#GodSaveTheOcean | Advertising Campaign

Posted 12 months ago

A Mumbai based NGO that works to better the environment launched its #GodSaveTheOcean campaign in 2015. Through their campaign, Sprouts NGO, tried to create a Ganapati Visarjan Festival that didn’t harm the ocean life. During the festival millions of Ganapati idols are immersed into the ocean, which not only pollute the waters but also result in the death of many fish. 

Sprouts made their own environment friendly Ganapati idols, which were made out of fish food and therefore not harmful to the ocean. It was a great initiative and caught wind as it transformed the negative effect of this festival without challenging or disturbing traditions in any way.

  • SAT WINDER KAURPosted 11 months agoVry nice video
  • Minal BPosted 11 months agoThai is awesome, much needed and must needed. Abother idea that I have seen people is of having Eco friendly models immersed in just a bucket of water at HOME. Some mideals are made with clay and plant seeds, which after immersion grows into a plant in a weeks time. This should be shared and made to be followed by all, especially the big idols. Besides mother nature, Even the lord would be pleased by this. Gaṇapati Bappa Morya.

  • MeghaPosted 5 months agoGod, you really did save the ocean. Love you.
  • Abhishek PariharPosted 4 months agoGanesh Chaturthi started as a festival which had a motive to unite Indian (particularly in Maharashtra) against The British. So we can say that it was something that was brought into existence so that it can be served in national interest. What started with a patriotic message in itself turned into a trend and now into a menace. It has become too ironical that Our Vighnaharta Lort ganesha's Idols are becoming "vighnakarta" for our marine life. The basic idea of Visarjan is that the mud which is dug from water(clay soil) meets again with its origin. This can be done by simply doing the visarjan part at you home in a small tub. Large idols does not guarantee larger blessing from the god. With the water sources becoming scarce and majority of the population living along the coastline is surviving with fishing as their primary activity. Harmful colours and materials are not only harming the marine life, they are harming those who survive on it. And God is for everyone, not for a particular section of the society. Such initiative which focus on saving the water sources and the marine life are the need of the hour. If they are promoted by celebrities and becoming a trend people definitely gonna buy them. If such initiative spread in remote areas of our country also, like in rajasthan people follow this trend of visarjan and pollute last of remaining water bodies. Similar Initiatives are required during durga puja also. One must see the broader side of it. They are providing emplyment, saving the marine life, the fishermen community and our mother earth. So thank you so much Sprouts team for this #GodSaveTheOcean. We need more innovative ideas and a platform to share them and those must be funded by people who are so enthusiastic about the ganpati chanda. This time give Some chanda as your contribution to your planet. Because Goad made this world and he can only destroy it, our duty is to cherish and preserve his creations and not make him as an excuse to be a machine of nature's destruction because he never asked for it.
  • RiyaPosted 2 months agoBetter late than never applies to God Save the Ocean-Ganapati idol ad. Such an uprising should be applied to Bigger idols as well. People's awareness is compulsory and to be educated by such programs should be spread far and wide such that our oceans are safe and so the fish and our future generations lives.
