I first got involved with the environment and conservation when i volunteered with WWF-Pakistan as a teenager. I would sell their merchandise to friends and family to create awareness about the cause. Then I started doing outreach to my greater network. I also went door to door encouraging people to grow their own vegetables and herbs, even in their apartments, if they did not own a house.
Over the years, I have been seeing the effects of climate change in Pakistan and other countries as well as in the USA, where I reside now. I am in my 50s now and it saddens me to see beaches littered with garbage and filth and even if people clean it up, plastic and other debris floats in from other areas. People need to be educated as to how our actions affect the environments around us. I continue to advocate for climate change and issues related to it. Every year, I switch off the lights and appliances at 8:30pm. My family and I play boardgames in candlelight or listen to music. It gives us a chance to reconnect as well. I believe in the 3 Rs: reduce, reuse, recycle... in that order. I have begun to check the ingredients when I go grocery shopping and choose products with less packaging. I got involved with the recycle program at my daughter's school and we even won a playground made with recycled materials. I have started a recycle program at our Sunday school too. We have to start kids young to take this matter seriously. It is their future which is at stake, after all.
It is not enough to just talk and not act. We have to elect representatives who take climate change seriously and who do use rhetoric to just win votes. We need results!
I want to see a future which is clean, green and harmonious for everyone, not just people who live in rich countries. For this, all countries will have to be on board for changes in policies. We need clean air to survive, it cannot be about profits only. Before going to other planets, let's take care of the one we have been blessed with.

"Building a marketplace for sustainable products made from recycled plastics. We are based in India."
I am currently associated with Bhumiz.com, which is helping small manufacturers and sellers of products made from recycled plastic in India. We are helping them by listing their product on our website and social media handles, marketing their products, and providing them with more sales. Through our consistent efforts, we are trying to create awareness, so that people would be aware of recycled plastic products and how they can benefit this world by reducing plastic pollution.
From our childhood, we have been learning about 3Rs, but very few of us are implementing it in our livelihood. So we at Bhumiz aim to promote such behavior and activities.

I hope people will like this initiative and will support us.

We should use natural resources responsibly, because it's not just our right to use them, but there is right of generations to come. We must concentrate on building green and sustainable planet, we are cutting trees and building societies, high rise towers. For what? Is there really a need for it? Every individual must take a stand, plant trees, use less energy, control pollution, how many of you have seen Milkyway or beautiful night sky? How many miles have you traveled to witness beauty of night sky? Why can't we see it in cities? It just because of light pollution. Even I had to travel 40 miles from my city to photograph Milkyway and other galaxies. Being Astrophotographer light pollution is the biggest problem.

Hello, we are a team of people, we call ourselves the aie rebels of beauty, working towards a better future for this planet and us all. We have an organic skincare brand called aie - activism in elegance (aiecosmetics), part of aie's profits go to organizations helping and preserving the seas, this year it is for the Baltic Sea via JohnNurminen Foundation. We have also created and implemented a Code of Respect to ensure we do everything by respecting the Nature. Earth Hour Day has a special meaning for us aie rebels, thus we have decided to celebrate the birthday of aie always on Earth Hour Day by turning off the lights for one hour. This year we ask our customers and team join us on the safe of their own homes. Last year we launched a special product from which all the proceeds went to organization called Malaika drc supporting girls schooling in Congo and celebrated the Earth Hour virtually together with our team and customers and partners. https://www.aiecosmetics.com/products/aie4malaika . We believe that when nature treats us right, we have an obligation to reply in kind. Kind Regards, Saila, Pia, Veera, Pavla, Iiro, Lauri, Peter, Eija, Sanna, Fia, Emma
