Green Living is still considered a trend, a fad and most people don’t take it quite seriously even in developed, affluent and well-off societies. Leave alone underdeveloped countries and people living below the poverty line, the uneducated who have not even the slightest concept of going green.
Its regretful that even the billionaires are taking a heavy toll to the environment from the harmful effects of petrol and diesel buying bigger vehicles when the need for them can be efficiently met with under 1000 cc transportation. The show-off culture and superiority complex have vastly contributed in air pollution from misuse of cars and the billion-dollar fashion industry. Human beings are destroying their own homeland buying wooden furniture’s and leather bags, leading to unnecessary chopping of trees and slaughtering poor animals.
There are some serious efforts by different NGO to safeguard the life of animals and trees to protect our environment, but unless we have an effective system in place and social awareness, all their efforts will go down the drain. All the organized steps taken by these NGO’s and handful of responsible citizens are lost in the noise, since the vast majority don’t consider pollution a serious issue.
