Thank you very much for visiting our site. We do hope to build this website further and have enough people to actively volunteer and participate to lead the change in undoing much of the damage that we have all inflicted on our natural environments. Besides encouraging all to plant and adopt trees, our awareness drive emphasizes on the following easy-to-do lifestyle changes:
  • Use paper sensibly - avoid taking notes in notebooks: Take notes on the back of paper that needs to be recycled. Recycle after it has writing on both the sides.
  • Use separate collection bins for plastic waste and other perishable waste (food item leftovers) at your home. The idea is to differentiate and separately process biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste.
  • Don’t spill oil and other chemicals down the drain, since they may contaminate the water table and would eventually pollute the water sources.
  • Install your air-conditioners away from direct sunlight. Alternatively, cover it with an improvised shelter which can cover it from direct sunlight and also help it to run efficiently.
  • Carry water containers when you go outdoors, instead of buying water bottles. This will not only help you save money but the use of plastic bottles can also be cut down
  • Rely on your pair of feet and WALK or bicycle as much as you can, at least for the short distances. Use public transport whenever you can
  • Don’t be averse to car pools. This is a virtue which will also help you spare anxiety whenever fuel prices shoot up
  • Keep the amount of waste generated by you and your family to the minimal level. Waste not, want not.
  • Buy essentials in bulk wherever possible.
  • Refuse plastic bags; carry a canvas/cloth bag to the store or elsewhere.
  • Use CFL bulbs as a light source as much as you can. Make it a point to switch off all unused sources of electricity consumption in your household
  • Cut up old clothes to use as rags. Use them instead of paper tissues, paper napkins, paper towels etc
  • Use bowl or bucket water for washing, cleaning cars, water plants etc. Refuse to pipe water for such activities
  • Don’t just dispose off and throw out things you have used. Reuse (be inventive!), re-cycle (be responsible!), give it to someone who still sees value in what you are about to throw away.
