Snigdha A Akolkar: I’m a great believer in the phenomena that small actions can make a big difference in the Environment. I like to do as much as I can to save the environment. I believe in not wasting clean water. I keep 2 bowls of water in the summer on my window for birds. I don’t use plastic carry bags. I always carry cloth bags. It saves us from creating lots of waste. I hate it when people throw anything on the road or in the sea instead of the dustbin. I planted and adopted 10 (Nilgiri, saag, and Neem) trees in a tree planting activity too. They are 7 yrs old now. I often encourage my fans also to take part in the same activities. I suggest to cut down on the use of paper, it’ll save millions of trees.

Akashdeep: I pray to mother nature every day. The Sun is the ultimate God for me. And as long as the sun supports nature, we will have life on this planet. I have taken the plastic ban very seriously this time as I’ve read so much on the effects of plastic on our environment. Conserving water is also very important for me. The resources on mother earth are not limitless hence we should show some respect and restraint. I do make it a point to be careful when it comes to wasting water and electricity. A beautiful planet sounds a utopian idea but it’s not that tough. Modijis initiatives are a kick start. I sincerely believe in the Swatch Bharat campaign.

Mohammad Nazim: It is important to understand the impact of the environmental hazards that you, as an individual, are responsible for instead of focusing on the average effect of hazardous activities by society as a whole.

I make it a point to throw garbage in dustbins and also carry a small garbage bag in my handbags in case dustbins are not available.

Also, PUC for all the cars and bikes is a must to keep a tap on pollution. We can plant saplings for a greener environment. Also, keep your surroundings clean, don’t throw wrappers and such on the streets.\

Wet and dry garbage should be separated and spitting on the road should be made to pay a fine. We can’t be polluting our roads. I am particular about getting PUC checked too regularly. Self-initiative is a must for every citizen. Taking care of our environment is our sole duty and we all must do our bit because after all, this Earth is our home.

Recently, I got to know that Capetown is one of the first cities to have no water.

Abraam Pandey: Environment is the surrounding in which we live. It is the source of life. Our whole life is dependent to the environment. It directs our life and determines our proper growth and development. Good or bad quality of social life depends on the quality of our natural environment. The need of human beings for food, water, shelter and other things depends on the environment around us. There is a balanced natural cycle exists between. environment and lives of human beings, plants and animals.
