Cow dung coins are made from the dried excrement of cattle. They are commonly used as a fuel source in rural areas where access to traditional fuels such as wood or coal is limited. The logs are made by collecting fresh cow dung and spreading it out to dry in the sun. Once the dung has dried, it is compressed and moulded into coins, which can be traditionally used for Holika Dahan as well as fuel for stoves or open fires.
Cow dung coins are considered a renewable and sustainable source of energy as they produce less greenhouse gas emissions compared to fossil fuels and they can be easily produced on a small scale. Additionally, cow dung has been used as a source of fertilizer for crops due to its high nitrogen content, helping to improve soil fertility. In conclusion, cow dung coins provide an eco-friendly alternative to traditional fuel sources, promoting sustainability and reducing the use of non-renewable fuels.
