National Biological Diversity Day

MAY 22, 2022

Earth is home to almost 8.7 million species of plants and animals spread all around the globe. These animals and plant species make up the natural sauna of our ecosystem. They are the fire and fuel to the rich biodiversity that we are blessed with. Tropical rain forests cover 7% of the world’s area and they contain half the world’s species. These tropical rainforests are the lungs of our world. This is changing though, due to the rise in pollution levels.

About 30% of world’s bird species depend on tropical rain forests.

The world’s resources are depleting rigorously and there is not much that we are doing to stop that process. The use of renewable natural resources is promoted but not adapted, this behavior shown by the leading oil and gas manufacturing industries is one of the key reasons as to why there is so much loss of biodiversity accounted in the names of these organizations. The constant need and demand for urbanization has only led us all to chaos. Urban city life offers people opportunities to grow and make a livelihood for themselves. All of this affects the natural ecosystem of our planet which is very essential for the all the living beings to sustain.

But measures are being taken to restore all that we have lost. There are so many projects that are being undertaken in order to heal the forests that were destroyed in the name of urbanization. Some projects being undertaken are, for example, The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of UN working on a project that aims to restore 100 million hectares of land by 2030. India is also on a mission to restore 26 million hectares of degraded land by 2030 as well. So it’s not like countries and organizations aren’t taking any efforts to make the world a better place. But for change to come, we must change as well, our habits must change.

Climate change is sometimes misunderstood as being about changes in the weather. In reality, it is about changes in our very way of life.

– Paul Polman

We are the ones responsible for our own carbon footprint and it is the leading cause of human induced climate change. Today’s way of our life generates huge carbon footprints that we don’t even realize. So what do we do to reduce our carbon footprint? We must live in a way which generates no carbon footprint. People around the globe are changing the way they are living by choosing what to use for their daily needs carefully so as to reduce their carbon footprint.

Even you can adapt to certain ways in order to reduce your carbon footprint. Limiting meat consumption, avoid wasting at all costs by only buying what you need, stop using plastic, reduce and rethink about transportation and by using products that don’t affect the environment and serve your purpose as well. Today many such health and wellness products are made while keeping the environment in their mind. AC’s, fridges, microwaves, air purifiers and ionizers are being manufactured with the least carbon footprint possible.

Air purifiers and ionizers are made with the intension of sanitizing the air. They are health and wellness products, that are made with the intension of easing the life of people. There are a few air purifiers and air ionizers that are promising and have zero ozone generation. One such air ionizer is manufactured by Burge Electronics, one of the leading startups in the country that manufactures Air Ionizer under the brand name of Ion Dome

It is certified by ICMR recognised and ILAC accredited RGCB lab and it has zero ozone generation.

We must reduce our carbon footprint and to do so we must begin by improving our living. Cutting the cost that makes nature suffer more because good natural biodiversity is our only home of a better tomorrow!
