Our goal is not just an environment of clean air and water and scenic beauty. The objective is an environment of decency, quality and mutual respect for all other human beings and other living creatures- Gaylord Nelson
The United Nations designated April 21 as International ‘Mother Earth Day’ in 2009. The purpose of celebrating this day is to promote harmony with nature and Earth; to achieve a balance among the economic, social and environmental needs of present and future generations of humanity. At Samsidh, we celebrate it on June 6th every year, it does not stop just here, we follow few practices every day to resonate with one of the core values of Samsidh; Compassion to Nature .
We promote the usage of steel lunchboxes and steel water bottles instead of plastic, we promote the usage of Ink pen to avoid the usage of ‘single use plastic’, we use less paper, save electricity and water as much as possible. Most of our schools complete their energy requirement by having solar energy panels. Our students make useful items from the used material, like clothes, paper, and single use plastic. Our students also create awareness in the neighborhood and the community.
Inculcating these practices at the young age will take us a long way in saving our resources for the future generation, at the same time keeping our Mother Earth clean.
