As the World is changing, so are values, traditions, and culture. The family structure from the Early Vedic period – of joint families living under the same roof is now becoming quite obsolete. People now feel the need to have their own personal space and personal homes, because everyone leads a different lifestyle.
This changing lifestyle, the nuclear family structure, although better in terms of privacy, space, and growth, comes with its own drawbacks that have an environmental impact. More homes, more cars, more pollution, more noise, and much more chaos. The amount of carbon footprint for the same number of people in a nuclear as compared to a joint family also increases tremendously.
In such a scenario, instead of regressing back to older traditions, we can take steps forward in the right direction – The green direction. All of our problems today can be alleviated with a simple solution – Plantation.
Planting trees helps reduce pollution exponentially. They absorb noise, filter the air, and also prevent soil from being eroded. They are a great support in restoring the balance of nature, which we have sadly disrupted heavily with our actions.
You can be the change you wish to see. You can also bring your significant other on board, to bring change together. The union of marriage is all about togetherness, and bringing change together is a very honorable and noble act you can perform.
