Dia Mirza has worn many hats from model to actress and has garnered a huge fan following along the way. But this time, it's not her acting that's brought her into the limelight. The star is an environmentalist who does her bit for sustainability. She is a UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador and United Nation's Secretary for Sustainable Development Goals. But the actress doesn't only spread the message, she makes a change at home too. Recently, Dia did her bit for the environment by arranging a zero-waste birthday party for her son Avyaan Azad's birthday bash. Avyaan turned two on 14th May.
Dia Mirza made the zero-waste birthday bash a success by using recyclable and reusable products and decorations. She used reusable paper lanterns instead of plastic balloons and chose cutlery of reusable cups, bamboo straws and tissues. Along with reusable decor items, the set-up also included Avyaan's toys which gave it a personal touch while discouraging single-use products. For entertainment, she arranged a colouring workshop with organic colours and pottery. The tablecloth had natural linen, and upcycled cloth buntings as decor and waste segregation was also practised. The return gifts were made from natural fibre, making them environment-friendly.
The star always makes it a point to create awareness and contribute to the environment in some way or the other. Dia goes the extra mile to make a positive impact on the environment, from participating in beach cleaning drives to planting trees. At IIFA Awards 2023 in May 2023, the actress on being spoken to about the partnership between IIFA and the United Nations, said to a publication, "I am very grateful for this partnership. One of the goals is the 17th goal of the sustainable development goals and to use the medium of communication, the creative art, the vacuum of the culture. And the fact that I engage with so many people, so many diverse people across the globe of course primarily trans of Indian cinema and also just lovers of the art. And to be able to convey the sustainable development goals, and the urgency of every individual to adopt the goals and understand what really these goals are. There are many people out there that don't know what are sustainable development goals. I really believe that this is going to be a powerful partnership to help spread that awareness and will moments on the goals."
