areca palm leaf cups. Every bio-degradable cup you donate will replace a silver foiled paper cup in the Ghats as well as improves the livelihood of its producers.
