In a bid to Save the World

Environmentalists are doing their job outright. They are putting in their will and energy to save the world from the ruthless damages inflicted to her from all corners of the world. But that in itself is not enough. There are things which all other common people can follow to show that they care for the mother nature.

First thing that comes to my mind is about the automobile emissions. Why doesn’t the government ask all states to follow the CNG route? It’s clean and cheap. The national capital has implemented it. But that doesn’t suffice. All industrial emissions are also a major concern and the government’s role should be there in asking them to reduce or recycle. All the constructions with jazzy looking glass buildings should be reconstructed or stopped. Glass buildings look good but they are a severe threat to the nearby surroundings and hence to the environment. Plastic usage has been another piece of concern. The large
retail shops like Big Bazaar and such uses bulk quantities of plastic as wrappers. I spoke to one of the employees in Big Bazaar about the plastic carry bags they use and said they should use paper bags. He replied that the bags they use are in fact naturally degradable. I haven’t checked out about the truthfulness of his claim but hope he is right. Wherever you go for shopping, you end up with one or two more plastic items in your collection. End result being each house has loads of plastic bags. There had been campaigns in newspapers in both ways. Usage of plastic is good as long it is reused or degradable. If either of this doesn’t happen, then it’s a threat.

In trying to correct the things, there would obviously be huge costs involved but compared to the cost of rescuing the environment its nothing. Our earth has aged now and very soon is going to die. Though that cannot be prevented we can at least slow down the aging process if controlled steps are taken at the right time. I feel that the right time is already over but as is said, it’s never too late to start a good deed.
