As part of Green Action Week, on the theme of sharing community, Consumer VOICE organised an event on 31st October 2019 with the residents of Vivek Vihar and Ghaziabad (NCR). The residents joined hands by planting air purifying plants and trees to contribute towards clean air for all campaign activities.
Vivek Vihar and Ghaziabad are some of the worst polluted areas in Delhi/NCR. The residents of the region reel under severe pollution and therefore the residents decided to take the fight in their hands through ‘Community Sharing’.
Women participants shared their experiences on green practices and working together in the community. They enthusiastically participated in the planting activities and decided to involve their kids in environmental friendly activities.
Ms.Rinki Sharma,Head Projects Consumer Voice addressed the gathering along with Shri Virender Rawat from the society association.
Participants were sensitized on the problem of air pollution and how joint efforts can contribute towards the solution. There were discussions on green practices such as using compost pit ,discarding single use plastic from everyday life, pooling for vehicles and adopting a healthy way of life etc. Participants appreciated the efforts of Consumer VOICE where they can work together and learn from each other.
