Keep the environment clean by educating the people and society

‘If trees gave gadgets or Wi-Fi connections, people would have planted more saplings. Shame! They only provide oxygen.’

In a world where technology is advancing by leaps and bounds, people forget the basic thing that they need to protect- mother earth. Where climate change, water pollution, and other environmental hazards are damaging the life of human and around them, it is important to take few steps to save the surrounding.

Here are few of the things to keep the environment clean.

4 ways to keeping the environment clean

  1. Water conservation

With numerous factories dumping harmful slush years after year in water bodies, there will come a time when you will not have fresh water to drink. To save yourself from this disaster, you need to stop wastage of water. You can start with closing running taps when not in use and save rain water to water plants.

  1. Planting more trees

Plants not only change the look of an area but are nature’s gift to fighting with various environmental hazards. They help in declining carbon pollution, conserve water, support wildlife and keep the environment cool.

  1. Careful utilization of chemicals

Do you know that there has been nearly 20% of the ozone layer (in the northern hemisphere) that has already deteriorated? With an emission of around 90% of CFC from countries like Europe and u. S, it is estimated that this depletion percentage is going to see another hike soon. To decrease this, you can at least stop using disposable items and switch to washable flatware.

  1. A small change in traveling habit

Pollution is one of the major factors or a silent killer that is harming the environment in the worst way possible. Instead of using personal vehicles, you can either take a bike, public transport or even choose to walk.

A small, considering act can make a huge difference. It is not that you have to remove every material of chemical nature from your life, but lesser usage can help a lot to keep your surrounding clean.

What are the basic responsibilities towards society?

We often speak about social and political issues. We complain and we criticize the society and our fellow citizens for several reasons. We complain that our neighbors are dirty; we complain that our society is narrow-minded; we complain that the things the children of other people are being taught are inappropriate. We too form a part of the society we live in— each of us represents a brick, and all the bricks together make up the society. Thus, if we consciously observe and keep track of the actions we perform on a daily basis, we could be able to determine how our actions affect others and the society.

Our basic responsibilities toward the society are:

  • A sense of responsibility must be capable of driving an individual towards societal welfare.
  • We must stand for the maintenance of law and order and responsibly help people rectify things whenever they do something that may cause harm to others.
  • Tolerance towards criminal activities of any kind is a sign of lack of social awareness and empathy toward our fellow citizens. Thus, a responsible behavior such as informing authorities that can take appropriate action against such wrong doings can make a difference and contribute to the well-being of the society.
  • Altruistic behavior toward the people we come across on a daily basis not only helps people in need, but also encourages them to do the same when others are in need. This creates a chain of empathetic behavior, and in turn adds up to the well-being of the society as a whole.

An individual’s responsible behavior towards society can very well be noticed through his/her behavior towards other individuals at home, school, and work or in any other place in life.  Humanitarian welfare can be maintained when we develop respect for each other and are not influenced by norms of racial or communal discrimination established by many members of the society. It is our duty to behave responsibly and keep in mind the comforts of our fellow citizens, and help each other grow as better persons.

How Does Society Influence The Lifestyle Of An Individual?

 A child’s primary source of knowledge and lifestyle pattern is his/her parents and other members at home (If any).How the family members raise the child is a crucial factor that determines the person he/she grows up to be.Whoever and whatever surroundsthe child will influence him/her as a person and the lifestyle that he/she will develop. Friends in school and neighbourhood and parenting styles at home are all responsible for the development of the child’s lifestyle. Hence, there are innumerable ways in which the society can influence an individual’s lifestyle.

Civilisation— societal norms and patterns have provided us with the ultimate framework of daily functioning. The trend of attending school, having our meals on time, going to bed on an estimated time: Is all part of the trend framed by the society. Societal values and norms shape us as individuals.

Let us discuss the ways in which society influences an individual:

  • The Societal norms provide an overall and general framework for functioning.
  • Society provides a set of moral values and all individuals must meet them.
  • The norms of the society prevent us from committing morally wrong acts. An awareness that we could be punished by the law if we do something wrong prevents us from committing such acts.
  • Societal norms and values have often been responsible for making people become what they are not. People strive to behave according to the societal expectations because the society will criticise them for meeting with the societal norms.
  • Societal perceptions about Cast, Creed and Community have always influenced our perceptions to be the same. Having an opinion or a perception different from the one set by the society will be frowned upon.

These are some of the ways in which the Lifestyle and Life Choices of an individual are influenced by the society. Although these norms provide us with a basic and necessary framework, it is our duty to hold ourselves from being oppressed by Mass Opinion.
