What are green crackers and Where to Find Them ?
Recently the Supreme Court ordered that only crackers with reduced emission and “green crackers” can be manufactured and sold. The court observed that efforts have gone into producing such crackers.
“Green crackers” are so named because they “do not contain harmful chemicals” that would cause air pollution. Components in firecrackers are replaced with others that are “less dangerous” and “less harmful” to the atmosphere, says Dr Rakesh Kumar, director the Council of Scientific & Industrial Research’s National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (CSIR-NEERI).
Buy Green Crackers
There are no ‘green crackers’ available anywhere and, if the Supreme Court’s order is enforced by police and the administration, none of the crackers that traders have stocked up can be burst this Diwali
If you want to buy low emission crackers, go to the UK. There are the usual traditional firecrackers. The court’s decision might be applicable from next year,” said distributors.
