Street Act by School Students- Environment Week 2012

Some talented students of a Private School gathered on the Mall Road, Solan and performed a Street Drama on the Environment issues. They played it so gracefully that a huge gathering. The drama taught the audience importance of trees in our daily life. The ironical part was how we elders are ignorant about nature. Actually we are so selfish that to fulfill our own needs we never hesitate to conquer the nature. We never give a second thought that we are putting the life of our coming generation in danger.

We all are knowingly or unknowingly responsible for environmental imbalance. So by taking following simple steps you can also contribute to save environment:

  1. Plant an herb garden. 
  2. Switch all your light bulbs to CFLs .
  3.  Create a homemade compost pit.
  4. Switch one appliance to an energy efficient model (look for the “energy star” rating).
  5. Stop using polythene bags use reusable cloth bags instead.
  6. Buy an inexpensive reusable water bottle, and stop buying plastic disposable bottles. 
  7. Wash laundry in cold water instead of hot.
  8. Turn off lights when you leave the room.
  9. Don’t turn on lights at all for as long as you can—open your curtains and enjoy natural light.
  10. Drive the speed limit, and combine all your errands for the week in one trip.
  11. Better yet, walk or ride a bicycle to your trips that are two miles or closer.
  12. Support your local economy and shop at your farmer’s market.
  13. Turn off your computer completely at night.
  14.  Pay your bills online. Not only is it greener, it’s a sanity saver.
  15. Reuse scrap paper.  Print on two sides, or let your kids color on the back side of used paper.
  16. Before buying anything new, first check your local Craigslist or Free cycle.
  17. Support local restaurants that use food derived less than 100 miles away, and learn more about the benefits of eating locally.
  18.  Fix leaky taps immediately and save water.
  19.  Make your own household cleaners. 
  20. Line dry your laundry instead of using dryer of your machine.
  21.  Learn with your kids about another country or culture, expanding your knowledge to other sides of the world.
  22.  Unplug unused chargers and appliances. 
  23. Collect rainwater, and use it to water your houseplants and garden.
  24. Switch to cloth diapers – or at least do a combination with disposables. Even one cloth diaper per day means fewer disposables in the landfill each year.
  25.  Use cloth instead of paper to clean your kitchen. Be frugal, and make these rags out of old towels and t-shirts.
  26. Use cloth napkins daily instead of paper.
  27.  Read Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, and be utterly inspired.
  28.  Repurpose glass jars as leftover containers and bulk storage, especially in the kitchen.
  29.  Donate to—and shop at—thrift stores.  You’ll be recycling perfectly usable items, you’ll be supporting your local economy, and you’ll be saving money.
