Festival should be celebrated as per tradition not for show off. So basic is celebrate it in way it was celebrated in past with all basics like buy it from traditional idol maker which mostly is clay made, use decorations made up of local traditional material, use traditional lighting lamps, do use local fruits and vegetables for offerings and consume same. Immersion should be as per locally suitable traditional site. more  
Right tips. I understand now some clay Ganeshas are made in such way that the idol has plant seed in it. After the end of the pooja, just keep it in a pot and pour water. Slowly, a p[ant comes in that place. Beautiful idea. I am sure, even those who are in small flats can keep the idol in a small mud pot and put some dhaniya seeds or some other seeds and it will be a healthy practice. more  
All festivities including Ganesh Pooja are for the well being of the individuals doing it and also the society at large. Therefore whoever is celebrating should make it a point to do it in such a way that it will not harm the environment and also other members of the public. more  
All society groups made to celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi should make only one ecofriendly Ganesh murti for Pooja, immersion, rather than making multiple murti. I personally would rather visit a temple and do Pooja and not stress environment by creating murtis, even if it's biodegradable. more  
Very good tips. more
