Work for the Betterment of Environment

Updated on July 4, 2015

Mahatma Gandhi stated, "Nature gives us resources to meet our needs, but not our greed". We are using the natural resources indiscriminately. We should adopt ecofriendly technology. Keep in mind the '3R' formula Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Reduce pollution and polluting agents, Reuse the substance, and Recycle the waste. Let’s know what we can do to protect and work for the better environment.


What should we do?

  • See that the population does not increase.
  • While extracting coal, petrol, diesel, take care that the process doesn't affect natural resources.
  • Make use of natural gases, solar energy, wind energy.
  • Recycle the garbage and use again.
  • Environmental acts should be strictly implemented.
  • We all should see that wastes produced are not beyond control.
  • Use water economically.
  • Use bio fertilizers.
  • Crop rotation should be maintained.

Proper use of Resources:

  • Use water economically.
  • Plan the use of water and then use it accordingly
  • Rain water harvesting should be done.

  • Compost the damp waste.
  • Make use of Medicinal plants

Consumer Rights:

Now a days duplicate things are made in the same way as originals. Substances are adulterated every where. Starting from rice, petrol, Kerosene... every thing is adultered. All these things show adverse effect on our health.

  • Before buying anything, know where it is manufactured or made.
  • See the date of manufacturing and expiry without fail.
  • Look for ISI label on goods like chocolates and biscuits.
  • Look/ check for FPO stamp while purchasing papads, fruit Juices etc.
  • Check for Agmark label on products like oil/ ghee.
  • Check if the petrol was checked/ tested that day on Petrol bunk before filling Petrol in your Vehicle.

Implementing Environmental acts:

We can't survive unless we protect our environment and atmosphere in future. Growing industries, Pollution, ecological imbalance leads to lack of trees, air and water. We should take responsibility to protect the environment.

  • Soil, water, air, animals, birds, Plants and trees are not anybody's property. This is the collective property bestowed on us by nature.
  • In 1985 the government announced a national policy for protection of forests.
  • In 1992, a policy of declaration was made for the abatement of pollution.
  • In 2004 a new drafting committee was appointed for environmental safety.
  • In 1974 'water pollution controlling Act came into implementation.
  • In 1981 Air Pollution controlling Act came into implementation.
  • In 1986, Environmental protection Act gave rights to central and state governments to control pollution.
  • We all have the responsibility to follow the constitution and environment protection rules.
  • Protect the ecological balance, arrange discussion forums on the solutions of pollution and problems, file rits on environmental problems in courts, file public interest litigations in your area. These are all our responsibilities. Then we can save environment.

Success Stories:

Chipko movement: The Chipko movement started as a protest against the selfish businessmen who resorted to felling forests for personal gain despite repeated warnings by the Villagers.
Sunderlal Bahuguna infused life into the Chipko movement and raised its impor tance internationally.
Success of this movement:

  • Deforestation has lessened compared to prior years.
  • This movement show cased the selfish motto of many businessmen on the name of development.

C.N.G: (Compressed Natural Gas):
Increasing number of Vehicles day by day are producing more dangerous and harmful gases than the factories. So, Now a days a gas which cannot pollute the air is being used. It is C.N.G (compressed Natural Gas.).

  • It is colourless.
  • It is odourless.
  • It is a mixture of hydrocarbons.
  • It is a environment friendly fuel.
    In India, Delhi is the only city where vehicles are run on CNG.
    Beijing and Seol are other too places where C.N.G is more used.
  • If we use such eco friendly fuels, we can escape from air pollution and can get fresh air for respiration.
