One should incorporate the following changes in life-style in a move towards sustainable use of our resources:

  • Stop cutting trees and practice plantation of trees.
  • Stop using plastic and polythene bags for carrying goods.
  • Use recycled paper.
  • Throw biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste into separate bins.
  • Waste minimum amount of water while using and repair leaking taps.
  • Practice rainwater harvesting.
  • Avoid using vehicles for short distances. Instead, one can walk or cycle to cover short distances. → To cover long distances, one should take a bus instead of using personal vehicles.
  • Switch off electrical appliances when not in use.
  • Use fluorescent tubes in place of bulbs to save electricity.
  • Take stairs and avoid using lifts.
  • During winters, wear an extra sweater to avoid using heaters.
