Every day in India, 1000 children die from drinking dirty water and it is reported that 80% of the population suffers from pollution-induced diseases and fatalities. The general public, children, tourists, businesses, municipalities, panchayats even animals - everyone is affected by the filth that litters our streets and pollutes our waterways.
It’s not just about the way a place looks, mismanaged waste is harmful to our health and the health of our families. The Municipal Solid Waste Management Rules are here to protect us and the environment but unless they are enforced and adhered to they are of little use.
With over one fifth of the world’s population residing in India, this has a massive impact on not just our country but our planet. A clean environment should be a basic fundamental right of every living creature but it doesn’t just happen, we have to make it happen!
