Small Steps to Curb Pollution & Go Green!

Pollution is on high on our beautiful planet Earth.  Nature gifted us with majestic greenery, clean water bodies, flora, and fauna and maintained the equilibrium of the planet.

Population inflated and majority got educated. Their degrees proved wrath for the planet, Earth….because their day to day inventions & discoveries to ease the life of people snatched the glory of the planet.

Literally, the earth has transformed into a garbage due to drastic changes in weather and climate and water-bodies polluted to such an extent that the aquatic bodies are suffocated to death. The world is facing global warming and water-bodies are shrinking and the large glaciers are melting. Nature has come in a mood of fury, resulting in unexplained weather conditions, floods engulfing towns and cities, storms uprooting life and trees, increase in severe earthquakes, bad monsoons, wildlife and birds nearing to extinction etc. And, the high intellectual Man uprooted trees and greenery to install industries and increase production.

The planet did not lose sheen in a day or year, but the continuous attack on Earth resulted in Garbage earth instead of Green Earth.

The major reason for pollution of all types is due to human brain, which applied all its intellectual powers to use and did not think a little for Nature. Nature bestowed a majestic gift to all lives on earth but Man jeopardized in the race of achievements.

Now, when every now and then people are facing nature fury and have an inkling that the life on earth is at risk, then they have started blowing the trumpet to Save Earth and Work is in progress to save Greenery on Earth.

It will take years to combat the issue of pollution. Working towards it will be like a drop in the ocean but the continuous effort can bring hope to regain lost glory but in the meantime, many lives will be devastated. We should not lose Hope, it gives reason to Perform & Dream for a Better Future.

How our minimal efforts and lifestyle changes can bring back nature glory

Plant plants, herbs, and shrubs in your balcony or garden. Rear them well. In open land, plant trees and even roadside area can be used for planting trees. It balances the Eco balance of nature. Even you can grow kitchen herbs and kitchen garden using an open patch of areas of your house.

Don’t throw wet or dry kitchen garbage. Store them in a large earthen pot or bury under the soil. It will transform to bio-manure and can be used for your plants. You save money because you don’t need to buy manure and kitchen wastes is recycled and garbage pollution controlled to some extent.

Don’t throw water which has been used for washing vegetables and grains. Use them to water plants, water-wastage will be controlled and plants will receive good nutrients, which will enhance their growth. If garbage wastes are recycled, then we don’t need polythene to discard wastes, in this way, we are saving money and planet.

Stop using plastic bottles and containers for water storage and ingredients. Plastics are neither good for health nor for the planet. It adds to garbage pollution because it does not perishes and adds filth to the soil. Replace them with glass or steel bottles and containers.

Use jute or cloth bags to carry articles, for shopping groceries and vegetables. Initially, you will feel botheration to carry, but gradually it will come into practice. Our forefathers did not use plastics and polythene, they carried “Jhola” and WE trying to boast our modernity brought non-degradable plastics in our daily life. Discard plastic bags and save drainage from clogs and getting choked, and from rivers and seas been soiled.

Avoid overuse of cars and bikes. Stroll to nearby markets to buy goods, fruits, and vegetables. It will save oil consumption, your hard earned money and the walk will keep you fit and healthy. You don’t require extra time to venture out for a morning walk or hit a gym. If maximum stick to this line, then there will be less jam in neighborhood market and it will take care of health and air-pollution…so only gain and gain…no losses.

Some people asked me, “Is small portion of green balcony and patch of land in the basement going to add greenery to the planet?”

My reply, “If in one society, all apartment people use their balconies into green spaces, then naturally, we can add greenery to a great extent. If a single drop thought that it was not enough for the ocean and if it would have dripped on the hot land, its existence would have perished, then and there. So, the effort of all is required to revive the majesty of our planet.”

I have done my take and here are the snaps, which proves my honesty towards Curbing Pollution & Saving Planet.

What I have adopted in my lifestyle, it is easy to strike and improve the health of the planet. Our health is proportional to the health of Earth.

Let’s pledge today, on this World Environment Day to do our bit to save Earth from Pollution of all Kinds. 

We may not gain instantly but in due course, our posterity will be benefited and will worship their ancestors for their kind deeds.
