Things One must know !

Environment conscious & Maintain ecological balance
During the course of our visit to different areas, knowingly or unknowingly we harm nature by littering the areas, especially during our outings.

For example, when one goes for a picnic to a sanctuary, have fun with loud music (even though we know that loud music is prohibited in sanctuaries) and have food and leave all the litter and polythene here and there. This kind of act id highly irresponsible and deplorable, as it’s completely callous towards mother nature.

It’s not that we don’t have the knowledge of environment pollution but sometimes because of lack of awareness and responsibility, people harm Nature.
This is a small list of things with the time it takes to decompose each of them.

We thought of sharing the below message as a part of our efforts to make more number of people know about the damage due to such actions, so that before doing something like this, we should think – how long our act of foolishness will remain on earth.
