Since last 2 years, under the leadership of Mrs. Surekha Kulkarni, Powai Park, has taken the Ganesh Visarjan eco-friendliness drive to another level. They have an idol created from five auspicious metals called as Panch Dhatu Murti, which is worshipped during the festival. The other bigger idol is made out of eco-friendly fiber. Following the final Puja, the metal idol is ritualistically immersed in a water bucket. After this, the idol is cleaned, wrapped in a red cloth and stored in their office along with the other idol. Then the same idols are worshipped next year. Post the immersion, the water from the bucket along with the flowers is offered to the trees.
