The cleaner air, water, and the greener, healthier community of the future, begins with me" Laws are neither respected nor enforced in India.
Neat and clean environment has a cheerful effect. It is a sure sign of civilization. We are fortunate to have the opportunity to receive education. Our responsibility is to help keep our town clean. We ought to develop civic sense. A clean town hints on the people living as respectable, responsible and intelligent. Therefore it is very necessary to keep a town clean. there are a lot of ways to do that but first in is to start from each house.
To see the change at the global level, we need to act at the local level. Acting at the local level only needs a sense of initiative. And in this way, A clean home will lead to a clean street, a clean street will lead to a city, a clean state will lead to clean nation and a clean nation will lead to a clean and a healthy Alma Mater…
We should ensure that dog foul is collected in a poop pack and be responsible pet owners. Dustbins should be placed in front of each house where passers by can throw in their litter and the occupants themselves can throw that along with their daily garbage into the community dustbin or van be towed by a municipal corporation van/truck. Every school can install a handy ‘paper recycling machine’ as the school generates lots of waste paper in form of charts, answer books, other decorative sheets etc. Students should be encouraged to use notebooks that are made of bagasse and handmade sheets/charts etc. Every public/school transport should be installed with an attachable dustbin so that it doesn’t overturns and the passengers need not throw garbage outside the vehicle’s windows.
If you feel there aren't enough trash cans around town or that your town doesn't have a good recycling program, write to the appropriate people to let them know. Instead of buying new pens, we can use refill the ink in the old ones. This will reduce production of waste. Esteemed Daily like ‘The Hindu’ and paper printing agencies like ‘Classmate’ make use of recycled paper. Lead free paints are introduced in the market. We can encourage their efforts by being a consumer to these products. Try carpooling or public transportation, and if you smoke, try to quit. To help prevent water pollution, only flush or pour things down the sink that will not damage the water supply; avoid putting paint, old medications, glue, and other potentially damaging items down the sink or toilet. Learn what the appropriate ways of disposing of these things are. We should avoid using deodorants since they are a source of air pollution and release CFCs into the environment.
We should reduce the consumption of ‘paper napkins/tissues’ or ‘toilet papers’ As citizens we should work in tandem with the municipal corporation of our area and also act as watchdogs and report the misdemeanor of the corporation. The reason for such action is necessary so that people who take cleanliness for granted should be reminded that their dirtiness can have harmful effects on themselves plus on the people living around them.
