By S. Balwinder Singh Lakhewalia (Professional Environmentalist)

Millions of trees are planted every year but only a small percentage survives.

The simplest details include unpacking a sapling, size and ingredient of the pit, light and water requirement, protection measures and initial care required.

The common mistakes done are planting the wrong sapling, not removing the plastic cover, using a smaller pit, no soil preparation, excess watering etc

By Dr Rakesh Sharda

Hydroponics is a technique to grow plants in water than growing them in soil, thus avoiding the use of chemically produced fertilizers, pesticides and insecticides. It requires reusable water that is much less land requires din soil than traditional field farming. Many crops can be produced twice as fast in a well-managed hydroponic system. Indoor farming in a climate controlled environment means farms can exist in places where weather and soil conditions are not favourable for traditional food production. No chemical weed or pest control products are needed when operating a hydroponic system.

By doing this you are consuming the land fllls faster that in turn is producing more methane gases and causing global warming. Moreover, we can easily convert our kitchen waste into black gold which is the purest form of fertilizer for our plants at home.

6. Ways to Reuse and Recycle Plastic

By Mr. Harsh Garg (Harwaval Punjab)

An eco-brick is a brick which is made with help of plastic bottles. These bricks can also be made at home and can be made by anyone. The idea is simple, that is filling up empty plastic bottles with small plastic waste. The plastic waste can be plastic bags, wrappers, packing etc. When the plastic bottles are tightly filled with such waste material they can withstand weight or pressure and can be used as bricks for various purposes like landscaping, decoration, furniture, outdoor sitting etc. This helps in cleaning of the environment and using of waste as something useful. Since plastic is non-biodegradable these bottles can be used for a long period of time but otherwise this would have been added to our landfills producing harmful gases.

Second way is to reduce your plastic consumption and we can immediately start with shifting to cloth bags. This workshop will also cover making or buying such carry bags made from waste cloth.

7. Water Conservation

Rajesh Jain

Water saved is water gained! We know that world over we are running short of drinkable water and even now billions of people don’t have routine access to clean water.

To conserve water for ourselves and our future generations it is our responsibility to adapt all possible measures to save and replenish water. Water conservation is a method used for increasing the ground water levels which can be used in future. One way is by collecting rainwater from roofs and taking it to a storage tank through pipes. It is one of the simplest ways to save water with minimum cost and effort. The water collected in tanks can be used in any way thus reducing the dependency on other water resources.
