On the eve of 50th-anniversary celebrations of the Earth Day, NGO Tammana organized an event named “Prithvi”, its first Global Digital event, which ran for a week. In order to increase the participation on this earth day,they registered the event on earthday.org which enabled the team to be identified over the globe and extend their reach amongst global volunteers.
Founder President, Isha Kakaria quoted that “the global pandemic Corona Virus came unannounced, so little could be done to avoid the repercussions. But the earth had been deteriorating for so long, gave us many warnings in the form of climate change, melting glaciers and wild bushfires, etc. So it’s high time we act responsibly before another pandemic could take a toll on human lives.”
The main aim of this event was to create a difference through small steps that build a solid foundation to adapt an eco-friendly way of living and protecting Prithvi.
Over the week, the team Tammana regularly created awareness through various social media channels towards Environment’s 5 R’s (Renew, Recycle, Reuse, Restore, and Repair). A to-do list was shared which included activities to be performed like planting more trees, turning off taps while brushing & carpooling, etc.
A list of don’ts included activities not to be performed like overcharging phones, using polybags, wasting food & printing unnecessarily, etc. Another list was shared to encourage people to adopt an eco-friendly lifestyle by using methods like: public transport, induction cooking, planting trees, using LED lights & rechargeable batteries, etc.
A lot of people pledged to adopt these sustainable methods of living.
The NGO has always promoted and engaged in activities surrounding environmental consciousness like paperless functioning through digital documentation, organized several tree plantation drives, adopted carpooling for meetings & strictly avoided the single-use plastic. Team Tammana would continue its Go-Green Initiative to help mother earth heal.
