Everyone talks about water scarcity, pollution, deforestation and more showing concern for rapid changing climate. Discussions and conferences are held to find out solutions but none come out constructive enough to eradicate the entire problem from its roots. Cape Town is already under serious water crisis due to continuous years of drought. The denizens there are struggling for water for their daily needs and are forced to use a minimum amount of water. Fortunately, this situation in other countries can be prevented by very basic effort – plant saplings, grow trees. Because the rates forests are falling there is no way we can escape the effects of climate change very soon. So here are few simple basic steps by which you can contribute towards avoiding such dire circumstances.
Plant in your own home/room
Charity begins at home hence the first place for us to start is our own home. If you live in hostel or pg or apartment or any other place where you cannot plant one then small pots of plants should be a great alternative. It not only purifies the air you breathe in but is also very easy on eyes and creates a soothing atmosphere.
On special occasions like birthday contribute a bit towards planting saplings
It is no secret that birthdays are celebrated extravagantly. Only this time a small part of the expenditure can go into bringing seedlings to plant around. The place can be anywhere of your choice.
Design your home in a way the local vegetation is not disturbed
Most often than not while building a new home the previous vegetation of the land is destroyed. Designing of the house can be done in a manner which benefits both. And if it isn’t possible then at least the damage done should be minimum and some space must be allotted for new trees to grow.
Gift saplings to neighbors and relatives
One of the many things our country is famous for is the gifts we give each other, especially during the festive season. So this festival you can gift your friends and family saplings or seedlings to promote and spread the vegetation cover.
