The Predicament called Air Pollution
We have been talking about air pollution for almost a decade but how much have we put things to action? Do we consider ourselves better equipped to manage and monitor pollution now? Read our blog on the predicament called air pollution.
Air pollution has been a hot topic for debate for over adecade now. Well, that literally means wehave been talking about it for more than 10years, but for what? I live in one ofthe most heavily polluted cities ofIndia. Yeah, Delhi, the capital and I have been a mute spectator of all thesedebates. I see a steady increase in vehicular traffic in spite of having one ofthe finest networks of metro railways.
Every year people talk, and then they drive away in their superluxury cars back and then it’s all forgotten. We all think we have been a partof an environmental cause and then we get back to our mundane lives.
Every year the population index shows a more ghastly figureand we mothers buy all possible masks and scarves for our little ones.
Every year population increases, illegal industrial unitskeep increasing, vehicles increase,and weget together to talk!The government measures are not helping either. Placeswith high levels of pollutants have been passed off as having “satisfactory”air quality. How do we rely on such data?
But after more than a decade of talking about it how ready are we to combat this air pollution? Iwasn’t sure a few years back. But todaythe mother in me is looking for answers. I need themeans to protect my kid and have seen many other mothers facing the samepredicament. So I come back to my initial question: Are we ready to combatpollution now? Combat, not really but with the advent of technology, luckily wecan monitor and ensure it is safe for our family!
So hereare some things you can do to keep your family safe
Invest in a good air purifier. Look out for portable and compactdevices that you can carry around.Go Green. Plant a lot of trees around yourhome and if you live in an apartment buy yourself some indoor air purifierplants.
Join the Cause. Look around,and you would find a lot of businesses that have taken specialinterest in this cause and are doingtheir bit for the society. Support them. It might mean nothing now, butremember, tiny drops maketh an ocean. Be that tiny drop. Dust out your cycleand start riding it for a change. Say no to firecrackers. Your planet and yourfamily’s health must definitely mean more than a day’s celebration right? Teachyour kids that there are better ways to enjoy than polluting the environmentaround us.
