It is not a new thing that we tell you our planet is in danger; we all know it by now that in every sense we are losing our planet day by day. With increasing global warming, depleting ozone layer, exhausting freshwater resources, degrading land and forest, polluting rivers and oceans and degrading air quality the planet earth is soon going to be a planet unsafe for living organism.
Chances are we exhaust all the resources and spoil the remaining once as much as that our future generation may not be able to receive any resources from the earth.
This is why we have come up with some measurements that we as citizens and government as the regulator should take to save the planet.
1. The initiative should be taken to save rainwater
In the drought-prone areas, the government should make it a law that people practice rainwater harvesting at every house. Rainwater harvesting is a very natural and helpful way to retain fresh water and it used to be practiced in many areas. And now it is the high time people start collecting rainwater in every house.
2. Solar panels
In order to make enough energy for every house and that too the greenest way possible, the government should not only encourage people but now is the time it forces people to install solar panels at their houses. Solar energy is the best way to retain energy at a very low cost and people should consider it as a mainstream affair.
3. Reduce Plastic
We are tired of hearing that plastic is that giant monster that humankind invented for their own loss. Plastic is not a biodegradable material and it takes more than forever to decompose a plastic bag totally, naturally. There are chances that first-ever plastic bag or bottle is still somewhere on the planet. The least we can do is, not only instruct local markets to stop giving plastic carry bags but also, put a ban on manufacturing companies that sell their products in the plastic bags or bottles.
4. Waste management
When it comes to biodegradable and non-degradable waste material, we have another bigger issue to deal with, especially in India and that is waste management. Indian government should make firm laws and implement them to teach citizen to differentiate between biodegradable and nondegradable waste material. Other than that, dumping of the waste in the rivers and oceans is no more a solution to getting rid of the waste.

5. Road Safety
Every year thousands of road accidents are recorded across the country and most of the time it is because of rash driving and not following of traffic rules. It is very important for the government to make firm traffic rules and moreover make sure that traffic rules are followed strictly by all (including the officials) to lower the road mishaps.
6. Plantation of more trees
It is very important for the governments that it makes a firm rule that a number of plants need to be implanted every year. Not just the officials but the people should plant a number of trees in their area and maintain them. There should be a total ban and hefty fine on those who cut down the tree in their areas for making houses or whatsoever their reasons might be.
7. Quality of Education
It is also necessary that each child gets to go to school. There are already plans made and “implemented” but we know the illiteracy rate and see children begging as the streets. Primary education should be necessary for every child and quality of education should be better.
8. Encouragement for small business owners
To improve the economy of the country the government should find some alternative that can help small shop keepers as they are losing business due to e-commerce companies.
