Avoid plastic- Use Sustainable products
We are becoming plastic every day. We all consume so much of plastic in terms of snack wrappers, straws, containers, milk/curd packets, tooth brushes, ear buds, etc. It is because we find plastic easy and low cost substitute of other materials, but this easiness is killing our Nature, changing the environment, clogging soil, polluting water bodies and all this is happening only because we don't know how to stop or avoid plastic. It is difficult to use sustainable products instead of plastic, but we can surely reduce the use to some extent and give a chance to heal nature. We can start by carrying a jute/cloth bag for shopping instead of taking polybags with every purchase, we can collect our plastic waste and give it for recycling, we should avoid using straws or plastic food storage boxes as much as possible, also straws can be easily re-used after washing, instead of buying plastic pots for keeping plants and other decorative items, go for more eco-friendly clay pots, also we can use old plastic tubs/buckets to grow plants instead of buying new plastic pots, etc. There are so many ways to help nature get back on its feet. So much of plastic goes in ocean and other water bodies, consumed by fishes and sea birds, they all suffer and die, it is in our hands to do some good and return the favor. So let's join our hands together and pledge for a making a better future for us.

Plastic Pollution free country
Companies making potato chips, soaps, cookies or any dry edible products wrapped in plastic bags, needs to switch to biodegradable bags. Usually edible products and soaps come with expiry date , why not give them a greener coat that can also expire if not sold within the expiry date of the product. Believe me these wrappers are filling up our lands, polluting our water and air silently. They are causing harm that we cant even imagine . Companies like Pepsico, ITC Limited cant stay blindfolded on the plastic pollution that their products are causing and keep writing about achieving sustainable goals in their press releases on respective websites. These plastics go unnoticed, but they are the biggest polluters. If using biodegradable bags is nearly impossible bring in some policy , you can call it Consumer Money Back Policy (CMBP) where companies can charge INR 2-5 extra on all products mentioned above , On returning these bags to any shop one can get this amount back , this way the recycling may get easy instead of polluting land, air and water. Secondly, even if one fails to returns and throws away the wrapper, any person who is looking to make some quick buck will automatically pick it up, return to any shop and indirectly contribute to environment.

Fraudulence in the name of PUC- Pollution under control certificate
I am an active member of change.org since 2015 and have signed many petitions through out these years. I thought it several times to start my own petition regarding various environmental, corruption issues etc. Most of the time I abandoned the plan but this time I want to raise my voice and I need support of all the change.org community to stop the fraudulence in the name of PUC (pollution under control) certificate. PUC is a certificate issued to the vehicle owner if the pollution emitted by the vehicle is as per norms. It is checked by instrumentation after running vehicle engine and measuring emission of gases from vehicle exhaust. If the measurement is under the norms, then certificate is issued after charging nominal fees of ₹60-100. Few months back I went to get PUC certificate for my four wheeler. When I turned on my engine, the checker told me that there is no need to turn on the engine and he himself set the values of different gases on the computer and issue me certificate after charging the fees. I asked him to do it honestly but he replied now-days it works this way. Again same thing happened when I went for PUC for my two wheeler. I don’t know that if it happens at all PUC checking centres but if it happened with me then I am sure there are others who do the same. My point is on one hand we say that we want to have our surroundings clean and pullution free but if the vehicle we are driving is emitting toxic gases to our environment, how is this going to work? Whenever I talk about this issue with people no one seems to be bothered but if this fraudulence is happening in the name of PUC, we should fight and stop this. We are paying for PUC every 3 month or 6 month period depending upon our vehicle and if they are just issuing this certificate without checking then it’s just a FRAUD. Please sign my petition so that Ministry of Road Transport and Highways can be made aware of this and can control this fraudulence before this thing become universal.

Maintenance of Current Pollution Level in India After LockDown
Namastey India, As we all are in home and reading several news about the reduction in pollution level across the world specially everywhere in India. We have seen the viral photos of mountain range visible from Jalandhar and I also saw something for the first time from my terrace, i was able to see Pitampura TV Tower (Netaji Subhash Palace) which is about 10-15 km from my home. Also I watched news about river Ganga and Yamuna which has much more clean water now because of lockdown. In this case, I immediately got this thought that it was almost impossible to do it like this without lockdown and government and concerned authorities should plan in the remaining days of the lock down (It might get extended as well) to how to maintain this controlled level of pollution in India. I might have not written it well but I thought I should do it immediately as I might feel motivated to do it later. I am sure many people might be thinking about the same too and of course the concerned people as well. Please sign this petition if you think that concerned authorities should plan about this.
