Earth is developing day by day. Nowadays we are surrounded between great technology and digital system. In this era, where on one hand, we try to make our environment extraordinary for more comfort that make life easier .On the other hand, we are abusing our environment by polluting it badly. Everyday we deliberately damage it in different ways. Air pollution, water pollution , sounds pollution etc are the major types of this damage. These toxic pollution affects more than 200 million people worldwide according to Pure Earth, a non profit environmental organization. Everyday year around 7 million people die according to WHO (World Health Organization) from exposure to polluted air . As per WHO’s latest update, 9 out of 10 people breathe in unhealthy air which contains high level of pollutants.
Human activities are played more important role for all these hazardous things on the earth since its existence. Trashes are widely generated in large quantity by human’s daily journal. Their activities are responsible for this disaster. They throw their wastes in different form which bad impact seems on every places like air, ocean , soil and so on . Some dangerous gases are being emitted from vehicles and chimneys of factory which makes the air toxic day by day. These toxic air are developing diseases such as lung cancer, asthama, heart disease etc. A lot of hazardous wastes are produce and carelessly thrown by humans on their day activities that directly affects to environment these substance includes chemical wastage by factories, garbages from our day to day activities, plastics and so on. These toxics are not only making water poisonous but it also causing the death of many aquatic animals and for human’s health too.
Plastics are one of the major toxic pollutants and causing harm to the environment in large quantity. Indeed plastics are non-biodegadable substance which can not be properly degrade easily. The decomposition rate of plastic typically ranges from 500 to 600 years. Due to the plastic wastage, soil fertility is horrifically affected as its chemical bonds are too strong. Disposing plastic into water has directly impact on marine life. Burned plastic also releases poisonous chemical in the air.
We need to reduce , reuse, recycle these harmful waste. From a recent study we found that of the 6.3 billion metric tons of plastic waste that has been produced, only 9% of that plastic waste had been recycled. It would seems that waste disposal has become more careless. In such a situation , the mantra to make “My waste , my responsibility” can be useful to us. We are responsible for this situation from beginning and we need to recycle as much garbage as possible.
Once Mahatma Gandhi said ,”Sanitation is more important than independence”. Putting light on this line, our government have conducted many steps to control this condition and to make our country cleaner. For this purpose, Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, a campaign was launched by prime minister, Narendra Modi on the 145th birth anivanniver of our father of nation, Mahatma Gandhi. The major goal of this mission is to eliminate waste from our environment from different way. Indian government have recently published a report on E-waste in which it has been increased 10% to 20%. It is truly a great decision of government. India’s first E-waste clinic is putting up in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh and soon its construction might completed. Recently government taken decision to leapfrog directly by 1st April,2020 and many more major steps being taken by government to control pollution. They are trying to fulfill their responsibility towards pollution. A citizen’s action is also integral part of this fight. Its our responsibility too for making environment clean and to support the government’s scheme.
We need to not throw trashes carelessly and to use two separate permanent dustbin for our biodegradable and non biodegradable wastes. Every individual need to maintain their vehicle essentially for perverting pollution, to reduce pesticide use, to plant more trees, to install water-efficient appliances, to reduce plastic consumption, to avoid burning leaves or trashes or other materials and so on.
We are definitely responsible for the wastes. So we need to take this as responsibility and do it as a daily job. It is right time to protect the next generation and to make environment clean and green.
“BE A PART OF SOLLUTION NOT
A PART OF POLLUTION”
