Mohsin Khan

I don't keep my car engine running at a signal. I try to reduce the use of air conditioner in my car and at home and I get my car PUC checked on time. I plant trees and small plants. I try to cover my face with a mask or a clean handkerchief when I am exposed to a highly polluted area.

A lot of measures and actions should be taken. However, we all can take baby steps like carpooling or taking public transport or for that matter walking small distances. Also, I always believe we should give back to our Mother Earth so we should plant as many trees as we can and nurture them and motivate people to do so too.

I make sure that the leftovers are used as fertilisers. I switch off the lights and fans and appliances, when not needed. I also make sure that people around me don't litter. We just have to realise that just like we keep our houses clean, we have to keep our environment clean as well.

To breathe normal air is the most basic need of human beings.
