While it is an encouraging notion to believe that people are now starting to get more aware of their surroundings and taking measures to help improve the macro health of the earth, it is not always necessary that the steps they take are actually good for the planet.
Very often idle hearsay leads people to take decisions that are not suitable for the Earth and are in fact some sort of fad which is actually even more damaging than usual. Tips on how to make your life more environmentally friendly are everywhere, from reducing your plastic waste to walking or biking rather than taking buses and cars. But some advice on greening your life is more complex than it seems.
By doing our part in ensuring that we are not littering the earth especially with plastic, we are doing not just our current generation but future generations as well a huge favor. The need of the hour is to completely stop using single-use plastic and move towards sustainable living methods instead through eco-friendly packaging.
This change can first be practiced in our own kitchens with the crockery and cutlery that we use. Organizations like Dinearth produce and manufacture plates bowls forks and spoons from eco-friendly and not from plastic making this form of tableware sustaining for the planet as well. They use eco-friendly packaging and the tableware can be used in a microwave and oven as well as in the freezer to heat and store things respectively.
