Soon, a data bank of doables to protect the environment that even children can take up on their own
To protect the environment, the Government is preparing a data bank of doables — which everyone, from children to senior citizens, can take up on their own, Union Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan has said.
The Minister, who started a plantation drive here, said that the data bank will be made public to enhance awareness and to educate people on environment-related issues and create a sensitive society. “The plantation drive is a token programme. In the days to come, we are drawing up several programmes that will make our environment pollution-free,” the Minister said.
The Minister said that environment protection was in our DNA. “There is a tradition of feeding ants and birds in our country, and thus protection of flora and fauna is inherent in our culture.”
