Clean and green city
It is aptly said that cleanliness is next to godliness. One should be alarmed at the increasing numbers of factories polluting the environment and improper waste disposal. The amount of garbage filling the streets is beyond tolerable limits. So it is high time that everyone should take necessary steps in making the city clean and green. When every individual contributes what he can towards the environment, there will be wonders happening.
As a student, I will first inculcate the habit of throwing waste only in dustbins , within myself as well as my family and friends. Littering the roads makes the city very polluted and this can be reduced when people are aware not to do so. Ofcourse stricter regulations and laws are necessary. But as a student , I will do my best in spreading awareness on the necessity to keep our environment clean and green. Students can form teams and spread awareness on how to keep our places clean , explain about the diseases like malaria, cholera that may arise in filthy places.
People should be educated on the differences between biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste and they should be taught on how to dispose them properly. Proper waste disposal will help making the city cleaner. To make the city cleaner, students should take on the cause of planting saplings. Every student should start growing saplings at home or in nearby environment. One should also take care of things like watering etc. In these days when deforestation is beyond control , individual measures like this is necessary.
With the help of schools and local municipality, students should also distribute saplings to people and encourage them to join in this green movement. Students should know , follow and advocate the 3R rule – reduce, reuse , recycle. One should realise the lack of resources today and should reduce the usage of unnecessary luxuries. A careless attitude of neglecting things and disposing as waste can be in fact used again. This conserves money as well as invaluable resources.
Simple things like converting junk to usable items , like a plastic bottle as a pen stand , are simple yet effective methods in changing the city towards a greener path. Then , one should recycle and use certain things which will reduce wastage. People should be taught on the dangers of plastic and alternatives like paper, jute products. Using public transport than private transport whenever possible will help reduce per capita pollutant emission. Every individual contribution makes a huge difference. After all, it is the tiny drops that make a mighty ocean.
