  1. हिन्दचक्र द्वारा पर्यावरण और परिस्थितिकी के प्रिति जागरूकता की दृष्टि से एक सराहनीय पहल और सर्वेंझण, आर्टिकल में आपने बम्बो बोतल यानी बांस की लकड़ी से बने बोतल का ज़िक्र किया है जो की एक बेहतरीन सुझाव है भारत सरकार की नई बांस नीति जो की बांस उत्पादन को बढ़ाने और इससे जोड़े किसान और कारीगरों को रोजगार प्रदान करेगा ख़ासकर उन लोगों को जो दूर दराज़ के वन झेत्र में रहते है, एक बार फिर आपकी पर्यावरण के प्रिति जागरूकता को आगे बढ़ाने की पहल को बहुत बहुत साधुवाद और धन्यवाद 👌👏👏

  2. Clearly this article comes up with the numbers to show that we all aware of the repercussion but still as an individual we not doing enough.
    Awareness is the only solution.

  3. Good initiative to spread awareness. We know how harmful it is but not everyone knows how to resolve the problems. Hope that this helps many people.
