Eco Makhar as a Gift To NRI

Festival celebration in India has unique aspects that just cannot be recreated elsewhere and Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the most loved and celebrated festival among all. Indians settled abroad still celebrate this festival with same joy and enthusiasm. Since being in foreign land many end up having a wooden Makhar which is later on difficult to store or end up not having a Makhar at all.

Thermocol Makhar are not only fragile but also dangerous for environment. Karwak offers you D.I.Y. Makhar that is environment friendly and also easy to store.Every parts are dismantled and stored in the seat which gets converted into a storage box, making it even simple to export or carry along.

Let’s give back to nature, what it has given to us.

Every year Ganesh chaturthi is celebrated on the day of bhadrapad shuddh chaturthi, where Ganesh Idol is installed and worshipped.  Our vedas and puranas have mentioned importance of this festival. Previously these Ganesh Idols and their makhar’s were made from clay, soil, natural colours and other natural material which dissolved in water easily without harming nature. But with increasing popularity and to add a glorifying touch people have started using Makhars that are made out of Thermocol.

After completion of this festival, in Maharashtra alone trucks full of thermocol garbage goes wasted and not a single piece is left worth usable. There is no process where these disposed thermocol can be recycled and neither they are degradable.

26oriPollution thermocol-waste

Karwak have come up with an innovative way to reduce this waste. We have created Makhar made out of 100% recycled Corrugated Paper and which can handle weight up to 15kg.


These Makhars are super easy to assemble and can be done by kids as well, helping them to participate in the family tradition in a creative way. They are not only easy to make but also easy to store. Each part of it can be removed and folded where base of makhar turns up as storage box, thus reducing storage space. Shop Now

You can enhance your decoration by adding a strong and bold colour back drop or go all natural and add plants and flowers accompanied with diyas and lamps.


This Festive season, let us welcome Ganeshji to an Eco friendly environment.

Karwak – Eco Matters

In a world that is continuously being piled up with toxic, plastic and other non-degradable waste, nothing is more hopeful than a product that can prove as helping hand in eliminating some sort of waste from the environment.

Karwak- Founded in 1997 by Abhay Kardeguddi with a concept to reduce carbon footprints and an initiative to offer Products and Services for environment friendly lifestyle. We came up with products made out of eco-friendly materials and after 19 years, today we have taken a step ahead to take our dream on a higher notch by going online with launch of our website

While finding perfect material to begin with the manufacturing process the other awaiting challenge was its design. Abhay along with his team came up with products that were not only nature friendly but also beautifully designed and long lasting.


Effects on Environment!

Day-to-day products like polythene bags, pen, clocks, folders, files, etc which are made up of plastic are used and thrown away without giving a second thought that it would just lay there for millions of years. Since plastic does not get decomposed for millions and trillions of years, they just tend to pile up or burnt up in order to get rid of it which later causes soil, water and air pollution.


Karwak offers you these products after eliminating plastic/ polythene. Yes! You heard it right. We have lot products that can eliminate use of plastic. Check them out below.
