We have polluted our soil, food, air and even water. Can I do something at personal level? What should be my course of ‘action’? This book aims at answering these questions. It is said that action is far more superior than inaction. So, this book gives us actionable steps to save our planet at individual level. Study says that we are what our habits are. First, we make habits, then habits make us. So, this book gives a list of simple, yet highly powerful 31 Green Habits, which correspond to 31 days in a month. If we follow one single habit each day, we will be able to not only save this planet but also save our resources—be it natural resources or our financial resources—and reduce our carbon footprints on this planet.
There are broadly two types of habits. One is aimed at reducing our waste and the other is doing something pro-actively for the environment. The 5 R’s of waste management are refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle and repurpose. These include carpooling, reducing waste food, reducing water and power wastage, saving paper, saving water, de-cluttering, replacing disposable with reusable, etc. Also, there is a set of habits, which are suggested for positive actions such as plants in the home, growing your own food, planting a forest, living in green buildings, seed-balls, etc.
Let’s start our Green Habits!
