bserved globally on 28th September every year, today commemorates Green Consumer Day. As an observance dedicated to sustainability and salvaging the Earth’s resources, the focus of this day is to highlight and encourage the practice of conscious consumption, ensuring that our day-to-day purchasing habits do not adversely affect the environment or contribute to its pollution.
Today’s world is dealing with its own set of troubles. Dire and unsettling environmental issues such as climate change, global warming, natural resources depletion, deforestation, ocean pollution, desertification, etc. are rampant everywhere alike! If not heeded in time, these occurrences could pose a direct threat to humankind and other species. To evade the harrowing consequences of such phenomena, it becomes the responsibility of individuals to wear a conscious cap and make an effort at the grassroot level. Buying and consuming eco-friendly products along with raising awareness about reducing, reusing, and recycling hence become enormously crucial. Bringing about a change at a personal level also assures a guilt-free experience and can contribute copiously to the betterment of the nature in the long run.
