Small Things Make A Difference

Small Things Make A Difference

Amazing cars, huge houses, lots of servants and expensive furitures show that we love extravagance. But we all would like to see a green and clean world where breathing is a healthy and pleasing thing to do, rather than a necessity you would avoid if you could. So how do we achieve that elusive balance between extravagance and environmental – friendly living ? By being aware, of course.
You want to buy that incredibly expensive car, buy it. But also include walking in your routine. Walk to your grocery store. In fact, why don’t you chart a mental map ? Walk to those places that are 10-15 minutes walk from your house. When you go shopping , try parking your car five minutes away from the mall and walk. Saves that much petrol , and stops that much pollution . Fair enough ?
Can’t be bothered to turn off all lights and fans when not in use ? Turn one light off ? By doing that, you save that much energy.
Want to take your girlfriend for a long drive ? Too old, isn’t it ? How about a long romantic walk ? Eating roadside pani-puri ? Well! It saves the country in an interesting manner. Spendings of one Indian being the income of another Indian .
Too cool to carry your own cloth bag to the grocery store ? OK, don’t . But you can at least make sure they put everything in one or two bags, rather than using too many bags. It saves that much of plastic.
Oh yes, go ahead and spend all the money you have on all the luxuries you can buy. Just make sure that you save wherever you can. That is all you need to do. So stop feeling guity about all the harm that you are causing to the society, and get involved in some planet saving activity.
The smallest gesture makes a difference.

Spread the love
