5 easy ways to raise environmental awareness in your community


environmental awarenessWhile coming and going from home maybe you feel daily the environmental mess around your locality because of the lack of awareness of your community. In our residential areas no doubt most of the environmental care is the responsibility of civic agencies like garbage collectors, sanitary workers but the role of community is equally important. For example if sanitary workers come to your area at 7’o clock in the morning to clean the roads and streets it means all the housemates must put the entire garbage of their homes before 7’o clock. If they get late then the garbage they put outside home after going of sweepers will litter around whole day till the next day sweepers come again. Here community needs environmental awareness to take care of environment by its own will.
