We are leaving our carbon imprints all over, leaving precious little of the resources for our future generation. With the World Earth Day just behind us, it is a good time to take stock of the damage done and find ways to quickly arrest further damage to the environment and planet Earth.
Surprisingly, for the amount of destruction all around with garbage mounds piling everywhere, increasing pollution and traffic levels, it requires fairly simple exercises to correct the situation. The golden mantra of reduce, reuse and recycle has to be incorporated in every aspect of our living.
Reduce: reduce the amount of stuff that comes into the house. It might be interesting to note that a large percentage of purchases go unutilized due to improper planning and impulse buying. Buying re-fill pouches for repeated purchase of the same item is one way of reducing the number of bottles or cans coming into your house.
Re-use: old bottles and cans can be re-used to store odds and ends. Fancy looking bottles can be creatively given a make-over to fit into the living room or used as planters in your balcony. Old curtains or cushion covers that are no longer required can be made into interesting cloth bags or even framed to adorn your wall. Similarly, old clothes can be given to needy people like your maid/car cleaner, driver or cook.
Re-cycle: After Bangalore suffered the garbage crisis a few months back, the segregation of waste for recycle has become mandatory for all the households. Indeed, if we can segregate the recyclable waste, precious resources can be brought back to life. Water needs to be conserved and can be recycled for use. Many individuals and apartments have their own sewage water treatment and rain harvesting plants.
