2010 Eco cartoon exhibition, India
The sun, the moon and the stars would have disappeared long ago... had they happened to be within the reach of predatory human hands. - Havelock Ellis, The Dance of Life, 1923.
Man has two faces. He is the creator and destroyer too. But concerning to environment, he is always the destroyer.
If we look at it historically, man is continually destroying his environment, for changes to occur. One should flatten a hill or a mountain for one to build new roads and infrastructure. One has to cut all the trees in the forest for mans dreams in building houses and bridges to be realized.
Do business with the environment in mind - systematically
Environmentally conscious and resource-saving actions are essential for one and all today. The aim should always be to improve the economic and ecological conditions today for future generations.
Many organizations and social groups now have programs and activities dedicated to environmental issues.
