Occassional blogger, photography enthusiast, apparel designer, engineer and a big believer of God. In my spare time I love to create DIY projects or chase the bliss of solitude, sipping a cup of nicely brewed coffee, munching some yummy cookies while reading a good book in a new place with a great view.

We all love the place we live in, the least we can do is to take part in encouraging everyone in our circle to protect our environment by "living simply and sustainably". Let us contribute to the global task of preventing the devastating consequences of climate change.

Here are the tips I gather which everyone must put into action now before its too late. The objective here is to promote a low-carbon lifestyle by using less of the earth's finite resources and conserving energy.

  • Use less electricity and maximize natural lighting.
  • Unplugged electrical appliances and gadgets (don't put them on stand by mode)
  • Choose low energy, long life compact flourescent lamps
  • Conserve water
  • Fixing dripping faucets or toilet tanks, if unnecessary dont flush the toilet.
  • Keep car use in minimum instead walk, cycle or use public transportation
  • Minimize shopping and purchasing new items instead have them repaired or recycled or reused
  • Buy local products - they require less energy to transport
  • Reduce our waste size, segregate at source, recycle if possible. This will prevent the generation of methane and greenhouse gases.

Happy Earth Day Peeps!
