Therefore, which out of the 13 guidelines would you consider easy to pursue as a part of your daily lifestyle ?

  1. According to me we should always plant more and more trees to save the environment. Without trees there would be no shade for people on a sunny day. There would be no place for animals and birds to live. In fact, it’s very difficult to imagine a world without trees.
    There are many ways that people can help preserve our trees. They include making sure that if we cut down trees; we ensure that more are planted so that trees will be available for future generations. Also other measure to conserve trees would be to make sure they are healthy and remain a part of nature and are a part of homes for our wildlife.

  2. Almost all the point given above must be taken care of to be the part of ‘Going Green’. But still I will like to practice point no. 4 ,7 and 13 to accomplish my duties being the active dweller of this planet. I think all these are in east reach and much promising in making effects.

  3. Point No. 9 and 11 are the most important to me to add in the movement of Going Green .By creating pits ,we can create gas for cooking and at the same time we can control the pollution .Similarly by using the waste water in different ways will help to remove the problem of water scarcity.

  4. There’s a direct connection between your energy use and the environment. When you consume less power, you reduce the amount of toxic fumes released by power plants, conserve the earth’s natural resources and protect ecosystems from destruction. By taking steps to reduce your energy intake, you’ll contribute to a healthier and happier world.

  5. Trees can reduce heating and air conditioning costs. There is a reason trees tend to be clustered around homes. Homeowners want them there, not just for their shady beauty, but for their effect on temperature. It is well known that trees can absorb summer heat. They also provide shade that can cool a house and yard substantially. In cooler months, trees provide a windbreak and trap heat. A difference of just degrees can save a lot of energy over the course of a year. So as per my view planting more trees is the best solution.

  6. Almost all the point given above should be taken care of to be the part of ‘Going Green’.But according to me we should always plant more and more trees to save the environment for many reason.
    Community & Social Value:-Trees are an important part of every community. Our streets, parks, playgrounds and backyards are lined with trees that create a peaceful, aesthetically pleasing environment.

    Ecological & Environmental Value:-Trees contribute to their environment by providing oxygen, improving air quality, climate amelioration, conserving water, preserving soil, and supporting wildlife. During the process of photosynthesis, trees take in carbon dioxide and produce the oxygen we breathe.

    Personal & Spiritual Value:-The main reason we like trees is because they are both beautiful and majestic. No two are alike. Different species display a seemingly endless variety of shapes, forms, textures and vibrant colors.

    Practical & Commercial Value:-Trees have supported and sustained life throughout our existence. They have a wide variety of practical and commercial uses. Wood was the very first fuel, and is still used for cooking and heating by about half of the world’s population. Trees provide timber for building construction, furniture manufacture, tools, sporting equipment, and thousands of household items. Wood pulp is used to make paper.

    Property Value & Economic Value:-Individual trees and shrubs have value and contribute to savings, but it is the collective influence of a well-maintained landscape that makes a real economic impact and has the greatest effect on property value.

  7. Greetings for the day! “Cleanliness is next to Godliness”, beautifully said and the surroundings can be neat and clean when we keep them green. The greenery is the direst necessity of the day. We all must resolve to plant a sapling and take care of it to see it grow into a giant tree. Out of the thirteen points mentioned over here, generally my tendency is to follow most of them if not possible to follow all of them…as digging pits for composite or else maintaining a kitchen garden is little difficult, so, I try to follow most of the points out of this list.

  8. Being environmentally friendly simply means having a lifestyle that are better for the environment. Its all about taking small steps towards mother earth so as to make this planet a better place for our communities and generations to come. A good way would be to start with conserving water, driving less and walking more, consuming less energy, buying recycled products, eating locally grown vegetables, joining environmental groups to combat air pollution, creating less waste, planting more trees and many more.

  9. I consider No: 6 as a very influential solution for the long term.Planting trees in our neighborhood really is one of the best things we can do for the local environment and for the planet. It’s no secret that trees help the environment, Besides producing oxygen and removing carbon dioxide and contaminants from the air- Trees also help to reduce ozone levels in urban areas ,absorb sound and reduce noise pollution, they provide habitat for birds and other wildlife & reduce urban runoff and erosion by storing water and breaking the force of rain as it falls etc.

  11. Going green is a lifestyle change targeted at being consciously aware of the surrounding environment and how things we do affect that environment. Every day number of trees disappear from the face of the earth. When there are other ways of generating paper products, trees are still being used largely. It’s high time now, that we stop this mean destruction, before we forget the colour green. There are many things that can be done like recycling of the paper, avoiding wastage of the paper etc.

Most important is we change our attitude towards our surroundings. We need to do change our ways of living: walk for short distances, not pollute water bodies, use renewable energy etc. Each one’ s contribution will help us to live in a better world.

  18. In order to have healthy communities, we need clean air, natural resources, and a nontoxic environmental. Sustainability is important to making sure that we have and will continue to have, the water, materials, and resources to protect human health and our environment.” Simply, it means conserving our resources like energy and water, for example, and taking care of our environment and neighborhood as best as we can.
    According to me, guidelines mentioned in the poster are important and should be followed by everyone.
    The three scientific principles of sustainability are: (1) dependence on solar energy, (2) Biodiversity, and (3) chemical cycling.

    This should be practiced in School too –
    Reduce lunch waste. …,
    Recycling is a no-brainer,
    Use both sides of a sheet of paper,
    Print only what you must,
    Set up an exchange sale where you trade books and other items with your classmates,
    Turn off the lights when you’re the last one leaving a room.
    Conduct a waste audit.

  19. I think all points are equally important but as far as the feasibility is concerned then using Led lights, compost pits, water efficient taps, light coloured paints for exterior as well as interiors etc can be made the part of daily life. New methods of garbage disposal are also a good solution.

  21. All the points given up are equally important. It is not such that a particular point should be given special emphasis. If we want the earth 🌏 to remain habitable, the points should be taken into account.
    I try to follow as many as possible. A vermicompost pit is present in the garden at my home. Switching off lights and fans while leaving the room is a habit that I follow and have inculcated in my children from the start.
    Like it’s been said, we have not inherited this earth from our ancestors. We have instead, borrowed it from our future generations.
    Even the late scientist Stephen Hawking has famously said that if the degradation of the environment, the way it has been happening for the past some time, is not checked it won’t be long when the earth would be a ball of fire, something that has hapoened only in science fiction only for now.
    In an era when most of the influential and powerful individuals are not concerned about environment and the impact their actions cause on human, but are interested in raking in quick profits only, it is upto us to ensure that the earth is habitable for our future generations.
    Things are changing at a pace giving some species time to not even adapt to change. And with the current pace we are only a few years away from a earth that we are not going to recognize.

  23. This is a burning issue these days where people are campaigning for keeping earth clean and green. Awareness is being given to save our mother earth. Every step for betterment and safety starts from within ourselves. We have to take initiative to start it from our homes. According to me, using LED light sources, having a green garden, planting trees to the maximum, using solar panels for various purposes, using light coloured paints in the houses, converting or treating the kitchen waste to make manure out of it, using water effecient taps for saving potable water and having windows are the best ways to help our earth and survive in a better way.

  24. According to me , Planting more trees around us will be major point among all . As plants are the best source of providing more oxygen and absorbing carbon dioxide . Also it helps to provide shade , which eventually affect the overall environment in our surroundings. The second point which i think is essential is using compost pits . It helps to recycle the waste .

  31. There is a variety of reasons to go green, but most come back to supply and demand. We have a limited amount of resources available and more and more people using them up. If we want our future generations to enjoy the same standard of living we’ve experienced, we need to take actions.Green systems and materials reduce energy consumption, which in turn reduce your energy bills. They also increase asset value and profits and decrease marketing time; making your money go further for longer.

  36. According to my perception ,all above points are having their own importance. Going green help the environment by reducing the amount of pollution that enters the soil, water and air . Healthy ecosystems clean our water, purify our air, maintain our soil, regulate the climate, recycle nutrients and provide us with food. Turn off appliances and lights when you leave the room , select products made from recycled etc are these factors to protect our environment.
