environmental threat in the world at present?
biggest environmental threat is the electronic waste. While countries have
traditionally focussed a lot on pollution due to usage of fossil fuels, oil and
plastic. The size and proportion of the environmental damage due to electronic
waste has been underscored. The major cause for the increasing rate of e-waste
is due to the increasing number of products manufactured because of the
constant rate of advancing technology, development as well as mentality of
human due to which disposal issues are raising as excess of anything is not
help the environment?
and environment are like mother (creator and nourisher). Technology is just an
enabler for making things more accessible and convenient. Don’t ever confuse
technology to be more powerful than mother nature. Instead, use technology to
preserve and value what mother nature gifts us.
Environment Day’ at the present time?
the current times of global epidemic, World Environment Day is a great
opportunity for all of us to be reminded that mother nature has given us
enough; and that minimalism is what we need for happy and satisfied life. The
greed has pushed us to exploit nature beyond our capacity to deal with the
repercussions. Let’s not ever confuse, ourselves as the owners of Mother nature
who knows when to repair and heal itself. We better behave like the responsible
custodians. Environmental wellness is what feeds our holistic (physical,
mental, emotional and financial) wellness.
