Say 'NO' to Fireworks!

This petition had 80 supporters

Dear Friends,

Rotaract Club of Faridabad Sankskar aims to make Delhi-NCR pollution-free by saying 'NO' to Fireworks!

RCFS brings to you this petition for you to sign and do your part in making your environment safer and healthier. We started this initiative in 2016 and we got more than 500 genuine pledges from our small town in just a single day. Via, we aim to surpass this number by a lot more and make this petition more accessible to everyone, thanks to the magic of the Internet.

Firecrackers release smoke and various minute metallic particles which are small enough to be inhaled deeply into the lungs. We already inhale significant amounts of contaminant particles stemming from traffic emissions, industrial pollutants, etc.

I'm sure we all remember the terrible smog each year after Diwali. Even "one or two boxes" per family- in a city with a population of approximately 25 million adds up to a lot of smoke.

Fireworks originated in China some 2,000 years ago and India celebrated Diwali much before this invention, historically Diwali was never celebrated with firecrackers.

This Diwali, take a pledge to return to our roots and celebrate Diwali without pollution.

The wealth that Goddess Laxmi bestows on us will not be of much use if our children are not guaranteed the right to BREATHE, for we all know HEALTH is WEALTH!

Gift yourself and your neighbours the good karma of a healthy set of lungs with Diwali. Sign the petition!
