“As individuals, we have a crucial role to play in combating climate change and plastic pollution. The way forward starts with making conscious choices and adopting sustainable practices in our daily lives. We can reduce our carbon footprint by conserving energy, using public transportation or carpooling, and embracing renewable energy sources. By practicing mindful consumption, we can minimize the use of single-use plastics and opt for eco-friendly alternatives. Educating ourselves about climate change and plastic pollution empowers us to make informed decisions and becoming instruments for change.” said Alok Dhir, Founder & Managing Partner, Dhir & Dhir Associates as a prelude to the start of events for celebrating the World Environment Day 2023.
