Muslims all over the world have been celebrating Eidul Fitr
for the last fifteen hundred years to express their thankfulness to Allah after keeping 30 days fasting in the month of Ramadan.
On this occasion they wear new clothes, they cook traditional dishes, offer special prayers, greet each other, pay money as Eidi to younger relatives and do party.
According to their financial position they arrange dinner and lunch parties and also go for dining out. This is one of finest religious events in the world when nothing against environment happens like it happens in religious festivals of Holi and Diwali of Hindus and Eidul Adha of Muslims.
5 tips to go green on Eidul Fitr
Here are 5 lovely tips to go green on Eidul Fitr to avail it as big chance to be thankful to Allah and careful to Nature.
1. Go for outing together to cut car pollution
If you need to go out for any picnic or dinning out you can go together in one vehicle or car. On Eidul Fitr there is a public holiday in most of the Muslim countries while Muslims living in other countries also do off on that day.
2. Ecards instead of paper cards to avoid waste
A few years ago sending paper greeting cards on Eidul Fitr to friends and family was very common. But now after growing use of internet most Muslims across the globe send electronic cards (ecards) to each other and share their moments of rejoicing.
We should promote this habit and fully switch over from paper cards to ecards. In this way less garbage will produce because ultimately we treat paper Eid cards as waste after the Eid is over.
3. Recycled greeting cards to reduce garbage pollution
In many parts of the world internet is not much popular and people still spend their life without it. In these countries there is no any concept of ecards. But they can make their greeting cards at their home with recycled paper and sheets.
In this way they can not only save their money but also avoid generating waste
if they discard their paper greeting cards after Eid is over.
4. Food as much as you need
5. Gift of sapling, a great idea
Though it sounds quite weird but change occurs gradually. So they should tag a sapling with their Eid gifts
which they present to their loved ones. Initially it may be taken as strange but they can promote this green habit gradually to make it part of their culture.
So these are the 5 lovely tips to go green on the occasion of Eidul Fitr. I am dead sure most of the Muslims would be following these tips and also I request them don’t take it as a burden and follow these tips to go green if they can.
But apart from all this serious debate a very happy Eid Mubarak to all my Muslim readers with the prayers for peace and blessings on them and on whole world.
