“The environment is where we all meet; where we all have a mutual interest; it is the one thing all of us share.”
-Lady Bird Johnson
As quoted by Lady Bird Johnson, the environment is what we all have in common and it’s a mutual interest for the entire human race. Good environmental conditions mean, we all survive longer, and live a healthier life.
Just like we take care of our mother and respect her, we should be respecting mother nature as well. But have we forgotten how important she is? Have we stopped embracing her beauty and started taking her for granted? We certainly have. She is sick, and all of us can see the symptoms like air pollution, water pollution, global warming, marine life disturbances, ozone layer depletion, and I can go on.
We all can take little steps towards a greener world, fighting these problems and making sure our mother nature is healthy again. One step taken by the Indian government is banning plastic all over the country, so here is another by us- using plastic substitutes.
Growing up, we all have seen flowers wrapped in cellophane sheet commonly and after the plastic ban, my first thought was- what about flower arrangements and bouquets? But we can change that too.
