Reduce plastic pollution. We need positive parenting to reform lifestyle for a bigger change.We are educated and a responsible citizen. I made some rules for myself to reduce my plastic footprint. Not using plastic bags, straws and plastic tumbler were part of my lifestyle for many years. Plastic bottles had been on that list too. But I have failed occasionally. I am trying to give the same habit to my kids. And what better occasion to do the same than now. The whole nation needs to make changes in lifestyle.
This is my call for action, to every parent. Let us together give our kids some lessons for better lifestyle. Let’s help them build better habit.
Presently, Indian government is running a campaign to make India plastic-free by 2022 and has stressed on strengthening plastic waste management and recycling ecosystem in the country.
Indian government is planning to stop single-use-plastic. Single use plastic will not be allowed from 2 October.
The ‘Plastic Waste-Free India’ anthem has been produced by Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya Smriti Manch (PDUSM), a non-profit organisation which claims to be working on various social and environmental issues.
This is an innovative way to spread the message.
Let’s become active participants by bringing small changes in our lives.
Greenpeace.org are calling on people around the world to create a “Million Acts of Blue” — actions to push retailers, corporations and businesses to reduce single-use plastic.
According to them it is going to take commitments both large and small to tackle the scale of the current plastic pollution crisis, and we all have a role to play. Every action to reduce single-use plastics sends a message to the industry that it’s time to change. Single-use-plastic products are used for a few seconds but pollute our planet for a lifetime. We can no longer allow that.
We have all seen heartbreaking images of beaches covered with plastic waste and animals’ stomachs full of it. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and frustrated that in .
Every single visit to market makes me confused on what more can I do to reduce the use of plastic from my life and eventually do a little pay back to Earth.
Plastic products are all around us. The people controlling the machine won’t turn it off!
Why me, you and our coming generation?
Practically, some organisations, government body or few groups of volunteers can’t do the work. Every individual should become a part of this effort. Government will not come to our house to make things right. We can get better by making some changes in our mindset and lifestyle.
🌍We believe in a world where the land, sky, oceans, and water are home to an abundance of life. Earth where the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat is free of toxic by-products. We should give the same to our younger generation. An earth free of toxic by-product of plastic pollution. It is an ambitious plan, but with our passion, collective intelligence and participation, it is possible to rise to opportunities for change and make this vision a reality.
If you are still reading, that means, we share the same mindset. Let’s make it happen. In my next few posts I will share with you intense searches, that I have done. It was before setting my mind on why and how to proceed on this journey of changing some habits for a bigger change. Bag your opportunity.
Follow these simple ways, to start contributing towards cleaner Earth.
