Let’s do our bit to save the environment!
The Swachh success of Madhya Pradesh has created a benchmark in the state to keep our environment clean. With so many rivers originating from Madhya Pradesh and being a state, which is home to 9 national parks, 6 tiger reserves and 25 wildlife sanctuaries, it is our responsibility to conserve our rich environment.
Let’s explore some ways to connect with the nature:
The Narmada in central India is the sixth longest river in the Indian subcontinent. The Madhya Pradesh government also organises Narmada Seva Yatra campaign to conserve the river. The campaign includes awareness activities and massive plantation across the banks of river Narmada to save soil degradation. Let us also join hands on a daily basis to preserve this valuable source.
- Take quick showers
- Collect unused water for reuse
- Use biodegradable products
- Volunteer for a river clean-up project
The Madhya Pradesh government decided recently to ban plastic and polythene bags across the state, saying it is leading to cow deaths and polluting the environment. Let’s all stand up and take action against plastic pollution.
- Stop buying plastic bottled water
- Carry our own cloth bags to store
- Say no to straws
- Use glass containers instead of plastic zippers for food storage
About 36% of Indian bird species are recorded in the state of Madhya Pradesh. It is home to a large variety of birds. Ministry of Environment and Forest is continuously working to save birds and ensure no loss of habitats. Let us get involved in bird conservation.
- Protect birds from pets
- Limit use of chemicals in gardens
- Go for bird watching and join conservation groups
- Create a small birdhouse and bird bath
Madhya Pradesh is known as the ‘tiger state’. The state houses half a dozen tiger reserves and prominent among them are Kanha, Panna, Bandhavgarh and Pench. Let us help save these creatures.
- Sign petitions to save tigers
- Educate locals about tiger conservation
- Join a cause for tigers
Bike Sharing Trend
The Bhopal Bike sharing system is the country’s first integrated and fully automated bicycle sharing system. By using public bike sharing scheme, we will pedal for good health. It will decrease the use of privately owned vehicles and thereby reduce pollution. We can also use the Chartered Bike apps in Bhopal and help save the environment in our own ways.
With an aim to create a new Guinness record, in 2017, Madhya Pradesh citizens participated in a massive plantation drive in which 60 million saplings were planted in a day along the Narmada river banks. By planting trees, we are not only serving Madhya Pradesh but the world at large. Let’s make a difference.
It’s time to we do something for our Mother Nature. Change comes about when we as individuals make an effort. So, let’s do our bit to save the environment!
