Environment is everything around us; our life depends on it. The conditions we live in, grow in and evolve in; affects our body, mind and heart.
This we all have read and learned but still… are we reciprocating to what we are getting from our environment or we have just taken everything for granted?
We all are somehow somewhere rupturing and breaching it and are aware of the repercussions. But personally are we being a help and doing our part to preserve?
We don’t really have to go out of the way to save our environment. Small small changes in our everyday regime may lead to significant contribution.
Let’s be proactive and concentrate on taking positive steps, manifest love towards nature and nurture our surroundings for healthy planet.
Prepare a checklist, make placards and hang them around at home, schools or at work.
