    We have to protect our mother nature if we want to give a good life to our kids. Because of global warming India is in high danger.. There are quite a few cities where this year draught was prevalent. If we do not plant enough trees, soon there will not be enough water for us to use.
    Let's start doing our bit.
    1) plant some ornamental plants or money plants at home.
    2) buy organic plant kits available in markets and plant chillies coriander at home.
    Believe me it give immense amount of satisfaction to you see the seedlings grow. Let us grow up with the plants!

    @Sayantani Ray Lovely post, Sayantani. Money plants are really amazing, they not only look great but they also grow well indoors.

    Nature is our mother, she gives us everything selflessly and we feel it's our right to get resources free of cost and forget our duty. She doesn't demand too much in return, we have to just stop exploiting and overusing resources. Posting messages and pictures on social media just on world environment day will no way help in saving nature. We have to be a responsible citizen each and every day by minimising unwanted use of water, electricity, paper etc. We can take small steps like not littering , spitting on the road to make swatch Bharat abhiyan a success.
    As a family we try to protect mother nature in following ways-
    1- We have replaced plastic bottles by copper bottles.
    2- Segregate dry waste and wet waste
    3-.We created awareness among other residents of the street to not throw the garbage at night and dispose it when garbage collector comes.
    4- We take cloth bags to bring vegetables and avoid buying plastic.

    @Rashmi Beautifully put, Rashmi. Love the solutions. We can easily implement these in our lives. Thank you so much!

    @Mano Ranjani This is my house top. Few steps that we took care to protect our naturewith in our premises are
    1) filled up our home with interior plants which purifies air
    2)grow almost all vegetables in home itself like tomato,green chillies, potatoes, carrots,beans, double beans, ladies fingers,corrianderethi,amaranthus,brinjal,snake gourd,bitter gourd, ridge gourd, bottle gourd and papaya treewhich are absolutely pesticides free and 100%organic
    3)all types of flowers like jasmine,rose,hybiscus, and so on
    4)we even do our own compost with the wastage of veggies and fruits
    5)our children tooenjoys watering plants daily and we get fresh air
    6)we try our best not to get polythene bags when we go for groceries and shopping.

    @Mano Ranjani Wow so good to read that. Even kids will get inspired to do the same if parents take the first step.

    Mano Ranjani Jun 7 2019

    @Mano Ranjani Superb !

    We still remember when Samaira had planted her first sapling....!! We as elders should plant more and more trees & spread awareness on how we are being destroyed ..because if we do our kids will learn from that..!! We need to teach them how to prevent the earth from Global Warming...!!

    Mehul Mehta Jun 7 2019

    @Mehul Mehta How nice of your daughter and it is really the need of the hour. Future environment depends upon childrens awareness .

    My major part in saving mother earth is that I have been stopped using disposable diaper for the past one and half years... In that way I have saved mother earth from clogging over 1500 more disposable diapers... And We have stopped using polythene bags, stopped buying new plastic toys and stuffs... While going to buy food from Hotel, we readily takes boxes from house itself..
    And do u know, I feel really satisfied while doing these things.

    Devi Athithan Jun 7 2019

    @Devi Athithan A great initiative indeed, it does require a lot of grit to follow something like that . Kudos to you

    As a family this is what we do to protect nature :
    1. We save energy to save money.
    Set our Ac thermostat a few degrees higher in the summer to save on cooling costs.
    2. We have installed compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) when our incandescent bulbs burnt out.
    3. We Unplug appliances when we're not using them.
    4. Wash clothes in cold water whenever possible. As much as 85 percent of the energy used to machine-wash clothes goes to heating the water.
    5. Use a drying rack or clothesline to save the energy otherwise used during machine drying.
    6. Save water to save money.
    Take bucket showers to our water use. This will lower my water and heating bills too.
    7. Less gas = more money (and better health!). We Walk or biketo work. This saves on gas and parking costs while improving our cardiovascular health and reducing our risk of obesity.
    8. Skip the bottled water.
    We use a water filter to purify tap water instead of buyingbottled water. Not only is bottled water expensive, but itgenerates large amounts of container waste.
    9. Think before we buy.
    We go online to find new or gently used secondhand products. Whether we've just moved or are looking to redecorate, we'll consider a service to track down furniture, appliances, and other items cheaply or for free.
    10. Wear clothes that don't need to be dry-cleaned. This saves money and cuts down on toxic chemical use.
    11. Keep electronics out of the trash.
    Use our cell phones,computers, and other electronics as long as possible. We'll donate or recycle them responsibly when the time comes. E-waste contains mercury and other toxics and is a growing environmental problem.

    We have planted few fruits, flowers, and vegetables around our home. It's nice to see the plants grow from their sapling state and give fruits, vegetables, and leaves which we pluck and consume, which taste and feel different from the store bought ones. We also try to be as mindful as possible about the surroundings and environment.
    Try to follow the three Rs-
    *Reduce, as in reduce the use of plastics and things that are harmful to nature. Avoid wasting water and electricity.
    *Reuse
    *Recycle as much as possible

    We still need to see a lot of change when we are outdoors. It's a common sight to see people spitting, throwing trash anywhere and everywhere, littering, using sidewalks as bathrooms etc., Following cleanliness, and creating awareness about why it is necessary to be keep our streets and surroundings clean will definitely help.
    People smoking and vehicles emitting smoke also causes health issues to everybody around. It is better to protect ourselves from smoke as much as possible.

    World Environment Day (WED) is celebrated on the 5th of June every year, and is the United Nation's principal vehicle for encouraging awareness and action for the protection of our environment.
    Plant Trees only it can make our Earth Greener and beautiful.The Real Price Tag is in every Trees,Who give Oxygen the breathe to us.If we get Everything from Earth Why Cannot we can take some small steps and Gift a Beautiful Environment to Earth?
    Please Save the Environment
    If you want to breathe Fresh air.
    trees sequester carbon, helping to remove carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from the air, which cools the earth. In fact, a mature canopy tree absorbs enough carbon and releases enough oxygen to sustain two human beings!
    The reasons why we should not cut trees. Cutting down of trees is known as deforestation. ... The remaining part of the tree dries up and the roots no longer hold the soil together. This leaves the soil exposed and in danger of being eroded by the agents of soil erosion.

    Earth is a beautiful living planet of the Universe as the common habitat of more than 7 billion human population & millions of species of biodiversity. Our generation need to take responsibility for our environment and make it liveable for future.

    We are main liable for Global Warming, character change of weather, Reduce the number of animal & birds etc. It cause by human affects like Green house gas, cold storage, huge quantities cut the tree, many numbers of chemical factories, plastic use etc.

    Now need to take pledge and responsibility for save our environment and make it eco-friendly. Already i started some habits for make our environment eco-friendly.

    1. Started plant trees in inside and unused place of our House, like Balcony, roof etc. Also outside of house and my working areas. At least one in week

    2. Fully avoiding Plastic materials use like poly pack, carry bag from shopping center. Also i told to others for avoid carry bag.

    3. Local areas traveling by cycle or footsteps. It help us to save money and help to reduce pollution.

    4. Always avoiding Smoking. Because it injurious for health and environment both.

    5. Donating economical help as my According to the ability for campaigns of environment consciousness.
    6. Actively participate in local activities about environment related like tree planting, anti mosquito campaign etc.
    7. Using recycled products like t-shirts, handmade bag, paper made products.

    In a manner of speaking if we are all take little responsibility and contributions for environment then it would create big change in future and Much will go forward for make our Environment eco-friendly.
