Earth Hour 2015 – Today!

Today is one day…to remember that Earth, our planet, needs us…more than ever before! A part of change, she is undergoing, is because of our activity…our development, n our mess…!
So let’s make a statement – even though symbolic, today on Earth hour…
Let’s switch off non-essential lights and electrical appliances tonight…at 8:30pm for 1 hr.
Let’s b a part of this global event, happening in 100 countries.
As we cut on fuel and emissions, during that ‘prime hour’, we remind ourselves and tell younger generation…that we can still curb ‘global warming’ and hence mitigate’ climate change’.

We Participate…We Care!

SAVE MONEY ON WASTE DISPOSAL WITH TOP WASTE BROKERS!

SAVE MONEY ON WASTE DISPOSAL WITH TOP WASTE BROKERS!.

Earth day 22 April 2014

Earth, our only planet to live in, is giving us signals…climate change, heightened pollution of land,  air and water, scarcity of water and other resources, all a result of unsustainable living patterns…we need to catch these signals!
Pause and think…where are we heading to? What should be done to reverse or atleast slow down the deterioration? Can we do something about it? Should we start from today?
Earth day…a perfect day to reflect and act in this direction!
Happy Earth Day!
