Home Our Work Environment Awareness
Human Beings are an integral part of nature. We always consume the products of nature but rarely compensate for the loss occurring due to extensive consumption.
PECT understands the need of preserving Mother nature and hence conducts many programs such as Tree Plantation, Water Conservation, Alternate Energy Resources, and Waste Management under the Environment Awareness initiative.
Trees are not only the storehouse of oxygen but also the important element of nature. Additionally, they help in cleansing the air by enhancing its quality. The deep roots of the giant trees such as Banyan tree, Mango tree, etc help in maintaining the groundwater level and also prevent soil erosion.
PECT organizes campaigns to preserve the natural greenery and also contribute to the environment by planting new saplings.
It is scientifically proven that a human would survive without food for a week but he wouldn’t live for more than 2 days without water. Even then, water is irresponsibly wasted everywhere. On one side the urbanites have the privilege of wasting water, whereas, on the other hand, the people in villages die out of thirst.
It is also said that the amount of water wasted during a shower of an elite person, would satisfy the thirst of 50% population of a village. PECT recognizes the importance of this non-renewable resource and hence conducts various awareness programs regarding the conservation of not only potable water but also useable water. The NGO undertakes awareness sessions for the farmers, villagers, and local businessmen. On the ground level, the volunteers knock on people’s door and offer to check and fix leaking taps!
PECT identifies the non-renewable energy resources and hence suggests the use of solar energy and wind energy to conserve conventional energy resources. These programs are solely introduced for the preservation of nature by reducing the pollutants emitted by fuels and gases and also to provide a better environment to the future generations.
According to a study, it is said that on an average a person generates about 50kgs of waste per month. The amount of waste generated, its inefficient management is cordially responsible for the deteriorating human health and rapidly increasing global warming. The population growth and urbanization are directly proportional to the waste generation. And, considering the current scenario of inefficient waste management create severe hygiene issues and diseases arising from unhygienic conditions.
The easiest way to reduce the amount of waste generation is the 3R formula i.e. Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Besides, the recovery of the wanted portions and the disposal of the unwanted leftover portions of the wastes are also equally important.
