It was once said by a great thinker & philosopher that you are nothing but trustees of this planet.
I agree with this totally & believe that it is our duty to keep our planet as beautiful & serene as it was when created by God.
In the past few centuries, we have grown by leaps & bounds in terms of industrial development & communication. But at what cost? We have exploited our natural resources endlessly.
We are only 1 of the lakhs of species on Planet Earth. But we have crowned ourselves Kings & Queens of this planet. We behave as if everything is made only for us.
If we continue to do so, there would be nothing left for the future generations. There will be no life other than human beings & what kind of life it would be?
Doesn’t look very good, does it?
But this is not an era of despair & disappointment!
All is not lost yet!!
We need not wear tree leaves & go & live in the jungle. What we need to do is take few small steps.
We are lucky to have information at our finger tips. There are articles, books, magazines, websites – all to show what we can do.
Some of the things we can do:
1. Avoid wastage, especially of water. Check that none of the taps at your home / office are leaking. Always close the tap fully.
2.Have bucket bath instead of showers.
3.Do not litter.
4.Plant a tree in your compound so that you can watch over it.
5.Use public transport whenever possible.
6.Think before you hit the print button. Always preview whatever you are going to print.
7.Use Cloth bags. You can design them & get it stitched by your local tailor. Trendy & Environment Friendly!
8.Use cloth napkins instead of paper napkins.
9.Whenever you are not using, always switch off your appliances. Do not keep them in Stand by mode.
10.Do not buy products which are made by killing animals, especially endangered species.
11.Do not take undue advantage of resources freely available.
Just choose one thing & stick to it. Take a pledge.
Be Aware & Spread The Awareness.
And together we shall make our Earth a beautiful planet to live in – for us & for our children!!!
