Environmentally Toxic Chemicals

A withered tendril lily was struggling to grow at a filthy land as it was surrounded by heaps of garbage. Domestic animals having a feast at the food thrown in packed plastic covers. Plastic might get clogged in their intestines. Imagine plastic is not good outside then how bad will it be for the body? Garbage dumped in every nook and corner of the city in the name of keeping the interiors clean.  My earth will be more polluted tomorrow40

Climate change – Time to hit the panic button

‘The earth has enough for man’s need but not for man’s greed.’’ Never in the history of mankind have these words held more prevalence than now. It might seem a little far-fetched to use the words ‘never’, ‘history’ and ‘mankind’ in the last sentence but by the end of the essay their use would be justified beyond any reasonable doubt.

Let’s rejuvenate with renewable energy!

Man has always had an insatiable thirst for energy, since the day he first stepped on the earth.

Business Growth Through Environmental Sustainability

Natural resource management and development

The management of natural resources to meet people‘s requirements has been practiced since the pre-Vedic era. Natural resources such as biodiversity, water, land, biomass, forests, livestock, etc– the very foundation of human survival, progress and prosperity, have been degrading fast, and the unprecedented pace of their erosion is one of the root causes. The demographic and socio-economic pressures notwithstanding, the unmindful agricultural intensification, over use of marginal lands, imbalanced use of fertilizers, organic matter depletion and deteriorating soil health, extensive40

The Earth

Why should we care about Global Warming?

After hearing the term ‘Environment’ what are the things that strike our mind? Stuff about trees, water, biotic factors, our surroundings, etc. roam in our brains. But do we find our current environment as green as its definition is in reality? The answer is negative. This dream environment existed in primordial time.
