The Lee Pharma Company and its Units distributed clay idols to all its staff in Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam in an effort to contribute to environmental conservation and encourage people to celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi in an eco-friendly way.
On Monday, the Lee Pharma Company gave clay Ganesha idols to all of its employees at their Lee Pharma Units and Lee Health Domain Unit. The purpose of the event was to raise awareness about using eco-friendly Ganesha idols to safeguard the environment.
Speaking on the occasion, Management said that plaster of Paris idols, as well as the additional colours and chemicals, were causing significant environmental harm and asked its employees to utilise clay idols in mandaps and homes, as well as spread awareness in the community. They were also asked to use a bucket with water for Ganesh Visarjan and pour it to plants. Over a thousand clay idols were distributed.
Special pooja to Lord Ganesha will be offered at all its units today.
