This Diwali, you can try a different kind of diya besides the traditional earthen lamps. You can try out designer diyas made in an eco-friendly way, decorated without any harmful colours or adornments.

Cow Dung Diyas 

Cow dung diyas are a completely natural and environmentally friendly product. Clay obtained for traditional diyas can still erode the soil. Compared to clay, cow dung is more sustainable and ecologically friendly. After it is used, the remaining part can be mixed with water to make plant fertilizer, claim some of the manufacturers.

Bamboo Diyas 

This Diwali, you may use 'Bamboo Diya' to adorn and light up your home, office, and favourite spots. This eco-friendly bamboo diya is handcrafted by artists from Tripura, largely from Sepahijala district's south Taibandal. One set costs Rs 240, according to information supplied by the Chief Secretary of Tripura on his official Twitter handle.
