    As a nation, we are not doing enough to make our planet sustainable and eco-friendly. We need to start at home by following these simple steps:

    Recycle everything starting from paper

    Recycling is one of the most important environmental activities. Recycling not only helps to reduce the waste but also helps in creating a sustainable environment. You can start recycling by looking at your own home and making a list of all the things that you can recycle.

    Then, go through this list and check which items are recyclable by visiting The site has detailed information about what to recycle, where it can be recycled from, etc., so that you know exactly where to take them for recycling.

    Reduce electricity and water usage

    • Reduce electricity and water usage
    • Use energy efficient appliances.
    • Use solar power for lighting, water heating and other tasks.
    • Replace regular light bulbs with LED (light emitting diode) lights that use less energy to produce the same amount of light as regular bulbs.
    • Install a rainwater harvesting system to collect and store rainwater from your roof in underground tanks or above ground storage tanks. This will help you reduce the amount of water you have to buy from suppliers, which is usually expensive! You can also use this water for washing clothes or watering plants outside during dry spells. If there is no plumbing in your house yet then just put down plastic sheets so it doesn’t get dirty while collecting water outside (as long as it’s not raining).

    Upcycle glass bottles to decorate your home

    There are so many ways that you can upcycle glass bottles. Glass bottles make great vases, candle holders, and table decorations.

    You can also turn them into a lamp. Just collect some colorful bottles and put them together in any way that you want. The possibilities are endless!

    Avoid using plastic

    You might be surprised to learn that plastic is not biodegradable. In fact, it takes 500-1000 years for a plastic bag to degrade and pollutes the environment during this process.

    Plastic is made from nonrenewable resources like petroleum, which makes it nonrenewable as well. When we use plastic, we're using up our limited supply of nonrenewable resources without giving anything back in return.

    Plastic pollution causes harm to wildlife and ecosystems through ingestion or entanglement in debris such as discarded nets; by degrading into smaller pieces over time; by releasing toxic chemicals into the environment; or by simply blocking sunlight so that photosynthesis cannot occur.

    Opt for eco-friendly materials like bamboo, jute and cloth bags

    In today’s world, it is important to be eco-friendly. You can start with the way you shop and carry things around. Here are some ways in which you can make your shopping experience more environmentally friendly:

    • Use eco-friendly materials like bamboo, jute and cloth bags. These products are derived from renewable resources that do not require any extra processing or chemicals to make them usable for daily use. Bamboo is a natural material that is used for making many products such as furniture, flooring and even clothes! It grows quickly without using up too much water or other natural resources which makes it an ideal option when considering sustainability factors. Jute on the other hand comes from plants grown naturally so there should be no worries about depletion over time either! Finally cloth bags are another great way to go because they're reusable meaning there will never be any waste produced during their lifespan since they'll always get reused again after each purchase made at stores where plastic baggies aren't available!!

    Reuse plastic bottles as planters

    We can reuse the plastic bottles in our daily lives. When you remove the content from a bottle, you can make a hole at the bottom of it and plant your seeds or cuttings like ficus plants in it. Then secure the plant with an elastic band and place it in a sunny spot. Water it regularly. Remove when it grows big enough to be planted outside in soil

    Plant indigenous trees #VanMahotsav

    Planting trees is an activity that is typically done at a family level. When you plant the sapling, it allows you to connect with nature, and it also helps in reducing pollution. The best part about planting indigenous trees is that they require less maintenance compared to exotic trees.

    Indigenous trees are better than exotic ones as they provide shade and can help in maintaining the quality of air by absorbing CO2. They also help in preventing soil erosion and reduce the heat island effect on earth’s surface by providing shade which helps keep temperatures down during hot summers.

    If you are thinking why we need to plant indigenous trees then let me tell you there are many benefits associated with planting them such as:

    Don't waste food – plan and shop intelligently

    It is estimated that a family of four throws away about $1,800 worth of food every year.

    The following steps can help you reduce the amount of food you waste:

    • Plan and shop intelligently. Make a shopping list, stick to it and buy only what’s needed. Shop with a friend or family member so that everyone is clear on what they need before they go in the store. If you're buying meat, don't forget to look at the expiration dates; if there's any doubt about whether or not something will be edible by its "best before" date, err on the side of caution and throw it out!

    If we all do our small bits, we can make a big difference to our environment.

    If you're reading this, probably you care about the environment. The best way to get started is by doing your part in saving it. You don't need to be a scientist or an engineer; all that's needed from you is your willingness and some basic knowledge about what can be done to make this world a better place for us all.

    Let's start with the reasons why we should do something:

    • We want our children and grandchildren to enjoy their lives here on Earth as much as possible. As parents, we want them to live in a safe environment where they can play outside without worrying about chemicals in water or air pollution killing them over time. If everyone does their bit together then there will be less pollution, less garbage on landfills and fewer animals dying due to habitat loss so it will also mean less animal cruelty too! All these outcomes are good news for future generations because it means more natural resources available when needed most so they'll also have more food options available during hard times caused by climate change impact - especially due to increased global warming trends like El Niño events causing hurricanes/typhoons which destroy crops grown across tropical regions worldwide resulting in mass starvation deaths due lack access affordable foods year round even though farmers may try replanting existing areas again after each harvest season hopefully without suffering too much damage from floods caused by extreme weather conditions around planet earth due mostly caused by human activity like deforestation activities done during farming practices where trees cut down before planting new seeds/seeds planted first year=trees buried underground still alive inside ground level soil layer so after five years since initial planting date tree roots have grown deep enough into soil layers allowing them survive drought periods which occur naturally every four years approximately every decade if we consider average rainfall patterns observed over one hundred years of recorded rainfall records collected worldwide over many different countries including North America South America Asia Africa Australia Oceania


    We can all contribute to a greener India. The important thing is that we start today. What will you do to make a difference? Let us know in the comment section below!
