5 Reasons why you should use a Vodafone Eco-ponds in Pune this Ganeshotsav

1. Vodafone has set up Vodafone Eco-Ponds, a temporary water tank setup equipped with a promoter and a life guard at 8 Vodafone stores across the city. This will help citizens across the city celebrate and immerse Ganesh idols in an environment-friendly manner.

2. This tank is fitted with IOT device that helps track the water level in it once the Ganapati idol is immersed. The concerned family/Housing society/Organizing Committee gets an SMS alert. Vodafone has given the celebrations a technological bent by using internet of things (IoT) technology to gauge the depth of eco-ponds in the various parts of the city and receiving information about the immersed idol.

3. Supported by Pune Municipal Corporation and National Chemical Laboratory. Punekars can visit any of the stores with their Ganesha idols, where they will be assisted to carry out the visarjan. Vodafone stores located at JM Road, Hirabaug, Wakdewadi, Aundh, Karve Road, NIBM Road, Kalyaninagar, and Kharadi will be equipped with Vodafone Eco-Ponds.

4. Vodafone has also set up a Mobile Visarjan Van.  Mobile vans are visiting select large housing societies, old age homes, where it would provide Visarjan facility exclusively to the residents of the society

5.  Devotees can just dial 7391000000 to locate all the Vodafone Eco-Ponds.

Teaching future generations to be more eco-friendly and concerned abou the environment while celebrating festivals with full gusto. The key idea for this initiative is to dissolve the Ganpati idols in the pond such that people do not immerse it in the river bed, which eventually pollutes the river bed and disturb the marine life equilibrium.
