Today pollution has become one of the biggest menaces of our lives especially of people dwelling in cities. Rural to urban migration is happening at all-time record pace and our cities are not capable enough to accommodate such a massive population, over and above that our irresponsible lifestyle is destroying our cities. There was a time when first rain would bring joy and happiness on our face but unfortunately today it only brings out plastic waste and filth. Our rivers and seas are choking with plastic, out city drainage system are overflowing with plastic, yet we take pride in India being one of the least plastic consuming nations. One must remember plastic is one of the best inventions, it is for our irresponsible behaviour that has turned this great gift into a disaster. So banning plastic all together will not have any impact, but we must look for alternative solution step by step.
1. Always carry a bag pack or jute bag with yourself and refuse any kind of single use carry bags at shops.
2. Always carry water bottle, preferably metal bottles, you will be amazed to know every minute millions of water bottles around the world ends into our oceans.
This environment day, 5th of June 2018, let’s pledge to at least adopt and promote these 2 habits to make our planet a better place for generations to come.
