Reduce, Reuse & Recycle and become Superman from common man

Is caring for environment is so tough? Is this the job of scientists and environmentalists only? Is this the duty of UNEP, NGO’s or Government organisation only? If your answer is big “No” then I suggest you to continue reading this.

I am sure you all have noticed gigantic heaps of waste around your city or town. And more frightening situation is that it is growing with each passing day. The time has now come when we all have to cut down our waste-line. The most simple, practical and best way to reduce our waste-line is to adopt 3-R’s i.e. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. In this blog, I will just discuss the first-R i.e. Reduce.

I believe it is not that complicated and just by applying a little bit of common sense you can proudly become saviours of Planet Earth. Like try to shop in bulk quantities and pick brands which use meagre packaging material. Moreover, companies charge cost of over packaging from customers pocket only. Using disposable goods has become a trend now and despite of having other hygienic options still many people prefers to go with disposable products. If possible try to limit use of such goods like paper plates, cups, napkins, razors etc.

I have noticed many companies work on business strategy of “Planned obsolescence”. They intentionally produce goods of cheap quality of lower price example Chinese products. They want their customer to come and again for the same product. This surely increases their sales but negatively effects environment. Products having short life cycle definitely increase your carbon footprint. Hence, I suggest you too purchase top grade durable products while shopping. Always ask for their durability from company before banking on them. I assure you one thing that top product may cost you more initially, but in long run it will prove beneficial for the individual as well as for the ecosystem as whole.

Let’s now discuss some waste reducing practices of work place. Now days we all have access to internet and other swift e-communication means to pass our message. Using electronic mails to disseminate information is quite an effective as well as smart way instead of forwarding printed papers etc. Hence use click button for forwarding the mails not to give command for printing. And if necessary to take print out than at least try to use both side of the paper. Make centralised files rather than making huge number of individual files.

To bestow a green and clean Planet Earth to coming generations definitely we all have to adopt these simpler methods. In fact, we have all have to make these our habits.

Now, think again is this so difficult to save Plant Earth? No not at all! I believe now you all will agree with me that even a common man can become Superman.
