Abstract

Enter a Temple, Church, Mosque or Gurudwara in India the first thing you will probably notice is the abundance of flowers at the place of worship. There are flower sellers at the entrance, flowers are offered by devotees in temples and are left unused and therefore become waste. According to many religious beliefs, flowers that are offered during prayers are sacrosanct and cannot be dumped into the garbage once they wilted. These flowers wastes can be utilized to produce organic compost and thus help to save environments from pollution caused by the improper disposal of flowers wastes.
