Do we need kids or are we just obsessed?

I had a day out yesterday. Decided to go into the city to fight seasonal depression, as one does, and bask in the glories that are a result of senseless consumerism. I was seeking a change of pace. I took the public commute at the risk of being puked on, having folks elbow you, and fighting the chances of having to stand for an hour. 

As I went through 7am to 9am, the sun went from delightful to outright vengeful. From a bus and then into a metro, there was a blindingly obvious problem staring at me – there’s too many of us.

There’s too many of people getting out of their homes because we know the traffic will slow us down. We avoid weekend trips to not be swamped by the crowd. We don’t eat out at food courts and choose fine dinning, usually to avoid people. The race for the “premium” experience is on. Our primary sense of luxury has become “access to good things without having to stand in a queue.” 

The reason this is problematic is because I haven’t seen enough people call out overpopulation. At a global level, perhaps this can be brushed away, but it is at the root of all our socio-economic struggles. Have you ever wondered why the quality of life is better in smaller countries with a limited population? If so, you probably understand where I’m going with this. 

Birth control 

As controversial as it is, I’m going to talk about it. Firstly, why do gynaecologists promote baby making as if they were storks dressed in lab coats? Since when did we start assuming everyone wants a baby? Why does infertility have the same reaction as finding a tumour? 

For the longest time, we’ve stuck to condoms and nothing else for men. For women, you can get pills, copper-Ts and more. Have you compared the price difference between contraception for men and women? Shouldn’t we cater birth control options for women, seeing as they are the one’s who make the baby? Why is there absolutely no room for a discussion of being child-free.

Abortion is another widely under discussed topic. Why are they not encouraged? Since when did we start telling people that they owe it to the world to diminish the resources that could otherwise help improve the individual quality of life significantly. Since when did we start telling women that they must do what we think is best with their bodies? and when will we stop? To put it simply, if you don’t think you can have an opinion on tumour removal of another human, do not extend your expertise on what they should do about the tiny human growing inside them. Because in both cases, the results will forever change their life and it’s accountability will never be shouldered by you. 

As a race, we’ve trapped, killed, massacred and domesticated every animal we could find. We’ve overpopulated every continent except one. There are growing landfills, dingy apartments, skyscrapers, to make endless money to support a family you’re not even sure you ever wanted and yet the narrative with birth control has always been a matter of “child now or later?” 

Child-free 

If you’re anywhere between 20-40, you must be aware of the popular wedding fiasco we’ve now normalised. Spending all of your savings and your parent’s savings on a single day or a few days to celebrate the fact that you have found someone to share a life with by throwing a party for a bunch of people who will probably never contribute to your marriage in any which way or form. Once you’re married, the next thing staring at you is – child. Because we think that love must create something. Together, two people must build something. For whatever reason this something is never a forest or a piece of furniture. It’s almost always a child. And we’re so used to the norm that we’ve stopped asking the question “Do I really want to have children?”

There are people who choose to live child free. For those of us who are infertile, the term “childless” is tossed around to a point of concern because without one you are no longer relevant. If you’re not a dissatisfied, angry adult, what’s the point of your existence? 

Being child free, be it by choice or otherwise needs to be more popular than it is today. Primarily because it’s very similar to another issue we have in front of us. Now, I’m not calling children plastic, so bare with me. 

I’m guessing you’re not delusional about climate change if you’ve managed to find this blog. So, you see how we know that plastic is indeed a problem and that we need to change our ways to ensure that plastic doesn’t choke us all to death? Now take a minute to wonder if we’ve stopped making plastic? 

Attaboy, we absolutely haven’t. We keep encouraging biodegradable options but nobody has asked to stop plastic because that seems too radical an option. Even if it posses a threat to our very existence, how can we have plastic completely out of the picture? 

Now, slowly, look back into the cycle of child making. You know real estate prices are high, that you can barely afford to support yourself, that schools will always overcharge you without ever actually paying the teachers right, that a child has needs – regardless of what your pay check looks like. And yet, do you stop making kids? No. 

Our obsession with look-a-likes 

I’m convinced that a lot of us could adopt kids and avoid all that struggle (both physical and financial) of child birth if we could be less narcissistic. Would a 5 year old screaming make it better for you if it resembled you mildly? And the idea of raising a child and not a person – that’s for another blog. Other than wanting to have your child look like you, do you have any rational for making one? Because those 9 months could be a personal experience for a mother and if you want your body to celebrate it’s reproductive pixie dust, by all means. But what about the second time? the third? the fourth? Are you telling me you loved wrecking your body and then recovering so much that you just absolutely could not look into adoptions? And gentlemen, do share if you’ve ever actually thought about wanting a child if it isn’t a junior you, or at all. Because the whole “omg you can’t have kids?” question is thrown around way too much. And we’re all low key terrified that we’re infertile at some point in time. So many of us don’t even stop to understand that we do indeed have a choice in having or not having kids. That there are more ways than one to have a kid and that all are ideal case scenarios. Not having kids is also an ideal case scenario. None of us want to stare at the same art piece for forever, so it’s okay if your life looks different from the next person, it doesn’t make it less of a masterpiece. Also, has a child ever helped you admire an art piece more? That’s what I thought. 

Common arguments : 

  1. The fertility rates are going down, we must ensure we have enough children for our future. – Have you wondered why the fertility rates have gone down? Do you think making hundreds of kids will solve the issue? What else are you doing to ensure that we have a future? 
  2. God. God will take care of overpopulation. That’s why there are calamities. – I thought we were over the Old Testament ways but if that’s your chosen coping mechanism, are you trying to get yourself killed? Or are we assuming that god wouldn’t kill people you care about in these aforementioned calamities?
  3. Children are gifts. – No, Children are tiny humans. That’s it. Some folks don’t keep their kids and give them away to shelters, some children don’t make it past delivery and some kids hate every minute of their existence. Children are smaller humans – nothing else. 
  4. Your purpose in life is to make a family and that is incomplete without a child. – Mating calls exist for a reason, I get it. But you don’t need smaller people to make a familial bond. You can have a family between two adults or more. 
  5. In a marriage, the child is the glue. – If you think a small human is the glue between your relationship, it isn’t. The marriage papers could be the glue. And if you find yourself in search of an adhesive, maybe look into why you’re both floating in different winds. 
  6. Who will take care of you in your old age – Children are an easy way to ensure that someone wipes your butt when you are no longer able to. Guilt is a strong emotion. But you know what else is strong? Savings. Get yourself a luxury old age home because that comes with a receipt, a child doesn’t. 
  7. One child is not enough, it needs company – Yes, this is why other people exist. Also, if you’re getting two so they distract each other long enough for you to take a nap, I totally get it. But can you support everything multiplied by two? Have you worked out their expenses with the age gap? Also, as the one who was made for company – we’re terrible influence. 
  8. Parents are like gods – Parents are glamourised and for good reason. If you’re raising anything – a plant, a cat, a dog, a human – allow me to extend my respects. However, if you’re in it to feel like a god, you’re at the right place. Just know that you’ll have to be a god, because everything you do will not be observed, it’ll be absorbed and it will indefinitely come and bite you on your ass when you’re 60 and looking at old age homes you can no longer afford. 

How to travel with a pet in India

If you have a pet in India, you already know that almost nothing is pet friendly. This includes transport. However, I just traveled with my pupper from Bangalore to Kerala. And while the entirety of that experience was unnecessarily tiresome and confusing, I did figure out the process. For starters, here are your options – Flights (only air India allows pets aboard), trains and cabs.

For flights – I recommend you speak to the group crew about it. While only Air India is the only pet-friendly flight in the country, it also comes with it’s terms and conditions. If your pet is 5kgs and below – you can travel with your pet (in a crate), you will be allocated the very last seat if the pilot driving the aircraft is cool with it. (Yes, you are to pray that the pilot is a pet lover). If you’re unable to get the pilot’s validation or if your pet is heavier, you can opt for cargo.
Things you need –

  1. The right kind of crate
  2. Fit to travel certificate
  3. Weigh your pet
  4. Pay as per the weight of the pet
  5. And your pet will get to nap in the baggage storage area

I’d recommend you reach the airport early for the same. Cargo takes time.

Travel by Train

This is the option I opted for as the Air India from Bangalore to Kerala does not (I’m not sure why) have the pet travel facilities. While traveling via train with our pet was stressful at first (due to lack of information) I would definitely recommend it. Here’s what you do.

  1. Download ISRCTC app from playstore/appstore.

2. Book either two or four first A/C tickets. This is because you get a cabin exclusively for yourself. Inability to do so may lead to your co-passengers having an issue with your pet which is honestly, not a headache I would recommend. Choose the option ‘couple’ when you are booking ticket.

3. Make sure you give the correct email address and phone number 

4. Wait for the ticket to get confirmed (we got confirmation immediately).

5. Once you get confirmation, 24 hours before departure date, take your dog to a vet and get a ‘fit to travel certificate’ (if your dog is not vaccinated with all necessary vaccines, you might not get the certificate).

6. Then take 1 photocopy of all the passengers’ aadhar cards, dog’s fit to travel certificate, a hand written letter requesting for coupe mentioning that you will be travelling with a pet (ensure that you mention your PNR number, train name and number , date of travel, names of passengers in the letter).

7. You need to submit all these forms pinned together at the district railway manager’s office (usually there will be a box where the security sits, you can submit all these documents there).

As of August 2021

8. Time to get religious. Hope that you get coupe (which is a cabin for two that can be closed so your pet gets to actually stretch.

On the day of journey, make sure you reach at least 4 hours in advance with your dog. You can board ONLY from the railway station that’s mentioned in your ticket.

You need to reach the railway station to check if your got coupe- confirm it at the enquiry or by meeting station master (we got a text message about 3 hours before departure via the app). Confirmation of coupe can be checked only 3-4 hours before departure. There is no way we can know beforehand. 

Carry a file with photocopy of passengers’ aadhar card, fit to travel certificate of the dog and the original. 

Once you reach the railway station, take your dog to the parcel office. They asked us to show our Aadhar card copies, fit to travel certificate of the dog and photocopy of train ticket. They looked at our dog and inquired if we have a crate (ours was a puppy, I don’t think you need to have a crate if it’s a full grown dog but do get a muzzle and leash to be safe).

They looked at our dog (they no longer weigh the dogs) and asked us to pay Rs 300/- in cash. They gave us a ticket for the dog – this one is important, keep it safe.

We made the payment and we were allowed to sit in the first A/C waiting lounge. 

We kept our luggage there (pro tip- carry a chain to tie your luggage to the chair) and took our dog to the other end of the railway station to feed her and make her poop and pee. We kept making her walk and play so that she gets tired (your pet can get nauseous so we’d recommend to not feed them in the train).

10-15 minutes before the train arrived we went back to the waiting room. Our ‘kuli’ (a life saver) helped us to find the right seat (pro tip- inquire where exactly the coach falls – its usually right infront of the a/c waiting room but get it confirmed from the waiting list watchman/ any other employees of railway). We do not recommend you do this alone, between the two of us and our dog, we were super stressed throughout this whole thing.

Then we boarded the train, the TT came and checked the tickets and the dog’s ticket that we received from parcel office. He actually thanked us for taking the effort total a ticket for the dog; apparently a lot of people board the train with their dogs without proper documents and when they get fined, they create a ruckus (don’t be that person). 

Once our tickets and our dog’s tickets got approved, we closed the coupe door, sanitized the entire space and kept pee pads and cleaning supplies ready (disinfectant, room freshener, clothes to mop etc).

Also, the coupe was reaaaally cold so carry enough stuff to keep the dog warm.

Now our dog peed twice and we cleaned it up immediately. We could not get much sleep. You are not allowed to let the dog roam around the corridors unattended (tip: carry some bones for the dog to chew on and stay busy)

Do not feed a lot of food /water while the dog in on train, it can cause motion sickness and the dog could end up puking (we just made sure that she drank and ate before she got on train so that we could ensure that she finishes peeing and pooping).

Our train reached the destination and we got out of the train. The journey was smooth, we just had to walk around the railway station a lot to figure out the procedure. Now that we know, it really isn’t all that complicated (if you find someone who actually knows what to do).

Here are a few shoutouts because some things did definitely work out. If you’re in Bangalore – I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE –

  1. Pawspace – We were able to drop our pup with pawspace’s pet sitter for two days as we walked around and figured out this whole thing. They are so good, the quality is great, it’s very transparent and they have great professionals. If you’re a pet parent and live in Bangalore, paw-space is the way to go. Here’s their site – https://www.pawspace.in https://www.pawspace.in
  2. Rego cabs – So after a series of autowalas and Ubers dropping us mid way or straight up denied us because we had our pupper with us (Why is India so disrespectful to animals? A conversation for another blog maybe) we found Rego cabs. They have a dedicated Innova for your pet drives. There is enough room for large dogs and you don’t have to worry about a thing. Easy to book, very sweet folks – definitely recommend. Here’s their site – http://www.rego.co.in/

Happy traveling pet parents! We hope India becomes pet-friendly soon.

An Atheist Preaching

Now before you decide to get offended by the potentially rude title, allow me to assure you that I intend no hatred to those who believe, I honestly, and try to take this well, don’t care. 

For ages now I’ve been avoiding church and praying. Now this isn’t because I fancy being hopeless. I will confess that it has taken sometime to find the beauty in faith. This struggle did start with confusion. I had questions, ones I didn’t get answers for except the repetitive and my personal favourite reaction “You just believe in god noe”. I soon realised that I couldn’t ask questions to people who weren’t ready to hear, so I learned on my own. I learned that I was not looking for faith, I didn’t relate to it, I didn’t find it as my purpose in life and without it too, I could go through my life. 

Before you jump in to analyse that and question me, understand that I don’t expect someone to lead me into the way of faith. If I do someday decide to try it out, I do know my options, thanks for the concern. As I’ve been going through this, I’ve come to face some patterns.

  1. Religion matters. 
  2. It slips into most initial conversions we share.
  3. It is a part of one’s image.    
  4. It takes up some space in your weekly plans.
  5. Some people even marry around it. 

I’ve been in plenty of conversations where my absence of faith turns into this round table discussion wherein people try to answer my question and find immense pleasure if they happen to shout out their thoughts at me. Now this happens to be a larger crowd behaviour around me (I seem to look like a good christian fella). There are a handful of people who aren’t as uncomfortable as the rest, by it. 

Now to those who can listen, this is my piece of the preaching bit. 

  1. No, I don’t think being an atheist is cool. For those who think this is some leather jacket, alpha-male/female, riding bikes and smoking weed sorta lifestyle, please don’t drag the clan, be you, don’t take shelter in this thing. 

2. I assure you, the phrase “Just believe in god noe” holds no value and I wish you’d stop.

3. Please don’t ask me or anybody about their religion if you’re not ready to accept them all.  

4. Stop saying “Omg, you don’t look atheist.” I can assure you, nobody, ever, looks “atheist” or “gay”. I don’t know where this notion stems from, kindly find time to unlearn it. 

5. Do not assume that I’m here to attack you faith. Some individuals, both devoid of faith and those who are about it, can find the beauty in humanity. You don’t need to explain why you believe or any of that. Let’s think of it this way, while the scriptures are a Holy book to you, I treat them as books. Zero disrespect. 

My end note is pretty simple but kindly understand, I do not speak for the clan. I’m not a fan of categorisation of ideas or any of it.

Accidentally Eco-friendly

It’s lovely to know that some habits, that come naturally to us are a step in the right way. The problem however is that the majority of our habits aren’t “Ideal.”

Here are some of the observations I made this month.

CCD seems to be doing it right! Greener options at your counter!
Met this vendor names Aruna, told me ” Everybody needs a matka during summer, so I made it more High Tech”
A friend recently yelled out ” ‘Eco part of ecofriendly’ but all freaking plastic bottles”, do you read out descriptions too? These folks

Some of the things we do right involve :

  1. Using stairs instead of elevators in our buildings – Not only is this a healthier option but it also ensures saving some amount electricity and let’s not forget all the infrastructural waste involved. Some of us don’t do this because of all the money involved and I believe it comes to mind only after making a building with more than 4 floors, traditionally speaking.
  2. Utensils – Steel/wooden/mud utensils are quite popular in some cultures, more so in Asian kitchens, these are great alternatives for plastic. The use of such utensils and other kitchen appliances ensures long term use and easy disposal.
  3. Our storage choices – One of the perks of not having great import material selection in my country is the absence of zip-lock bags. I know, super convenient. But here’s the thing, you get a 100 in a pack and suddenly you need a ziplock for everything. Not so ideal. In the absence of such luxuries, you store your fruits normally i.e, without a shield, which is quite appropriate if you ask me. Use your containers, or store them casually, all it takes is regular cleaning – which I support and encourage.
  4. Social Media Addiction – We keep scrolling, in the morning, while using the loo, at the bus stand, in bed, everywhere. The chances of us not knowing about environmental issues is extremely minimal. And every once in a while it affects a person or two, which is the intention of this blog as well. With the prominent discussions on the issue, even the smallest group of people who are affected is a good sign.

Tried Going Zero Waste Yet?



Lets say you’ve grown up and decided to get your act together. This would involve starting a savings account, buying less and investing more, buying something like a plant or pet to test your responsible self and if you’ve figured it all, you think of the Zero-Waste life.








When I thought of giving it a try, here are all the reasons that it didn’t quite work out.





Supermarkets sell nothing without plastic. The toothbrushes, shampoo bottles, food products, name it and it’s probably packed in plastic. A few items like – jam, sugar and other items sold loosely might seem like a good option but it’s rare to find paper bags for them as well.





Here’s where traditional stores stand out. Indians are familiar with the concept of “Sabzi mandi” which roughly translates to market I suppose. I remember visiting these kind of markets when I was younger. The reason i mention this is because these markets sold almost everything with no plastic in the picture. People were expected to carry tins and cloth bags to carry the veges and grains. Slowly plastic crawled in and we lost our ways to markets.





Having failed in my attempt, I did what I do best, YouTubed “How to get into the Zero waste life?” The results were fun, A bunch of folks tried the lifestyle and tracked zero waste stores that were build exclusively to make sure that the use plastic was controlled. For those who don’t know how these stores work, it’s basically a supermarket but one that requires you to carry your containers to buy things. Lets say you have a container for dish soap or cereal, you can get them to the store, buy directly in it (the container and material will be weighed separately). This way you avoid packaging and you don’t even have to unpack.





Now I’m all about that but then I didn’t find a store of that kind around my place, so I went on and did some online shopping, or tried to at least. Again, nothing comes without packaging and therefore i went to the packagefreeshop (its the name of a store I did not make that up), don’t get me wrong, I think they’re great but do I want to be bankrupt trying to ship products to India? No thanks.





So what did I learn? The availability of products without plastic does help people to make a sound choice but they shouldn’t be scared off by the price. Also, If you can carry a bag/container and visit a market or places that do offer you option, take the step. Maybe we can stop making more food delivery systems and work on companies with similar values like the packagefree.

When Do we usually care?

We all care too much don’t we? We work the extra hour, we study until we get validations, we run to relieve the stress, we try to stay updated with everything, we constantly try to improve. Its lovely that we do care about all these little things, it’s just a little odd that we care about things that are specific to just us.

Do I think that’s bad? no. Do I think we need to seriously reconsider things we prioritize, uh huh!

We’ve all build our four walls, a space where everyone and everything except high-speed internet is restricted. We’re basically turtles trying to make our shells pretty. This is partly because we have convinced ourselves that beyond those walls, there isn’t much worth investing time in. So we keep watching all those YouTube video about how to organize an already arranged place to make it more ‘liveable’. Some of us also take drastic steps like adopting a pet or getting a plant. In our attempts to beautify this personal space, also popularly known as ‘home’, we keep forgetting to look out our windows.

While we struggle to hang that frame with a picture of Iceland on it, we forget to enjoy the annoying crappy city we’ve gotten too used to. We spend hours to make sure everything is in its place and to keep our homes clean, how many times do we think of the same while stepping out. We live with this bizarre idea, one I fail to understand, that it’s okay to litter, spit and avoid using dustbins in public spaces because you don’t live there.

If cleaning your house comes naturally to you, then not dirtying the public should be instinctive. This includes not peeing on the walls (what on earth is that about anyway), not throwing down that cigarette butt (because one bad choice is enough, really), not using plastic and just being a responsible and sound person in general.

While speaking with a college student, I happen to discover one of the most fascinating responses to “why don’t you care?”, to which he responded, “I do care but then again… there are people to clean garbage. Also how am I supposed to pick waste from the ground in front of everyone.” It’s interesting to me how we are all extremely self-aware and conscious when we are asked to pick up waste and dispose it rightly but somehow extremely shameless when we do litter.

So here’s what I think we should do, while we clean our rooms and try to make our space ‘homely’, let’s try to make our public spaces clean as well. We could do tiny things like :

  1. Carry the waste home if you don’t find a dustbin
  2. Always carry a cloth bag, don’t use plastic
  3. Don’t litter. Take the trouble of finding a bin
  4. Use public toilets, they exist for a reason
  5. Take public transport, or try to.
  6. Find ways to reduce producing waste

And most importantly, consider it your right, to TELL EVERYBODY WHO
DOESN’T CARE, TO PICK UP THEIR TRASH.

It’s Never Too Late To Care

Picture this – bright blue sky with calm clouds swaying with the wind, dark and light green grass, tickling your feet every time you try to wiggle your toes. The flirty wind touching your skin, running through your hair and as you stretch out your hands to feel it, passes through the gaps of your fingers and then slowly runs away from attachments. Just as the whisper of wind leaves your ears, a chirping of a strangely familiar birds from a distance. The buzzing sound of the bees, they’ve started their work too early while the butterflies keep chasing each other, it’s too beautiful to be working anyway, right? Now allow yourself you breathe in this beauty, the slight chill you feel between your nostrils, clear light air, carrying the faint smell from the flowers, do you identify it? Let it out slowly, let yourself relax and consume all that’s around you because let’s be honest, that’s not going to be real for much longer.

Long gone are the days when we could sit down and take in a view with a deep breath, today we just run around covering our noses with masks and hope to fly to our destination because leave flowers, we don’t even have the luxury of scentless air, its all perfumed with premium wet waste odor, with a pinch (or sometimes the whole jar) of sewage smell and just to ensure that it is strong enough, we also have a million vehicles smoking out thick black gas.

So how’d we get here? Sure we evolved too much and invented a whole bunch of things to our credit but how many of them came back crashing on us? Lets not go down the tragedy lane. It’s simply depressing to look through history and ponder upon all that we’ve screwed up. So for a change, let’s look at things we’ve done right.

While we have the fastest and ‘coolest’ sportscars on our roads, we also have affordable as well as luxury electric cars that make sure you can drive to places without gifting nature the warm black smokes (the cuter name for carbon monoxides and nitrogen oxides). We now have solar energy options because it’s unlikely for hydroelectricity to function for much longer. There’s an eco-friendly option for just about all our daily needs like – utensils, packaging items, storage options, personal care, etc.

Companies like package free, bamboo India are quite popular in their contribution to ensuring a greener and waste-free lifestyle by providing consumer options and alternatives to products. There are indoor plant varieties being sold almost everywhere, smoke filters made available, glass, steel, and wooden items sold at cheaper rates, cloth bags being sold in supermarkets but what good it is if nobody understands the need for these?

Having these alternatives come to you at your doorstep if you’re willing, would mean nothing if you don’t understand the gravity of the matter. While taking plastic bags, if the thought of it suffocating a sea animal occurs to you, would you still buy it? While asking for that straw, if you think of all that contaminated waste, would you still choose to not drink it directly from the cup? When you hear about how plastic toothbrushes do not decay or get recycled and form enormous plastic domes on various wastelands, do you think of switching to wooden or wheat-fiber ones?

Because if you find joy in ignorance, then sure, enjoy your little plastic palace and let it slowly drown you. But if you see the beauty in nature and believe that you can make a difference then don’t use plastic. Don’t let people say ‘you care too much’ or ‘are you crazy or something?’ when you try to reduce waste because while the crowd waits for waste disposal system to do some magic and turn toxin to trees, you could make the change, however little it may seem. Nothing is more classy than caring about the right things and taking the effort for the same.

Why are environment issues mainstream?

As species who place themselves above the eco-chain, it is inevitable for humans to not participate in everything that goes about in the world, both green and grey. Through the recent years, there have been loud attempts to increase awareness amongst people about the nature of impact we have on everything we touch. From our deepest oceans to the mountain tops, we’ve left an imprint, one that we mustn’t be proud of. Disturbing all that co-exists and still expecting minimal disturbance for our comfort is probably just one of our many hypocritical acts.

We stand at a time and place where we know the consequences to our actions and yet somehow convince ourselves to remain passive. We may not seem to care about the pile we add to this nurturing planet but we sure complain every time it behaves undesirably.

This is where write-ups come in hand. We know that we’ve been conditioned to not care about nature although that’s all we’ve read growing up. Adults, with their adult problems, often forget what the purpose of awareness truly is. People who share an interest in matters related to the environment and take the time to write on it usually have one of the two aims. Firstly, to make readers understand what their actions result in and secondly, what actions to take, both aspiring to build a crowd that shows gratitude to this ever giving planet, and respecting its limitations.

So why must one read up on environment write-ups? Problems like the use of plastic, petrol, or any other material that we believe have no substitute and are the foundation of a comfortable life can be broken down with the help of such write-ups. Furthermore, there is an ease of transitioning from a careless lifestyle to one where one makes conscious efforts to make minimal damage to nature and live sustainably.

Lighter write-ups that present complex information by breaking it down in a way that it facilitates broader and better understanding amongst all who seek information regarding the same. For all the clusters that exists, there’s almost always a simple solution, one that needs to be brought to light for the masses to use as the guiding force.

Tutorials on how to live green, promotion of organic farming, books and other write-ups on a healthy and sustainable lifestyle, advertisement of eco-friendly products and services are all functional steps that help achieve a better standard.
