Here are some chilling facts!
Every single day, Britain produces enough rubbish to fill Trafalgar Square – up to the top of Nelson’s Column!
India probably does the same, or worse, like a 1000 Taj Mahals crammed with trash! Almost every Government building in my city, Bangalore, has leaking taps in the loos and the bathrooms! They are never fixed!
The Japanese throw away 16 million pairs of chopsticks every day – all of them made from the precious wood from the tropical rain forests of Sarawak!
These facts can drown us in despair! Instead we can just do one thing at a time to feel better: take a shower instead of a bath.Not leave the taps open while we are brushing our teeth, or washing our hands, hair etc.
