Dainik Bhaskars eco-friendly initiative Mitti Ke Ganesh receives overwhelming response across India

Dainik Bhaskar’s new eco-friendly initiative ‘Mitti Ke Ganesh’ has received an overwhelming response from its readers across the country.


During the just concluded Ganesh Utsav, through this environment friendly campaign readers were appealed to bring home Lord Ganesha’s idols made only of clay. This activity was intended to motivate people to not bring idols made of plaster of paris, which after immersion contaminates our water resources. Dainik Bhaskar readers were also urged to not immerse idols in local natural water bodies. They were encouraged to conduct immersions at their respective homes in a water container, and use this water to water their gardens or flower pots at home.


This was a Pan-India editorial and print campaign, covering 13 states and reaching more than 4.41 crore people.


Commenting on the success of this initiative, Mr. Prashant Kalyani, VP, Brand Marketing (National), Dainik Bhaskar Group said, “The Dainik Bhaskar Group has always taken the lead in social initiatives that contribute towards positive changes in our daily lives. In line with this tradition this year we launched the ‘Mitti Ke Ganesh’ campaign during the immensely popular “Ganesh Utsav” festivities. Religious leaders of various sects also joined this initiative and supported the cause. To further augment this message Dainik Bhaskar through its editions carried thoughts of these religious leaders explaining the merits of ‘Mitti ke Ganesh’.


This initiative not only enabled us to contribute towards protection of our environment, but also ensured that religious sentiments of people are duly respected. We are glad that we were successful in motivating people and the initiative received a overwhelming positive response from all sections of society.”
